Spring Recipe for Bratwurst and Beer
Sorry, this sudden warm weather has got me craving a BBQ recipe. I can almost smell spring in the air. I can’t wait to fire up the grill and get back out on the deck. One of my all time favorite back patio party features is Brats and Beer. Once you’ve tried this it will become a mandatory item for every BBQ party.
Not everybody wants to eat at the same time and usually it’s the guys drinking beer and ranting about work. So here is a easy and tasty fix.
You will need:
- Aluminum roasting pan and a tin foil lid. (or a camping dish works)
- One bottle of beer
- one – three jalapenos (your call)
- one onion
- one pkg of Bratwurst
- A hot grill
Clean, de-steem and de-seed the jalapenos. Cut into long strips. Cut off the top and bottom of the onion, removed the skin then cut from the center out all the way around the onion, creating the same long strips as you did with the jalapeno. Throw the jalapenos and onions in your pan with the brats. Add one beer. Cover and place on the back corner of your grill. Continue to BBQ and forget about the brats for awhile. You made need to turn the brats once but basically you’re waiting for the beer, onions and jalapenos to caramelize. Once they have caramelized they are done but if the guys are still talking and not ready to eat yet, you can just grab the nearest beer and add some more moisture. If it seems like it’s going to be awhile, add another whole beer. Maybe just a quarter of a beer if your starting to get hungry for something thats sweet, spicy and meaty!
(This recipe is for 5 brats. Double all ingredients for 10, double again for 20. I think you get it from there.)
