German-ish Dinner?

Tonight we had bratwurst, braised broccoli rabe, and fried apples. I fried the apples in butter, which isn't really paleo, but you can do the same thing with coconut oil or lard or something and it would turn out equally yummy. :)

Sausages cooking. I simmered them in 1/4 inch of water for about 15 min, then drained the pan and let them get a little brown.

Apples frying. Just apples and butter, nothin' else.

Broccoli rabe before and after wilting down. I minced a shallot and sauteed it in olive oil until it just barely started to turn brown, then added a bunch of broccoli rabe, about 1/2 cup chicken stock, a pinch of salt, and a pinch of red pepper flakes. Covered it and let it simmer for 20 min or so.

Dinner is served! I actually only ate one of the sausages. We had some mustard with it too.

That looks like good food. What do the apples taste like?

Another great idea for a dinner. We did it with asparagus sauteed in EVOO/garlic and put a little apple pie spice on the apples. Outstanding!
