Midwestern-Style Beer Brats

Midwestern-Style Beer Brats created by Jostlori

A recipe I found on FoodNetwork.com after watching Paula Deen's Home Cooking - Tailgate Time episode.

Ready In:
40mins
Serves:
Units:

ingredients

  • 6 bratwursts
  • 6 cups lager beer
  • 2 large onions, sliced, divided
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 green pepper, cored and sliced
  • 1 red pepper, cored and sliced
  • salt & freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 hoagie rolls, split lengthwise
  • mustard, to taste

directions

  • Begin by pricking the brats all over with a fork. Using a medium pot add the bratwurst, beer, and half the onions. Bring this to a simmer over a medium high heat for 15 minutes or until brats are firm and cooked through. Place brats on a plate and save some of the cooking liquid.
  • In a large skillet heat oil over medium high heat. Add the rest of the onion and bell peppers and cook for about 15 minutes or until vegetables are soft, tossing pan occasionally. During the last 5 minutes of cooking add brats and lightly brown. If the vegetables are getting to dark add a few tablespoons of the bratwurst cooking liquid. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • To serve place brat in bun spread with mustard and top with sauteed peppers and onions.

    What a great way to enjoy brats without having to grill them. Made just as directed other than using red bell peppers (just our preference). Served with some great beer and German mustard.. YUM!

    Loved these! I've never had brats with onions and peppers before, but it's something we'll do again! I did miss the smokiness from grilling, though - so in the future will continue to grill instead of pan brown the bratwurst.

    This is so easy! I've always grilled my brats, so missed the smoke flavor a bit. But these are so moist and tender. Always have sauteed peppers and onions on my brats, so this was a familiar and delicious meal. I loved that the brats browned up nicely while in the skillet. Thanks for sharing! Made for FYC tag.

    So, so very good. Wanted something quick and easy and had been saving this one for awhile. It hit all the stars with the guys in my house and me too. The only thing I did different was have some sauerkraut on the side at DH's request, but sure wasn't needed. Love the idea of putting them back in the fry pan for a chance to get that nice crisp fry skin on them but still with the flavor of the steam. The veggies where the perfect addition. I didn't much taste the beer, but the flavor was perfect. The guys had the hoagies, but I enjoyed mine without and ate straight off the plate with the side of mustard and kraut. DH has asked that this is now the only way we'll be doing brats in the future. Worth every star and then some. Anyone looking at this recipe out there, don't just look DO IT
