Ale-Braised Bratwurst with German Potato Salad

Serves 4 to 6
Time 25 min
Bratwurst can be made from chicken, pork, turkey, veal or even buffalo, but pork and veal are the traditional choice. Typically spiced with warm flavors such as nutmeg and ginger, this German sausage pairs well with classic German-style potato salad.

Method

In a large saucepan, bring ale to a simmer and add bratwurst.

Simmer until cooked through, 25 to 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, place sliced potatoes in cold salted water in a large pot and bring to a boil.

Cook until fork tender, yet not so soft they fall apart, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain and set aside.

In a skillet, cook bacon until crisp. Crumble and set aside.

Pour off all but 2 tablespoons of bacon fat.

Over medium heat, whisk flour into the bacon fat and cook until thickened, 2 to 3 minutes.

Stir in sugar and mustard, followed by 1/3 cup water and vinegar.

Cook, stirring frequently, until thickened, 1 to 2 minutes.

Remove from heat, stir in potatoes and bacon and toss gently to coat.

To serve, slice bratwurst and divide among plates. Serve with potato salad.
