Beer Brats with Slaw
The warmer weather is coming up soon and that means it’s time to fire up the grill again. A great way to start off the grilling season is with beer brats.

Beer Brats with Slaw

Yield: 4 Servings



1lb green cabbage (shredded)

¼ cup sugar

½ tablespoon salt

¼ teaspoon celery seed

¼ cup vegetable oil

¼ cup apple cider vinegar

Fresh ground black pepper (to taste)


4 hoagie rolls

4 bratwurst links

1 (12 ounce) bottle of beer


In a large bowl combine sugar, salt, celery seed, oil, vinegar and pepper. Add cabbage and stir to combine.

Place the brats and beer into a large deep skillet and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until the brats are fully cooked (about 20 minutes). Heat an outdoor grill to medium-high heat. Remove the brats from the beer and grill until browned on all sides.

Place the brats into the hoagie rolls and add some of the slaw.
