I can't remember where I originally got this recipe. I am a big fan of bratwursts and this gives me another way to serve them up. It is a great comfort food recipe for me.

This is a "heady", strong German tasting dish. It reminds me of a Sauerbraten that I had once. I did change the recipe slightly but kept to the main idea and the dish came out exactly as expected. Multiple flavors with each bite. The beer flavor in near non-existent but the mustard makes it. I would like to try it with a cubed, cooked pork roast in place of the brats.

I'm of German descent and used to some interesting flavors. It was okay, and I would make it again if I had the ingredients, but was not impressed. I forgot was beer I used. Maybe a different beer would help.

I made this for DH, who comes from a backround of Greman grandparents cooking German foods and recipes, which he loves,including bratwurst. So, I'm always looking for new ways to prepare brats. I did have some trouble getting the sauce to thicken; it took quite a bit of heating to thicken the sauce. After overnight refrigeration, the sauce was thicker and even had more flavor the next day, upon reheating and serving as leftovers. I used Sam Adams Lager and I served this over egg noodles. I would love to try this again, maybe trying it with country sausage as a stand in for bratwurst. Thanks for posting!
