"Hot Snot" Brats
Source: Mark Original
1 to 2 lbs. bratwurst
About 16 oz. sauerkraut
2 to 4 whole onions, peeled
2 jalapeno peppers
About 2 T. olive oil
1 beer (cheap & domestic)
Cut jalapenos in half; scoop seeds into sauerkraut and mix well. (For less heat, skip this step.) Place sauerkraut mixture in bottom of pressure cooker. Place onions on top of sauerkraut and then lay bratwurst over the onions. Place jalapeno peppers on top. Drizzle in olive oil and then pour in beer. Seal pressure cooker lid. Cook for 8 minutes once the pressure cooker top is "dancing." Cut burner off and let pressure cooker cool down slowly.
- If you don't have a pressure cooker, I think you could simmer the ingredients in beer. Probably for about 30 minutes? We haven't tried it, but I think it would work.
- For a "Smoky Hot Snot Brats" version, use a chipotle pepper and some adobo sauce in place of the jalapenos. The smoky version is my favorite!
