My favorite way to prepare Bratwurst.
- 1 pack Beer Bratwurst
- 1 can Shiner Bock Beer/ or any German beer
- 1 onion
- Mustard optional
- Sauerkraut optional
Slice onions and cook until translucent in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Once onions are translucent add 1 can of dark beer my favorite is Shinerbach beer. Let it return to a boil.
Add in Brats into the onion/beer mixture. Return to a boil and turn down the heat to a medium heat. Cover with Dutch oven lid and let simmer and steam in the mixture. Cook until safe temperature is reached usually until the Brats puff up and is a solid grayish color with no pink visible.
Get your charcoal grill or grill warmed up. If you dont have a grill use a cast iron pan over medium to high heat. You are trying to get a crispy skin and char the Brats. The Brats are already cooked you just need the char. Should only take a few minutes each side until you reach the desired look.
Add Brats back to your beer/onion mix until you are ready to serve. The onions that are in the broth is a good topping or you can add sauerkraut to the mixture to absorb the flavors. Toast your buns and serve with some onions or sauerkraut mixture. Drizzle with mustard and enjoy.
