A great combination of beers and brats all nestled in a great bun with Pittsburgh-style sauerkraut

  • 2 sausage rolls
  • 2 C shredded Cabbage
  • 1/4 vegetable oil
  • 1/4 C white sugar
  • 1/4 C white vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. kosher salt
  • pinch sesame seeds
  • pinch of garlic powder
  • pinch of poppy seeds
  • Spicy brown mustard
  • Diced green onions
  • 12 pierogies

  2. Add remaining spices and remove from heat and allow to cool at room temperature.
  3. Grill brats according to package directions,
  4. Assemble sausage on bun and top with cabbage mixture and brown mustard.
