Learn How to Cook Delicious Bratwurst

Bratwrust is a spice-laden beef, veal or pork sausage from Germany. With several variations across the region of Nuremberg and Franconia, this delicacy has been given Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) status by the European Union. It has become popular of late, with more people knowing how to cook Bratwurst. Although you can always buy cooked Bratwurst, it's cheaper to know how to cook Bratwurst yourself.

The best way to cook Bratwurst is to grill it after boiling with beer. You're going to need as many raw Bratwurst you need, beer (your preference), one large onion, a large pot and a grill.

1) Add the sausages, beer and chopped onions to a large pot and bring to boil.
2) Simmer until it is thoroughly cooked.
3) Once it is done, drain all the beer away and place the sausages on a hot grill for 5 minutes before flipping them over. You'll want nice grill marks on your sausages.
4) When it is golden brown, serve with buns or, if you have it, sauerkraut.

You can also cook it on a skillet if you don't have a grill. If you don't prefer alcohol, you can cook it in water as well.

Bratwurst may be delicious, but it doesn't have high meat content (20% at most). If you prefer a more hearty meal, it won't hurt to learn how to cook pork roast.

First, you will need to prepare the spices. You will need 1 tablespoon of dried spices (oregano, rosemary or sage), salt, pepper and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Mix all of these together for about a minute and lather it all over the pork. Make sure you massage the meat to allow the flavor to seep into it. When you are done, leave it on a rack.

Preheat your oven to 450 degrees and place the pork along with the rack in it for about 10 minutes. After 10 minutes have passed, lower the temperature to 250 and let it cook for about an hour and a half, depending on the size. When it is done, poke a meat thermometer and it should read around 150 degrees. Cover it in foil for 15 minutes before serving.

The steps may sound complicated, but they are worth it. Once you know how to cook pork roast and how to cook bratwurst, you'll never be far from a good meal.
