Slow cooker beer brats — Foodie Friday
It's not just a Foodie Friday, it's FOOTBALL Friday! Presented by Amalfi's bar and restaurant in Lawrenceville.
Henry, our official Lab Taster, and I have a great tailgate recipe that is perfect for your next game day.
We are going to grill some fresh bratwurst, then layer them in a slow cooker with sliced onions and peppers. Next, we'll pour in a can of Guinness stout beer, and let them cook on low for about 6 hours.
The result is a moist and flavorful brat that travels well, and will be the hit of any tailgate or football party. The trick is to get a brat that has a natural casing, so it retains a firm texture and "snap" when you bite into it.
Serve it on a fresh Portuguese roll with a slice of provolone cheese, and layer on the onions and peppers! A dab of horseradish mustard complements the sweetness and adds a little zing!
Your shopping list is below, then watch the video to see how it's done.
- 15-20 fresh, raw, natural casing bratwurst links (browned on grill)
- 4-6 rainbow sweet peppers (sliced)
- 3-4 medium yellow onions (sliced)
- 1 can Guinness stout beer
