Sandra Lee's Wisconsin Beef & Cheddar Brats With Beer-Braised Onions
Excerpt From 'Semi-Homemade Grilling 2'
Set up grill for direct cooking over high heat. Oil grate when ready to start cooking.
Place cast-iron skillet on grill and add butter. When butter has melted, add onions. Cook about 10 minutes or until onions are softened. Add beer and cover; cook an additional 10 minutes. Remove cover from skillet and let onion mixture simmer.
If using a gas grill, turn heat down to medium (if using charcoal, it will probably be about medium at this point).
Place cheddar bratwurst links on hot, oiled grill and cook 16 to 20 minutes, turning every few minutes. Remove from grill.
To serve, place two hot cheddar bratwurst links on each toasted roll. Smother cheddar bratwurst links with onions and top with cheddar cheese and mustard.
In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add sausages and brown 10 minutes, turning them occasionally as they brown. Remove the sausages and set aside.
Add the onions and cook for 10 minutes, stirring frequently until softened. Pour beer over onions and scrape up any brown bits in the bottom of the skillet.
Return the sausages to the skillet and cook over medium heat about 15 minutes or until beer has almost evaporated. Serve as directed.
