FOR THE BRATS
- 4 bratwurst sausages
- 1/2 lager beer
- 4 hoagie rolls

FOR THE CARAMALIZED ONIONS

Pour half of the beer in a highball glass. Using a marinade injector, inject approximately 1 ounce of beer into each brat by inserting the injector lengthwise into the sausage.
In a saucepan, saute the onions with 2 tablespoons of butter until golden brown. Add the brown sugar, balsamic vinegar, oregano, salt, pepper and half of the beer. Simmer for 5 to 10 minutes and reduce.
While the caramelized onions simmer, add brats to grill. Grill 3 to 4 minutes on each side.
Serve brats in hoagie rolls with caramelized onions and mustard.
