With the 4th of July just around the corner, now is a perfect time to share a delicious brat recipe.
For excellent flavor, these brats are simmered in beer, garlic and onion. The end result is nothing short of the best bratwurst you’ve ever eaten.
Garlic and Onion Bratwurst – Inspired by Michael and Leah
- 1 package bratwurst
- 1 medium sweet Vidalia onion
- 1/2 tsp. minced garlic
- 1/2 tsp. pepper
- Pinch of paprika
- 1 (12oz) can of beer
Begin by slicing up in the onion into wedges and then separating each wedge.
Place the onions, brats, and garlic, pepper and paprika into a large stockpot. Top with beer.
Bring to a slow boil, and then reduce to a simmer. Simmer for 15-30 minutes, covered. Rotate the brats once during simmering.
Remove from the pan and rinse any foam off the brats as needed.
Place the brats on a grill that has been heated to medium. Cook the brats on medium heat for 10-12 minutes, rotating 2-3 times during the grilling. Cook until the skin is nicely browned and the internal temperature of the brats crosses 170 degrees (for pork-based brats).
Meanwhile, keep simmering the onions until they are nice and caramelized. Serve atop the brats.
Serve warm and enjoy!
