Spicy Mustard Brats with Sauerkraut | Kita Roberts GirlCarnivore.com


  • 1 tbs butter
  • 1/2 half green pepper seeded and diced
  • 1 small onion diced
  • 2 tbs brown sugar
  • 2 teas El Diablo Jalapeno Mustard
  • 1 cup sauerkraut drained
  • 6 bratwursts
  • rolls


  • In a large skillet over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the onions and peppers and sautee until soft, about 5 minutes. Stir in the brown sugar and El Diablo Jalapeno mustard. Stir in the sauerkraut. Remove from heat.
  • Make a foil pouch using two sheets of heavy duty foil and fold together the edges. Place the sauerkraut mix in the middle and pinch the edges closed, leaving room for steam.
  • Preheat a grill to medium-high. Prick holes in the brats.
  • Arrange the brats over a drip pan on the hot grill. Add the sauerkraut packet and grill, until brats are cooked through, about 20 minutes, flipping once, a little over half way through cook time.
  • Serve on toasted buns with kraut and extra El Diablo Jalapeno Mustard for those brave enough to try more heat.
