Braised Bratwurst

Bratwurst · Beer · Yellow Mustard · Mayo

Braise — medium — IT 160°F

Crack open a beer for this one. But don’t drink (much of) it. Brown sausages in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium, and carefully pour (what’s left of) that beer into the pan. Simmer, turning the brats occasionally, until the beer is gone for real. If you started with uncooked brats, check for an IT of 165°F before serving. If they need more time, add a little water to the pan and simmer on, while you grab your own beer.   

(When in doubt, add butter and/or salt.)
