Hard Cider Braised Brats

Recipe from Whole Foods


  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 yellow onion, thinly sliced lengthwise
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 (12-oz.) can Angry Orchard Hardcore Dark Cherry Apple
  • 4 fresh (or fully cooked) bratwursts
  • Pretzel buns, for serving
  • Whole grain mustard, for serving
  • Sauerkraut, for serving



  1. Preheat a grill to medium-high.
  2. Melt butter over medium heat in a large sauté pan with the onion, salt and pepper. Add cider and bring to a boil, then add bratwursts. Reduce heat and simmer 13–15 minutes for fresh bratwursts, or until cooked through to an internal temperature of 155°F, turning once. If using fully cooked bratwursts, simmer for 5–6 minutes.
  3. Remove the bratwursts from the braising liquid and brown on the hot grill. Cook until desired char is achieved, about 5 minutes. Serve in toasted pretzel buns with sauerkraut and a generous amount of mustard.
