- 6 bratwursts
- 6 cups lager beer

Directions See How It's Made
- Prick bratwurst all over with a fork.
- In a medium pot, combine bratwurst, beer and half of the onions. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Simmer about 15 minutes or until bratwurst is firm and cooked through. Transfer bratwurst to a plate. Reserve some of the cooking liquid.
- Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add remaining onions and bell peppers. Cook about 15 minutes or until very soft, tossing occasionally.
- Add the bratwurst to skillet in the last 5 minutes of cooking to lightly brown. If the onions and bell peppers begin to get too dark, add a few tablespoons of the bratwurst cooking liquid. Season to taste with salt and black pepper.
- To serve, spread each bun with mustard. Fill each bun with a brat. Top with sauteed peppers and onions.
