Fixed this last weekend for a family reunion so I ended up tripling the ingredients. I fixed it over my gas grill, so I briefly grilled the brats before adding them to the water. Instead of adding the lemon, I just added 1 tbls of juice so it didn't overwhelmed. We all loved it, though it is a bit messing. Lay down several layers of newspapers and have a large stack of napkins and paper towels. Great for outdoor feasts but I would caution serving this indoors.
This one is a man-pleaser. Takes some time though - probably an hour for me from starting the brats to finishing everything. Others have mentioned the smell and I didn't notice it so much while it was cooking but there was definitely an odor that hung around the house for a couple days. The recipe didn't say what to do with the cooking liquid at the end so I checked some other recipes and found you are supposed to drain it off. Seemed like a waste to dump all that beer and seasoning down the drain. Next time I might get a taste of it and see if it would be good on the side with bread dipped in it.
Great comfort food that reminded me of home! I added an extra bottle of beer (used pale ale - all I had)... Never skimp on beer in a boil like this. :) Also, to save time, I broiled the brats in the oven. The only thing I would change is to not cook the lemons in the boil. I might add the juice from one SMALL lemon (or omit all together), but cooking the lemons in the pot saturated the onions with the lemon flavor. They tasted terrible - we couldn't eat them.. Onions are a MUST with the beer brats, so it was a disappointment to not be abel to eat them. In my opinion, save your lemons for on the table! Otherwise this was a great recipe!!
I have had this on many occasions, but this version was the best. I added an extra beer and a little more Old Bay. It is delicious leftover, too! Serving melted butter and lemon on the side was a winner!
Will definitely make this again! Added a head of garlic,a couple of jalapenos, and a few sprigs of fresh thyme to the water and beer. It added even more flavor and spice. Thank you for a great boil recipe. Will add mussels or crab next time too.
This smelled not so great, but tasted WONDERFUL. A great meal for friends at the beach house. We just followed the recipe.... THANKS.
Superb! I used Jalapeno smoked sausage and everything turned out perfect! I have found a new boil recipe! Myself and 2 men ate until we could eat no more and there was still food left over! This is a quick and so easy favorite of mine now!!! Thank you!
i added 1 more beer and 4 more cups of water. doubled the shrimp to 2 lbs (because we already had it fresh off the boat). timed it just as called for and it turned out great. served it to 5 friends and everyone thought it was great
