  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 lbs pork brats
  • 1 head cabbage cored and cut into wedges
  • 2 onions sliced
  • 4 peppers red and green, stemmed, seeded and sliced
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 teaspoon caraway seeds
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 8 oz light beer
  • 4 Hearty rolls
  • 8 slices Provolone Cheese


  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Drizzle olive oil over a rimmed baking sheet.
  • Toss the brats, cabbage, onions and peppers onto the sheet.
  • Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle the caraway seeds and garlic powder over everything and shimmy the baking sheet to cover everything with oil.
  • Carefully add the beer to the baking dish.
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes until the cabbage is browned and tender.
  • Strain the liquid.
  • When cool enough to touch, chop the cabbage roughly.
  • Meanwhile, arrange rolls on a clean work surface and line with cheese.
  • Spoon the brats, onions, peppers, and chopped cabbage into the rolls and wrap each tightly in foil.
  • When ready to grill, preheat the grilled and toss the sandwiches on to heat through and melt the cheese.
  • Alternatively, bake in the oven at 350 degrees until the sandwiches are heated through and the cheese is melted.
  • Peel back the foil and devour.
  • Serve with a thick grainy mustard if desired.
