  1. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook bratwurst in hot oil until browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove bratwurst to a plate, reserving drippings in the skillet.
  2. Stir apple and onion slices into the reserved drippings; cook and stir until the onion softens, about 6 minutes. Return bratwurst to the skillet, nestling them into the onion mixture. Pour beer over the sausages; season with salt and pepper.
  3. Bring the beer to a simmer, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook until the the bratwurst is no longer pink in the center, 25 to 30 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:

The brats were tasty, but I'm not sure the apples really added anything. We enjoyed these, but next time I'll skip the apples.

doubled recipe, used less onions, delicious

Great recipe. I made it like it said and was really good.Brats are not one of my favorite meats but using the apples and onions and beer made them not so greasy.

Delicious! Used one apple and 1 bottle of hard apple cider for the beer because that's what I had on hand. Two bottles seemed too much and as it turned out for me, probably could have just use...

I made it exactly as is - and it turned out awesome! Although I did use a lot more brats then it called for (I did twelve). The whole family totally loved it!
