Hofbauer Bier Brats

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Difficulty: Level I

  • 12-24 Uncooked brats
  • 6-8 Cans of beer
  • 3 Bay leaves
  • 6 Cloves of garlic
  • 3 Tbsp Salt
  • 3 Tbsp Pepper
  • 4 Medium Sweet Onions - Sliced
  • Sauerkraut
Heat a large stock pot over high heat. Add the sliced onions along and begin to soften. Unpack the brats and pierce several times on each side with a fork and add to the pot. Pour in enought beer to completely cover the brats then add in the rest of the ingredients. Cover and bring to a rolling boil.

Once boiling, turn the heat back down to a simmer and let cook for 30-40 minutes. Preheat the grill over medium heat and add the brats, cook until desired level of crispiness is reached (I like mine with a bit of a crunch).

Serve on a long white roll with sauerkraut and Inglehoffer Hot & Spicy mustard.
