    quick meal's Note:

    This is a recipe I used over the summer during a cookout. The smell this put throughout the house prior to putting the brats on the grill was insane. Everyone loved these and wanted to know how they were made. I suggest you use a dark beer that you actually like to drink because these are flavored by the beer.I have posted the Red Cabbage Sourkraut seperately. I hope you enjoy!

    Serves: 12



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Poke each brat several times with a fork.
    2. 2
      Add all ingredients to a large pot, with brats being last.
    3. 3
      Cover and bring to a boil. Turn down heat and simmer over medium. When the brats are floating on the top, they are ready to grill. This should take a half hour or so but I like to let mine simmer a little longer.
    4. 4
      Grill until desired browning.
    5. 5
      Serve with or without the red cabbage sourkraut I posted separately.

      Delicious, and safer, too! It makes sense to cook the brats through before grilling for the sear marks; you know they have been cooked thoroughly. I splurged on German brats as long as I was going to use a good dark brown ale. The brats tasted mellow (not medicinal as when just boiled in water). Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup tag game.
