Start with 2 C. of water and simmer the sausages in a skillet, this leaches out some of the fat and keeps the sausage from getting too brown. When the water evaporates brown the sausages on both sides, making sure they are cooked through. Set aside. Add onions and cook until they are translucent and lightly browned. Add apples, carrots, cabbage, caraway and the beer. Add the beef bouillon and pepper. Cover and simmer until the cabbage is tender. The last 5 minutes, add the brats to bring back up to temperature. Serve with a nice German brown bread or crusty rolls.
