"This recipe is very easy and makes delicious bratwurst. My guests always ask for these during football season. You won't be able to get enough onions and peppers in the slow cooker because every time we make them, we run out! This recipe is for 10. If you have a very large slow cooker, you can get 15 in, but most can only hold 10 (you may need another slow cooker if making more)."

I subitted this recipe. It will take a lot more than 12 oz of beer. I usually end up with at least 4 beers to cover. Not sure why it was changed to 12 oz.
These were alright. They were fast and easy to make in my crockpot. They weren't anything special though so I'm not sure if id make them again. The brauts were so tender from cooking that it was sort of an odd texture eating them because you expect that snap from regular brauts.
Being raised with two very German parents, I was forced to eat bratwurst quite often. I really disliked it, so now I never go near it, BUT, my Scottish hubby and my kids all love the stuff, therefore, I make it several times a year. Even if I don't like what I'm making, I always taste before serving and I must admit that this was really delicious!! I did the opposite of what the recipe stated; instead of grilling the sausage after coming out of the slow cooker, I grilled the brats before. I used a lot of peppers and added more beer. The sauce was very tastey and the bratwurst was amazingly tender and REALLY flavorful. The family loved this recipe and I thank you!
This is one of the best brat recipes I've come across. Everyone who I served this recipe to loved it. The brats come out so tender! I cook this on low in the crockpot for approx. 7 hours instead of the 4-5 hours the recipe recommends to get them extra tender. They're great right out of the pot, no grilling is needed afterward, if it isn't convenient during inclement weather.
yum, yum, yum!!!!!
I made this for the folks at work for a German themed meal. They LOVED it! I could not locate any honey mustard bbq sauce, so I just purchased honey bbq and added a little spicy mustard. I will definitely be making this for a football party or tailgating! Thank you! GREAT recipe!
Pretty good. We have 3'foot snow drifts, so we couldn't grill outside. Instead, I pan grilled the brats on the stove before putting them in the crock pot. I used nearly 4, 12 oz cans of bear and added sourkraut to the onions and peppers. Liked the liquid smoke flavor.
These are the best brats! We normally par-boil our brats in beer and then grill them. But if we have the time, this is what we do now! They are so tender and yummy! I make them in our Nesco cooker, which can fit up to 20 brats. The more peppers the better! We've served these at a few family functions and even the people who don't usually like brats went back for seconds.
I thought these turned out really good. What I liked most was how easy it was to make. The addition of the bbq sauce was great. The house did smell good while it was cooking. I also skipped the red bell pepper as I didn't have any and used two green instead. I added more garlic than called for as I do with most dishes. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
