Ingredients

For the brats:

  • 1 medium sized onion sliced
  • 1/2 stick butter sliced into chunks
  • 5 to 6 bratwursts
  • 3 bottles of amber ale
  • bratwurst bun toasted
  • mustard
  • sauerkraut
  • red cabbage slaw
  • grilled onions

For the red cabbage slaw:

  • 2 to 3 cups shredded red cabbage
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon brown rice vinegar
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

For the brats:

  • Using a big tin pan (use something that is safe for the grill), combine the onions and butter and place the bratwursts in the pan. Pour the beer over the brats and make sure the brats are submerged.
  • Using your outdoor grill, place the pan on the grill and bring to a boil. Let cook for 20-25 minutes and then remove from the pan and grill each bratwurst for at least 3-5 minutes on each side.
  • Place into a bun and top with mustard, sauerkraut, the red cabbage slaw and some grilled onions if desired. Enjoy!

For the red cabbage slaw:

  • Combine everything together in a medium sized bowl. Taste and adjust any ingredients as needed.
