  • Summary

    When I was a kid growing up in the Midwest, my friends and I would always pick up big packages of bratwurst to grill while watching sporting events. I wanted to re-create the sausage of my youth, and I think these bratwurst come pretty close. This is a simple, classic sausage; serve it on a crunchy roll with mustard and sauerkraut.

    Ingredients

    • 844 grams (1.90 pounds) boneless pork shoulder (or a combination of pork cuts, about 75% lean, 25% fat), cut into 1-in/2.5-cm cubes
    • 362 grams (0.80 pound) boneless veal shoulder or breast, cut into 1-in/2.5-cm cubes
