The idea behind this burger is to keep things simple, but not at all ordinary. I use reduced American-style beer as a braising liquid for the sliced red onion in the slaw and also as the base for the dressing. I then add some spicy brown mustard, black pepper and shredded cabbage. The result is a nice balance of sweet, tang and crunch with a hint of bitter that perfectly complements the rich bratwurst.
Combine the beer and salt in a large pot. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently to keep the foam from overflowing.
Reduce the heat to medium-high and cook at a low boil until the beer is reduced by half. Add the onions and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until the liquid has reduced to about a tablespoon, about 20 minutes.
Remove the pan from the heat, add the mustard, sugar and pepper. Mix well until all of the ingredients are completely incorporated.
Add the cabbage to the pan, stir well, cover and set aside at room temperature.
Grill the bratwurst patties per the package directions.
Slice each bun and lightly butter each half. Toast the buns on the grill.
Serve the burgers topped with a healthy portion of the slaw.
Feel free to customize the toppings to your taste. I like my wrap with avocado, tomato and lettuce while my husband likes the chicken on a bun as a club sandwich. The real key to this recipe is the marinade.
