  • 6 Bratwurst

Fill a large pot of water halfway with water (for extra flavor use beef broth, optional) and bring to a boil.

Place brats into the boiling water or stock and add the beer, onion, Worcestershire sauce, red wine vinegar and season with black pepper.

Bring the pot to a gentle boil and keep at a gentle boil for 10 minutes. Remove the brats and grill on a preheated indoor or outdoor grill. Cook on both sides until charred.

Place in a warm bun with your favorite condiments.
