- Large package of Brats
- 12oz can of beer of your choice
- 2 Large white onions-cut into long slices
- 4 cleaned, sliced peppers (green, red, yellow, orange-mixture)
- *Jalapenos, diced or sliced (optional)
- Fill 1/4 of large pot with water.
- Add the can of beer to the pot of water.
- Turn stove to HIGH heat.
- Add 1 sliced onion to the pot of water & beer.
- Poke several holes in each brat.
- Place brats into pot of water, beer & onion.
- Boil brats for about 45 minutes.
- Meanwhile, add the other cut onion, peppers & jalapenos (optional) to a baking dish (large casserole dish, large foil pan, or something similar.)
- Remove brats from the pot and grill for about 15 minutes or until you get your desired brownness/doneness. *BE CAREFUL not to burn the brats, for the juice may cause the grill to flame up.
- Meanwhile, take the water, beer & onions juice into the baking dish and place on the grill.
- Add the grilled brats to the baking dish on the grill and cook the brat mixture for about 45 minutes to an hour, or until the onions and peppers get to the desired softness (crispy, limp etc.)
- Place the brats into buns and add the pepper/onion/jalapeno mixture.
Brats with grilled mixture is delicious by itself, but feel free to mix it up by adding your choice of toppings such as, mozzarella, mustard, pickle relish, ketchup, etc...
