Beer Bratwurst Sandwich on a Homemade Pretzel Roll - they are perfect for Oktoberfest, football parties, or just a damn good dinner!
  • 4 bottles German beer
  • 1 tablespoon coriander seeds
  • 1 tablespoon whole mustard seeds
  • 1 tablespoon caraway seeds
  • 2 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 3 large yellow onions, peeled roughly chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, smashed
  • 8 bratwursts
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 8 pretzel buns (best if made the same day), or hot dog buns
  • 2 cups sauerkraut
  • mustard
  1. Make the pretzel rolls, if you haven't already.
  2. In a large pot, combine the first 8 ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer for approximately 5 minutes and then remove from heat, letting the pot sit with its contents for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Heat your grill using direct, high heat (alternatively you can use a grill pan). Grill the bratwursts for 4 to 6 minutes per side.
  4. Serve on a split pretzel roll, place the bratwursts inside, top with mustard and sauerkraut. Serve and enjoy!
