Grilled Beer-cooked Sausages

James Bullard simmers his sausages in beer first, which makes for quick grilling and helps feed guests fast. We love these smeared with coarse-grain mustard on crusty rolls. The onions take on a lot of the ale's flavor, including its slight bitterness. Leave them off your sausage if you're sensitive to bitter flavors.

  • Yield: Makes 12 servings
  • Total:40 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 6 bottles (12 oz. each) medium- to heavy-bodied ale (9 cups)
  • 12 bratwurst
  • 1 large onion, halved lengthwise and sliced crosswise

Preparation

1. Bring beer to a boil in a large, wide pot. Add sausages and onions and simmer 15 minutes. Cover, remove from heat, and let sit until ready to grill.

2. Heat a gas or charcoal grill to medium (you can hold your hand 1 to 2 in. above the cooking grate only 4 to 5 seconds). Using tongs or a slotted spoon, transfer sausages to the grill. Cook sausages, turning once, until browned on both sides, about 8 minutes. Meanwhile, drain onions and set aside. Serve sausages hot or warm, with onions if you like.

Note: Nutritional analysis is per serving.

Note:

You can add up to 8 more sausages without increasing the amount of beer or onion.
