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 ….
