Beer Braised Bratwurst and Onions

How to cook Beer Braised Bratwurst and Onions:

Beer Braised Bratwurst and Onions


  • 5 Bratwurst sausages
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil divided
  • 2 large onions thinly sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 12 ounces beer
  • 1 tablespoon garlic minced
  • 5 buns
  • 1/2 cup stone-ground mustard to top bratwurst


  1. In a heavy bottom skillet, heat cooking oil over medium-high heat. Add in bratwurst and cook until outside of brats are browned, about 3-4 minutes per side. Remove from pan and set aside.
  2. Add in remaining cooking oil and onion slices. Season with salt and pepper and let cook for about 7-8 minutes, until onions have softened and turned more golden.
  3. Add in minced garlic and let sauté for another minute.
  4. Pour in about 12 ounces of beer. Add in bratwurst and let the mixture come to a simmer. Drop the heat to medium-low and let simmer for about 8-10 more minutes, until the onion mixture thickens up a bit and the brats are cooked through.
  5. Serve on a toasted bun with stone-ground mustard.
