    Servings and Ingredients

    Ingredients
    Serves 5
    QuantityIngredientAdd
    1 (19.76-oz.) pkg. Hy-Vee original brats
    1 yellow onion, halved and thinly sliced
    1 ½ tsp. whole caraway seeds
    1 tsp. Hy-Vee coarsely ground black pepper
    3 (12-oz. each) bottles lager beer
    1 tbsp. Hy-Vee unsalted butter
    5 Hy-Vee Bakery brat buns, split
    Hy-Vee stone-ground mustard, optional

    Things To Grab

    • Toothpick
    • Saucepan
    • Meat thermometer
    • Charcoal or gas grill

    Directions

    1. Using a toothpick, pierce casing on each brat several times. Place brats, onions, caraway seed, and pepper in a large saucepan. Slowly pour in beer. Stir to combine. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer for 25 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 180 degrees. Drain. Reserve onions.

    2. Preheat a charcoal or gas grill to medium-high heat. Melt butter in a disposable foil pan over medium-hot coals. Add onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are golden brown, about 10 minutes.

    3. Grill brats over medium-hot coats for 5 to 7 minutes to crisp the skin, turning frequently. If desired, lightly grill the buns.

    4. Place brats in toasted buns. Top with grilled onions. Slather with stone-ground mustard, if desired.
