This dish was created out of necessity one night when we could find little else in the fridge. Shocked by how easily it came together and just how tasty it was, German stir-fry quickly became a household staple. Not much about it is actually German – except for the origins of main ingredients like bratwurst, beer, mustard and cabbage. Be sure to choose fully cooked brats that need only to be browned before eating. Serve alone for a low-carb meal or with a side of rye toast or spaetzle noodles.
