I like to simmer them in beer and onions, then grill them...tender and very flavorful. I also strain the onions from the beer and add them to fresh ones and caramelize them all before mixing with a little bbq sauce. Makes a great topping with mustard. so good.

i am going to try this. my bil states they are better if you simmer them
in beer first before grilling we have always grilled than simmered.
we have always loved them that way, it is also easy grill them before your
friends arrive put the brats in the beer whenever they want to eat they are still got and hot simmering in the beer.

i am going to try this Sunday

football party go Chiefs

I've only made turkey Brats (available at Whole Foods) for many many years now. If I'm grilling them outside, I just grill them over indirect heat for about 10 minutes, turning occasionally, & then move them over direct heat for another 10 minutes, turning occasionally until brown.

If I'm doing them inside, I simmer them in water, chicken stock, or beer for around 10 minutes, again turning, & after the liquid cooks off, I add some extra-virgin olive oil to the pan & continue sauteing until they're browned & cooked through.

I used to brown them first & then simmer, but found that the simmering removed all of the attributes of the browning.

Anyone eat them with sauerkraut? I like to saute my sauerkraut a bit and eat it with sausages. Mmmmmmm. Never grilled my brats, but will give it a go.

Check out the Johnsonville beer brat hot tub.

I have an indoor grill, and grilled the brats (cheddar/beer flavor, as I recall) with potatoes o'brien (or hash browns), onions and peppers -- and melt a little cheddar on top, and served with corn on the cob. I have a recipe for brats made in apple juice with sauerkraut, that's on the 'to do' list.

I simmer mine in beer and onions and then throw on the grill.

If I am having a large party (which is usually only at my parents house since I don't have a grill) and people will be eating over a period of time I will grill them and then throw them into a tub of warm beer with onions. Then when someone wants a brawt they are already cooked and have stayed warm in the beer bath. That way I won't have to be at the grill the whole time.

I usually grill them. But, I have boiled them in beer with onion, and than broiled them. I love brats and sauerkraout and spicy mustard.

The mistake I most often see with brats and other sausages is cooking them too fast so they burn first and then to get the middle done, you have to overdo them. A brat or other sausage is done at 150 degrees. When cooked past that they break down the fat and become "mealy".

I prefer a slow grilling but I've enjoyed them from the simmering pan too.
