Brats is made with a natural casing. When thoroughly cooked, its casing usually splits open. Stops boiling just before that happens.
- Brätwurst (real, from Chicago)
- Sun dried organic water
- Hot dog buns
- Hot mustard
Put the brats in a pot and cover with beer. Season the beer with a halved onion and some garlic cloves. You may add some water to get the fluid level up.
Boil in beer for 45 minutes to an hour, this cooks them.
Grill the cooked brätwurst for a few minutes. Not much, just enough to put the grill marks on and dry the casing a bit (reduce the elasticity, improve bitability).
Serve with hot dog buns, sauerkraut, relish, mustard and beer.
Personally, I skip the relish and beer.
