Tailgating Recipe: Beer Simmered Brats

Beer Simmered BratsWhen we get a craving here in the office (The Shed), we enjoy looking up different recipes and trying it out. Here’s one that I found awhile back that I haven’t shared yet and thought It would be perfect because not only does it have beer in it, it has brats. A hot brat is perfect in the lots during the fall! If you have a tailgating recipe that you would like to share shoot me a message at steve@tailgatingventures.com. If you have a picture of your recipe, that would be awesome so feel free to send that too!

Enjoy!

 

Beer Simmered Brats
Serves 6

Ready for Beer Simmered Brats? They are easy and delicious!

  • 2 12-oz. cans of beer
  • 2 large onions, thinly sliced
  • 6 uncooked bratwurst
  • 6 good quality hot dog buns or small submarine rolls
  • 1 1-lb. bag refrigerated sauerkraut, drained
  • Brown Mustard
  • Pickle Relish
  • Oil for the grill racks

Heat a gas grill using all burners on high and with the lid closed for 10 to 12 minutes.
Combine the beer, onions, and brats in a large saucepan. Set over medium high-heat and bring to a boil (use your grill side burner if you have one). Reduce the heat to low and simmer until the brats are just cooked through, about 8 minutes.

Remove the brats from the pot and place them on the grill. Grill the brats for 8 to 10 minutes,turning them frequently to brown them evenly on all sides. When they’re done, slide them into the buns and top with mustard, sauerkraut, or relish.
