Beer Braised Brats with Dilly Potatoes

This super easy recipe is just the thing to fix any Bavarian food craving. Sauerkraut, cabbage, onion, and sausages are slow cooked in German-style pilsner beer and lightly seasoned with rosemary and thyme. Thick sliced potatoes are steamed tender before being tossed with butter and fresh dill. Everything is served with tangy Dijon mustard for dipping and spreading. If you want to boost your Bavarian-themed meal, serve this dish alongside some fresh baked soft pretzels. 

Note: We do not recommend scheduling this meal, as the starch zone is not refrigerated and the potatoes are sliced. If you would like to schedule this meal we recommend using whole, uncut baby potatoes and slicing them after cooking.
