italian plum (roma) tomatoes
1 pound, ripe, cored and chopped
apple cider vinegar
freshly chopped, or 1/2 teaspoon dry
salt and black pepper
any you favorite kind, uncooked
or canola oil
drained, or as needed
vegetable or chicken
Preheat the grill.
To make the tomato-jam:
In a small saucepan, mix together the tomatoes, vinegar, sugar, and thyme.
Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, reduce the heat to medium or medium-low, and simmer, stirring, until most of the water has evaporated and the mixture becomes a thick, chunky ketchup consistency, 18 to 22 minutes.
Season with salt and black pepper. Set aside.
To grill the sausage:
Grill the sausage, turning a few times, until cooked through and dark golden-brown marks all over, 12 to 16 minutes.
During the last few minutes of grilling, grill the rolls, about 1 minute per side.
While the sausage is cooking, heat the oil and the cumin seeds in a small saucepan over medium heat until fragrant, about 2 minutes.
Stir in the sauerkraut and broth, and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring, for 8 to 12 minutes. Season with salt and black pepper.
To assemble the sandwich:
Spread the tomato jam equally on each of the sandwich rolls and then top a sausage over the jam.
Place the sauerkraut over the sausage. Press the sandwich slightly, serve and enjoy!
