Ingredients
  • 6 cups German light ale
  • 1 tablespoon caraway seeds
  • 1 tablespoon coriander seeds
  • 1 tablespoon mustard seeds
  • 3 large onions, unpeeled, roughly chopped
  • 2 whole cloves garlic, smashed
  • One 3-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and chopped
  • 3 pounds precooked bratwurst, pricked with a fork
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
Directions

Preheat the grill for direct grilling, high heat.

Combine the beer, caraway, coriander, mustard seeds, onions, garlic and ginger in a large stockpot. Then, add the bratwurst. Place the pot on the grates of the grill and bring to a simmer. Simmer the sausages until half-cooked, about 5 minutes. Remove the pan from the grill and let the bratwurst sit in the liquid for 30 minutes. Transfer the brats to a platter or cutting board and strain the liquid into a bowl, discard the solids.

Brush the sausages with canola oil and grill until the casings are crisp and golden brown and the sausages are cooked through, 4 to 6 minutes per side. Keep warm until serving.
