Brats and Beer

Okay, I don’t actually make the beer.

BUT, I have developed a kicking beer boil that will transform your ordinary bratwurst into something spectacular…

1 large onion, peeled & thinly sliced

1 clove garlic, crushed

bratwursts, pricked with a fork (uncooked, Johnsonville is our favorite)

2 (12 ounce) bottles beer (Expensive brewskis are not a necessity here, people, save them for sipping on – actually, the cheaper the beer, the better, IMHO).

2 cups water (or as much is necessary to cover the brats)

1 teaspoon coriander seeds

1 teaspoon black peppercorns

1 teaspoon red pepper flakes

1 teaspoon mustard seeds

buns, of your choice (or not)

mustard, of your choice

Arrange onion slices & garlic along the bottom of a medium stockpot. Place bratwurst on top & then add the beer, water, coriander, peppercorns, mustard seeds& red pepper flakes. Simmer the sausage in the mixture for about 25 minutes. Remove the sausages with tongs onto a platter. Place the bratwursts on the grill and grill until cooked through (about 10-15 minutes).

 

 

testing again ….
