Beer brats and onions

I've had my egg a couple months and ribs, steaks and salmon keep coming out so good, I haven't done much else!  But last night, did some beer brats and onions.  Used Dr BBQs recipe - stick of butter in a pan with a couple sweet onions.  Get the onions softening/browning while you get some nice grill marks on the brats.  Then pour a beer (or two) into the onions.  Add the brats and cook until most of the beer has evaporated.  Man!  These tasted fantastic!  (sorry for the soft focus - I think it was the adult beverages)

    The frozen fries are getting no love today. They are getting bashed over on another thread.

    One step at a time!  Steak fries properly marinated on the top of a Swing Rack is the next step.  The perfect finish to "meat and potatos".  I've had some Italian sausage languishing in the freezer and may give it a try with them.  Won't use my beloved Eye of the Hawk ale but maybe some Coors.

  • Being from Wisconsin, I know a thing or two about brats and all I have to say is....... =D>
  • @brewcityegger thanks!

    Ain't nothing wrong with some tots as long as he cooked them on the Egg. You did cook them on the Egg, right Chip?

  • @griffin - sure did!  In a foil wrap - and some Dizzy Dust sprinkled on.  But dipping them in the au jus was great!

    Those look great, I do something similar with onions, peppers and sauerkraut.

    Dude that us awesome. New egg owners always think they don't have much to add... I'm doing that when I get home. Might add red peppers.

    Thanks for posting.

    Great looking brats!  What's funny is that recipe is something Steven Raichlen did too...I wonder who was the originator :)   He called it the Beer Bath for Brats or something like that...

  • Nice! What temp?
  • DelucaDeluca Posts: 100
    I'd say in the 400 to 450. Probably about 45 minutes for the beer to evaporate.
