Beer-Simmered Bratwurst

Getting reviews...
"Steaming the bratwurst allows the beer and spices to permeate the meat. You get the crusty exterior from finishing them on the grill," says Bobby.

  1. Preheat a grill to high. Combine the beer, caraway seeds, coriander seeds, mustard seeds, onions, garlic and ginger in a large stockpot. Add the bratwurst. Place the pot on the grates of the grill and bring to a simmer. Simmer the sausages, about 5 minutes.
  2. Remove the pot from the grill and let the bratwurst sit in the liquid for about 30 minutes. Transfer the brats to a platter or cutting board.
  3. Brush the bratwurst with the canola oil and grill until the casings are crisp and golden brown and the brats are warmed through, 4 to 6 minutes per side. Keep warm until serving.
