shared at the event by Joelen
8 links original bratwurst
3 (16-ounce) bottles beer
whole grain mustard to taste
2 large onions, thinly sliced
1/2 cup thinly sliced red bell peppers
1/2 cup thinly sliced green bell peppers
1/2 cup thinly sliced yellow bell peppers
1/4 cup minced garlic
salt and black pepper to taste
granulated garlic to taste
8 toasted hot dog buns
Prepare grill for medium-high heat. In a large saucepan, combine bratwurst, beer, onions, bell peppers and minced garlic over high heat. Add just enough water to cover sausages if necessary. Bring to a rolling boil then reduce to simmer and cook 15-20 minutes. Remove sausages from pot and place on grill. Cook 5 minutes, browning evenly on all sides. Set aside and keep warm. Continue simmering sauce until reduced by half then season to taste with salt, pepper and granulated garlic. Serve grilled brats on toasted hot dog buns and top with onions, bell peppers and mustard.
