Beer brats

I made a batch of beer bratwurst. They're just braised in beer at this stage; I'll finish them on the grill. Cooking them ahead of time adds flavor and also means you only have to worry about getting them nicely browned on the grill and not cooking them thorough.

I used two packages of Johnsonville original bratwurst. There are only 5 in a package, but I wanted 8. I vacuum sealed and froze the 2 remaining (raw) brats.


One yellow onion and two cloves of garlic.


8 brats fit perfectly in my 10" pot.


Add 12 oz. of beer (I used Long Trail Ale) and 12 oz. water. Bring to a boil. Lower the heat to simmer, cover, and simmer for 10 minutes or until the brats reach an internal temperature of 160°F.


Remove the brats and cool. The onions can be saved for serving with the brats as well.
