    Dib's's Note:

    The following recipe will make about 5 pounds of great bratwurst at a fraction of the cost of buying it at the grocery store-give it a try! Try serving bratwurst burgers the next time you grill. Condiments range from the traditional-Kraut and a good German Mustard, to my favorite way which is mayo, German mustard, ketchup, thick slices of tomato and leaf lettuce on a crusty, grilled bun. Delish! Cooking time is the amount of time mixture sits in the fridge.

    My Private Note




    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Cut the pork and beef into 2 inch cubes.
    2. 2
      Grind through a 1/4 inch grinding plate.
    3. 3
      If you do not have a meat grinder you can pulse it in your food processor in SMALL batches.
    4. 4
      In a small mixing bowl beat eggs and beer together until well blended.
    5. 5
      Add dry ingredients.
    6. 6
      In a large mixing bow combine the ground meat and wet mixture until well incorporated.
    7. 7
      Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate 2 hours, up to 24.
    8. 8
      The longer the better.
    9. 9
      At this point you can either stuff into casings or wrap in 1 pound packages which is what I do, then freeze.

      This was a great recipe for me to start making brats with my new grinder/stuffer. I thought the salt and pepper were to heavy for my taste. I would recommend that you add less of each, fry a patty before stuffing and judge for yourself. I also added caraway seed to taste. I will make my adjustments and keep my version of this recipe.
