This is my traditional way of making Brats. We use wild game meet brats that is put together by our butcher. I get it ground in packages, and then I make patties out of it. You can also use linked brats jsut the same! We love this with gravy, rice/spaetzle and red cabbage... It is definitely one of our monthly must haves!
- 1 lb bratwurst
- 1 large onion, sliced thick
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic clove
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 20 ounces beer (we prefer Budlight)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- In a skillet over medium heat Saute the garlic and butter for approx one minute.
- Add in the onions, salt, pepper, and enough beer to cover the bottom of the pan.
- Cook the onions over medium heat until tender and caremelized.
- Remove the onions from the pan and place the bratwurst in the pan. Brown the bratwurst and cook.
- Once the bratwurst are cooked add the onions and remaining beer to the pan. Cook over medium heat until the beer has reduced to a thicker sauce with the onions.
This was delicious! I followed the recipe except for the addition of a little (1/2 cup) marinade I had on hand from a previous meal. I used a good dark beer (Yeungling Black & Tan). It took about 20 minutes of boiling after the second addition of beer to reduce but when it did, it was so yummy! Thanks, Laouli, the whole family (kids, parents, & grandpa) loved it!<br/><br/>Made it again last night for a big group. 20 brats (4 pounds), a giant red onion, 6 cloves of garlic, 3 12oz bottles of Beck's Dark. It was so amazing!! I love how the bark beer reduces to a sweet, dark, syrupy sauce. It's so good with the caramelized onions. We served with hoagie rolls, boiled potatoes, and sauerkraut. I wish I could give this more stars. It is a recipe we will come back to again and again!
We thought this recipe was ok. I also used Bud Light it worked fine. I also added about 2 tablespoons of flour in the onions to thicken the gravy a bit.
I gave this recipe 3 stars. I made this recipe for Spring PAC 2009. I first want to note I used a off the wall brand bratwurst so I think that is the problem. We useually use the name brand. I followed the recipe as directed even using the Bud Light. I did make one minor change to the recipe and used 1 bottle of beer the regular Bud read 22oz my bottle says 1 pint. Overall I think we will try these again using our regular brand. Thanks for posting. Christine (internetnut)
