Slow Cooked Bratwurst with Cabbage and Onions

Bratwurst - Healing and Eating

This slow cooked bratwurst might be one of my new favorite recipes, it’s seriously that delicious. Plus, it’s easy to make and paleo friendly, and you can never have enough slow cooker recipes, at least that’s my opinion. The cabbage makes this recipe really filling and healthy, but it tastes just like comfort food. Instead of slow cooking it with ale, I used Crispin’s Original Hard Apple Cider, which gives it plenty of sweetness, and I also added a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar to balance out the sweetness with a little bit of sour. The end result is a nice tangy cabbage and onions that I couldn’t be happier with.
