Cast Iron Skillet season is now upon us! It’s time to whip up my favorite savory recipes that I have been eagerly waiting to make till the weather cooled. I personally believe that autumn has the best seasonal vegetables and flavors. This recipe is all about combining/ marrying a variety of them! The flavors find a way to come together to form the, perfect well balanced bite. You have the sweet crisp apples, acidity from the pickles, that bite of the mustard, and rich taste of garlic butter all on top of your beer infused bratwurst. I can’t guarantee that you won’t go back for seconds, but I can guarantee that it will be absolutely worth it!
- 1 pack of bratwurst
- 1 small purple cabbage cubed
- 3 white or red onions sliced
- 2 pink lady apples sliced
- 2 bottles of pumpkin beer
- 1 package of New England rolls
- 6 slices of Swiss cheese
- ½ stick of melted salted butter
- 3 cloves crushed garlic
- 2 tsp Mil Usos seasoning
- 1 tsp Mole Oaxaqueno seasoning
- 1 tsp Al Pastor seasoning
- (Optional Toppings) Include bread and butter pickles and mustard
- Heat two tablespoons of oil in a cast iron skillet over medium heat. Place your bratwurst in the skillet, sear each side of the sausage until golden brown.
- Add your slice apples, onions, cabbage, Al Pastor, and Mole Oaxaqueno seasonings.Let sit for five minutes covered, then stir, and add both bottles of the pumpkin beer. Reduce your heat to low and slow cook for 30-45 minutes.
- While your bratwursts are simmering, make your garlic bread New England rolls. Combine your melted butter, garlic, and Mil Usos seasoning. Lightly baste in and outside each of your rolls with the butter mixture. Broil on low until they are golden brown.
- Now that everything is done cooking, assemble your rolls. Put one bratwurst in each garlic bread roll and gently lay a slice of swiss cheese on top. Let these sit in the oven (make sure it is turned off but still warm just so the cheese starts to melt) for five minutes. Drizzle with mustard, add pickles, serve with cabbage apple onion mixture, and enjoy!
