Slow-cook bratwurst and onions in apple cider vinegar for juicy results. Earthy caraway keeps the sweet dish grounded, and a cool bite of broccoli slaw salad adds crunch.




  • In a 3 1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker combine onions, apple cider, garlic, thyme, and black pepper. Arrange bratwurst on top of onion mixture. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 5 to 6 hours or on high-heat setting for 2 1/2 to 3 hours.

  • Meanwhile, for broccoli slaw, in a medium bowl combine buttermilk, parsley, mayonnaise, caraway seeds, and cayenne pepper. Stir in broccoli slaw mix. Cover and chill until ready to serve.

  • Remove bratwurst from cooker. Using a slotted spoon, remove onions, draining well. Discard cooking liquid. To serve, fill buns with onions and bratwurst. Top with broccoli slaw.
