Bratwurst with Caramelized Shallots and Apples
pippin or granny smith
napa (Chinese) cabbage
Prepare ingredients: Peel and trim shallots and separate into sections.
Peel apples, cut into eighths, and core.
Cook bratwurst, halve lengthwise, and cut on the diagonal into ½-inch wide pieces.
Halve napa cabbage and shred.
In a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan, cook shallots in oil and browned, about 7 to 8 minutes.
Add 2 cups stock and cook until nearly all the liquid has evaporated, about 17 to 18 minutes.
Add apples and cook, stirring gently, for 1 minute.
Add remaining 6 cups stock along with the bratwurst, cabbage and caraway seeds; cook until sausage is heated through and apples are tender, 7 to 8 minutes.
Season with salt and pepper and serve immediately.
