Yields 4 servings/Time 60 minutes

A delicious meal doesn’t have to be complicated- sometimes all you need is your meat of choice, a couple of veggies, and less than 60 minutes. For this recipe you’ll use beer to braise your favorite sausage –we recommend our spicy Brooklyn sausage — and finish everything on the grill. Serve in a bun, over rice, or simply top with mustard to keep it low carb.  Easily scale the recipe up for a crowd by simply adding more sausages to the braising liquid. For variations on a theme, try out our different sausage options like sweet Italian, andouille, or merguez.

You will need:

1 package sausage (Brooklyn works especially well)
24 oz beer (something light like a pilsner or lager, nothing too hoppy or dark)
3 bell peppers, cut into strips
1 yellow onion, cut into strips
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and Pepper

  • Preheat oven to 325. In a large dutch oven, place sausages and add the beer. Bring to a boil on the stove top, reduce heat, cover and braise in the oven 30 minutes. Set sausages aside.
  • Preheat a grill until temperature gauge reads 350. Put peppers, onions, olive oil and good sprinkle of salt and pepper on a sheet of foil. Fold the foil around the peppers and onions to make a sealed package. Place braised sausages and foil packet onto the grill.
  • Grill the sausages about 5-6 minutes on each side until nicely marked with grill marks. Serve sausages with cooked peppers and onions.
