Nothing epitomizes the spirit of Oktoberfest better than beer and bratwurst. Oompa!
1 lb bratwurst
1 bottle beer (your favorite)
3/4 cup beef broth
2 tablespoons butter
1 large yellow onion
1 clove garlic, roughly chopped
1 teaspoon hot sauce
Melt butter in a medium skillet and saute onions and garlic until translucent. Set aside and allow to cool. Combine beer, broth, hot sauce, cooked and cooled onions and garlic in a ziploc bag or plastic container. Add brats and marinade over night. Pour entire contents of bag/container into a large saucepan or pot. Bring mixture to a boil then turn heat down and simmer for 10-15 minutes. Remove brats from beer mixture and grill over medium heat for 5 minutes, turning occasionally to prevent burning. Serve on warm rolls/buns with sauerkraut or grilled onions.
