Proud Henry

Stolzer Heinrich is also known as bratwurst in beer sauce. It is an old traditional Berlin dish made from Berlin bratwurst (without intestines) cooked with dark beer and spices.

The name? Maybe Heinrich was proud as hell that he could afford this meal. The dish probably dates back to the times of Queen Luise (1776-1810) and for ordinary people meat dishes were more of a feast.
