Poached Bratwurst in Beer
This is a super easy recipe that takes very little prep work.

To poach the bratwurst takes about 20-30 minutes. It tastes fantastic, and can be served in many ways, on a bun with trimmings, with Rösti potatoes, with gnocchi or ...... you figure it out.

This recipe is for four people.

Ingredients:
  • 1 tbs of Canola Oil or Butter
  • 2 large onions
  • 1 can / bottle of beer (355 ml)  A darker beer is preferred but not necessary, any kind will do.
  • 4 bratwurst. Go to the local butcher and pick out some special ones.



In a large frying pan, add the canola oil, medium heat. Cut onions in half, length wise. Then slice thin.

Add onions, covering the bottom of the pan and toss in the canola oil for about one - two minutes. Lay the bratwurst on top of the bed of onions and add the beer.

Let simmer over medium heat. Turn the bratwurst every 5 minutes so it cooks from two sides.

Simmer till all the beer is gone. Your done! The onions will be the best onions you ever made!


If you serve the bratwurst on a bun, cut them in half, length wise, add onions and your in heaven.

For the meal I made today I choose to cook some Gnocchi's in Cambozola Sauce to accompany the brats.  This evening though, I did not have any Cambozola so I just added extra Parmigiano as well as some sun dried tomatoes. Anything really goes here.


Wine Pairing:


Black Box Wine  Cabernet Sauvignon
Black Box Wine  Cabernet Sauvignon
You can't really go wrong with any red wine here. Many people prefer and beer or a cider but with our meal I went with a very affordable red wine.

The Black Box Wines..... I know all you wine snobs out there will wrinkle your nose to a boxed wine.  Many people wrinkled their noses at twist off caps as well and they are now very common.

For this meal we used a Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile. This boxed wine is fantastic for the money and the beauty is that once you open the box, it stays fresh for 6 weeks. There are four 750 ml bottles in one box.

For people like ourselves that do a lot of RV'ing and for boaters, these fine boxed wines are so easy to take along. Less weight and space.

Kiss the cook,
