Brats n Beer w/ Carmelized Onions

Grilled Bratwurst With Onions &amp Beer Recipe


1 package (19.76 oz. size) fresh bratwurst
2 large onions, sliced thinly
3 bottles (12 oz. size) beer (whatever is handy)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon caraway seeds
5 buns or rolls
Mustard to taste

Place the brats, onions, caraway seeds and beer in a pan and heat to boiling. Cover, turn down heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Remove the brats to a covered plate.

Strain the onions into a collander. Turn drained onions into a pan with a little olive oil and slowly cook until well carmelized (about 20 minutes).

Grill brats on low to medium heat for 10 minutes, turning the brats so they are browned on all sides. Serve on your favorite bun. Spread a little mustard and smother brat with the cooked onions.
