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?
