German Grilled Bratwurst!

German grilled bratwurst marinated in beer makes up for a great main dish served with sauerkraut.


  •  12 bratwurst
  • 1 to 2 bottles of your favorite beer
  • 1 large onion
  • 1 teaspoon of paprika
  • 1 teaspoon of ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of salt

Preparing German Grilled Bratwurst


Put the sausage in a large casserole. Cut the onion in quarters and than in slices. Mix the beer with the spices and add the cut onion. Bring the marinade to a boil. Cook it on low heat for about 3-5 minutes. Spread cooked marinade over the sausage. Cover the casserole and let the sausage stand in the marinade over night (or at least for two hours) in your refrigerator.


Prepare your charcoal or gas grill until it has reached a medium heat. Apply oil or cooking spray on the grill’s cooking surface. Place sausages on the grill for about 16-20 minutes—turning them evenly from time to time. Place the onions on aluminium foil and have them as well on the outside of your grill for about 5 minutes. Careful not to burn.  Serve them with the German grilled bratwurst and DONE!
