Beer Brats!!! – In honor of Germany April 6, 2010

Filed under: Entree Recipes — celebrationgoddess @ 2:40 am

Now that we’re going to Germany, I will be investigating all the cuisine in anticipation of eating it!

Beer Brat recipe

  • 6 bratwurst sausages
  • 6 cups lager beer
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 2 chopped cloves of garlic
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 green bell pepper, cored and sliced
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 bratwurst buns or hoagie rolls, split lengthwise
  • Mustard


Prick the bratwurst all over with a fork. In a medium pot, combine the bratwurst, beer, garlic, peppers, and the onions. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Simmer for about 1 hour or until bratwurst are firm and cooked through. Transfer the bratwurst to a plate. Reserve some of the cooking liquid.

Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat cook some additional onions and the bell peppers. Cook about 15 minutes or until very soft, tossing occasionally.

Either brown the brats on the grill or add the bratwurst to the skillet in the last 5 minutes of cooking to lightly brown. If the vegetables begin to get too dark, add a few tablespoons of the bratwurst cooking liquid. Season, to taste, with salt and black pepper.

To serve, top with peppers, onions and mustard.

Laugh, learn, and liven up your taste buds!
