These Grilled Brats are grilled first and then simmered in a seasoned mix of onions and beer. By grilling them first, the flavors inside the brat concentrate so they can absorb the seasoning without losing their amazing original flavor.

Ingredients

FOR THE BREW VIDE

  • 1 large sweet onion, sliced into wedges
  • 2-3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon roasted garlic paste or 2 cloves minced
  • 2 12-ounce light beer, room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
  • salt to taste

FOR THE BRATS

  • 1 1/4 pounds bratwurst sausages
  • 5 hard rolls or hot dog buns
  • toppings of your choice

Directions

Step 1 Of 6
1
Preheat grill to 300-350°F.
Hot Tip
For best results, make sure grates are clean, preheated and lightly oiled.
2
Rest the brats at room temperature for about 15-20 minutes before grilling.
3
Place onions, butter, garlic, beer, pepper and a few pinches of salt in the steam pan for the brew vide.
4
Place brats on the grill and grill for 20 minutes, flipping them about every 5 minutes. Handle carefully to avoid rupturing the sausage’s casing.
Hot Tip
Use the upper cooking grate if your grill runs a little too hot.
5
Place the steam pan on the grill and set the brats in the steam pan. Close the lid and cook for 20 minutes. The brew vide should start simmering after 5 minutes or so. Don't let it reach a full boil. If it starts to simmer rapidly, reduce the heat immediately.
6
When brats are fully cooked, remove the steam pan from grill. Serve on buns with your favorite toppings.
