I’m not going to lie. I was skeptical when my sister told me about Slow Cooker Beer Brats. I’m not a fan of beer and the thought of cooking a brat in it didn’t sound too good.
But she said they turn out so flavorful – not tasting like beer, but just so good. The fact that they cook in the slow cooker was a plus for me too. I love a good slow cooker recipe!
So I tried them and my sister was right. You’ve got to make these!
We topped them with ketchup, mustard, diced onion, mild banana peppers. I was out of relish or we would have added that too. These brats can handle a lot of toppings.
One thing that surprised me is how the brats browed during the cook time. I didn’t expect that since they were cooking partially submerged in the beer.
This recipe couldn’t be easier since it has only two basic ingredients. This is summer cooking at its simplest – 2-minute prep, the slow cooker doesn’t heat up your house, go have fun while it cooks – my kind of recipe!
