Brats in Beer

2 pounds bratwurst (about 10 links)

2 cups sauerkraut, drained

1 12-ounce bottle or can of beer

1 green bell pepper, cut into short


1 onion, thinly sliced

4 tablespoons ( stick) butter or

vegetable oil, optional

10 crusty sausage or steak rolls

cup coarse German mustard

Turn grill on medium and let rack heat for about 10

minutes. Brush and oil rack, then grill brats until nicely

browned all over, turning now and then, 15 to 20 minutes

total. Put brats in a large disposable aluminum pan

directly on grill. Mix in kraut, beer, bell pepper, onion,

and butter or oil, if using. Stew in pan on the grill, mixing

occasionally, for 30 minutes or up to 3 hours (if using a

charcoal grill, add fresh coals every hour or so). Serve on

rolls with steaming slew of kraut, peppers, onions, and

thick band of mustard.

Yield: 10 brats
