Prep Time:

Cook Time:

10 servings


3cans (12 oz. each) beer,

1container (7 oz.) H-E-B Ready, Fresh, Go!® Diced Sweet Onions,

1/2c. (1 stick) H-E-B Salted Butter,

2pkgs. (5 brats ea.) H-E-B Fresh Brautwursts,

10H-E-B Bakery Hot Dog Buns,

1bottle (8 oz.)H-E-B Ground Brown Mustard,

1jar (32 oz.) H-E-B Harvest Moon™ Sauerkraut, rinsed,


1Combine beer, onion, and butter in a large saucepan and heat on medium low for 30 minutes. Keep on low heat (do not let it boil).

2Heat gas on charcoal grill to 375°F. (You should be able to hold your hand palm down, 2 inches over the grate, for 4 or 5 seconds.) Grill fresh brats—20 to 25 minutes, turning often. Use tongs so as to avoid piercing the brats—grease flare-ups will occur when brats are pierced and result in burned brats.

3Transfer brats to beer sauce and simmer for 15 minutes. Hold brats in warm beer sauce until ready to serve. Place each brat on a bun with brown mustard and sauerkraut and serve.
