How to Marinate Bratwurst

Save

Bratwursts are sausages that can contain a variety of different meats such as pork, beef or veal. Also known as brats, the sausages are common during barbecues and outdoor events. Marinating brats in a liquid solution that contains beer and other ingredients gives the sausages a moist texture and rich flavor. After you cook the marinated bratwurst, serve it on a bun with your favorite condiments such as relish, sauerkraut and onions.

Things You'll Need

  • Baking dish
  • Fork
  • 12 oz. beer
  • 2 tbsp. packed brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp. mustard
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • Aluminum foil or clear plastic wrap

Step 1

Place the bratwursts into a baking dish in a single layer. Pierce the each bratwurst with a fork in 2 or 3 different locations.

Step 2

Pour 12 oz. of beer over the brats. Add 2 tbsp. of packed brown sugar, 1 tbsp. mustard and 1 tsp. of chili powder. Stir the ingredients to mix them together to coat the brats.

Step 3

Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil or clear plastic wrap.

Step 4

Store the bratwursts in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours. Marinate them overnight for best results.

Tips & Warnings

  • Add your own seasonings to the marinade to customize it, such as garlic powder, soy sauce, hot pepper sauce or honey.
  • Experiment with different beers until you find one that infuses the brats with the flavor that you prefer.
  • Do not leave bratwurst out at room temperature for longer than 2 hours because bacteria may begin to grow.
