Beer Brats

Beer Brats

Serves 8

Once these brats have simmered in the onion-beer liquid, they can be served as-is or grilled. Top with your favorite fixings.
  • 2 Tbs. vegetable oil
  • 2 small onions, halved and thinly sliced (2 cups)
  • 3 tsp. sugar, divided
  • 1 pt. brown ale
  • ¾ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. ground black pepper
  • 8 vegetarian beer brats or sausages
  • 8 hot dog buns

1. Heat oil in large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onions, and sauté 3 to 5 minutes, or until they soften and begin to brown. Sprinkle with 1 tsp. sugar, and sauté 3 minutes more, or until onions are golden brown.

2. Stir in 1 cup brown ale, scraping up browned bits from bottom of pan. Stir in remaining 1 cup brown ale, remaining 2 tsp. sugar, salt, and pepper, and 2 cups water. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 20 minutes, or until onions are very tender and translucent.

3. Prick sausages with fork. Add to beer mixture, and simmer 10 minutes. Serve immediately, or cool in liquid for more flavor, then reheat or grill. Serve well-drained brats in buns, each topped with 2 Tbs. onions, if desired.

A little more information on the type of veggie sausage would be very much welcome. A brand name that works well with this recipe would be even better since they all seem to cook up differently.

It would be awesome to get a basic veggie sausage recipe...one that doesn't use tempeh or soy! This recipe looks yummy!
