Oktoberfest Recipes

In keeping with the warm, soulful flavors of classic Oktoberfest, this week’s lineup takes a trip to Europe with such Bavarian favorites as smoky bratwurst links, wholegrain mustard and our housemade tangy sauerkraut.

2. Remove the pork from the refrigerator to warm up slightly for about 20 minutes
