For many, St. Patrick’s Day is another opportunity to feast and drink, and for others it sparks a traumatic case of pinchophobia because of the lack of green in their closets. As much as I would like to help little Johnny avoid the onslaught of pinches, this article is about a grill, a little beer, and some really good food to celebrate the day. Here is Beer & Butter Grilled Bratwurst, a pub-inspired handful of goodness to get you hailing the luck of the Irish.
Begin with bratwurst links of about 1.5lbs each, and grill them over medium-high heat until thoroughly cooked. Concurrently, sauté onions and peppers in butter, beer, and seasoning blend until tender. Once cooked, add bratwurst to skillet and simmer for 20 minutes. The sweet and tangy mustard sauce is a combination of butter, beef bouillon, egg yolks, sugar, mustard, cider vinegar, and salt. Serve bratwurst on toasted hoagie rolls, topped with veggies and special mustard sauce for a fantastic fistful of flavor. Make this a St. Patrick’s Day to remember with Beer & Butter Grilled Bratwurst, and for the love of Pat, buy little Johnny a green shirt!
