  • Outdoor Grill or Indoor Grill Pan
  • A medium-sized pot


  • 6 Bratwursts
  • 1 ½ Cup Beer
  • 1 Medium Onion Sliced
  • ½ tbsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tbsp Red Chilli Flakes
  • ¼ tbsp Black Pepper
  • ½ tbsp Salt


  • Put your brats in a pot that comfortably holds them and add equal parts beer and cold water until the liquid covers the brats completely.
  • Slice your onions into large sections and toss them in, turning the heat on your stove to high to bring the pot to a boil.
  • Don’t let them boil very long, as our goal is to gently simmer your brats in beer. After it begins to boil turn the heat down to a very low boil and let it simmer for about 20 minutes.
  • After they’ve simmered, you’ll have several options as far as how to finish off your brats. You can choose to grill the brats or serve them with sides.
  • You can also finish off your brats in a pan or even put them in a cast iron bratwurst cooker and cook over a fireplace or camp fire!
