Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

You can substitute beef for the veal but unless you are making it by the ton, it is not worth the compromise. The recipe is based on a total of one pound of meat. You can work out the ratio for larger quantites.

    <p />ShortRib,
    I like beer brats.[p]In a big skillet melt butter and add some onion, cook a little bit then add brats and beer. Simmer for about 30 minutes or until done. Move skillet off the fire, keep beer in the skillet, put the brats on the grate to brown up and get some grill marks going. Then put the brats back in the beer bath to keep juicy and looking good. Re-heat everything over the fire and then the brats are ready for the bun. Mighty gooood.

  • ShortRib,
    Are you wanting to make them from scratch or just cook already made ones?
