Simple Kitchen: Grill up for
By Errin Stevenson
June 10, 2008 | Grilling is my favorite way to cook
meat in the summer! It is quick, yummy and really easy
to clean up. It also adds the nice, fired flavor to
your meats and you can cook your meat to perfection.
Bratwursts are my husband's favorite meat on the grill.
Although they are not the healthiest choice, they sure
are tasty. After many experiments using recipes from
the Wisconsin beer brat to the smoked bratwurst, my
husband thinks he has found the best recipe. The recipes
special ingredient is apple beer.
Series Bowl Finals Bratwursts
48 oz. of canned of apple beer
1 lg. yellow onion, sliced
3 T. brown sugar
1 apple, chopped thick
6 (1 pkg.) uncooked large Johnsonville or Nathan's bratwursts
6 hoagie buns
In a large kettle or pot, combine apple beer, onion,
brown sugar and bratwursts. Let soak for 12 hours. Once
12 hours has passed, simmer on low heat until steamy.
Once there is steam, remove from heat. Be careful not
to overheat which causes bratwurst casing to burst.
After removing from heat, remove bratwursts. Then remove
onion and put in a small skillet. Cook over medium heat
until medium brown. These onions will be sweet and perfect
on your bratwurst.
Cook bratwursts on grill at medium heat, approximately
10-15 minutes. Be sure not to burst casing.
Once cooked, remove from grill and put on hoagie bun.
Add brown mustard, ketchup, apple onions and bread n'
butter chips (pickles).
These are great for all of the big sporting events;
hence that is why my husband named them the Series Bowl
You can serve them with veggies and it is a full meal!
These will fill you and your guest.
