Yield: 4 -6 servings
This simple beer and sausage stew is the perfect dinner to warm you up during the chilly months of the year!


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 14 ounce package sausage of choice (beer brat recommended), cut into bite-size slices
  • 1 onion, sliced into thin semi-circles
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cabbage
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp ground caraway seeds
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 cup lager, pale ale, or other relatively light beer
  • 2 russet potatoes, peeled and cubed to bite-size pieces
  • 2 ½ cups chicken stock
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp flat-leaf parsley, chopped


  • Heat olive oil in a large pot or dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the sliced sausage and allow the slices to caramelize and brown in the oil for about 4-5 minutes.
  • Once the sausage is browned, add the sliced onions and stir. Allow the onions to caramelize with the sausage for another 5-10 minutes, until golden-brown and softened.
  • When onions are caramelized, add the sliced cabbage, stir to combine, and allow the cabbage to soften for about 3-5 minutes.
  • Once the cabbage is softened and golden, add in the black pepper, ground caraway seeds and salt.
  • Add the garlic and once it becomes aromatic, add in the cup of lager, and stir the mixture to combine. Allow the beer to reduce for about 3 minutes.
  • Add the cubed potatoes and the chicken stock. Allow the mixture to come to a boil then reduce heat to medium-low to simmer for about 40 minutes. Cover leaving a crack for steam with a lid.
  • Finish the stew by stirring in the apple cider vinegar and parsley.
  • Serve in large bowls with hearty bread and additional parsley to garnish.
