0/5 (0 Reviews)


  • 4 bratwursts
  • 12 oz sauerkraut
  • 1 bottle of beer
  • 4 buns
  • German-style mustard



Big Green Egg Cast Iron Skillet


Set your EGG up for direct cooking without the convEGGtor at 400ºF/204ºC with the cast iron skillet on the grid.

Put bratwurst into the cast iron skillet, pour beer over the top and add the sauerkraut to the pan. Braise for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the liquid has reduced by half.

Remove the bratwurst from the skillet and grill over direct heat until grill marks have appeared. Toast the buns on the grill.

Once the bratwursts have the desired grill marks put them back into the skillet. Remove buns and the cast iron from the EGG. Smear mustard on each side of the bun and add brats, top with sauerkraut. Enjoy!
