How to Cook a Bratwurst the Right Way

Guten Tag! If you are a fan of German cuisine, then you have most likely tried the classic bratwurst. But do you know how to cook it to perfection? In this blog post, we will teach you the proper way to cook a bratwurst and give you some tips to make it even more delicious.

Firstly, it's important to choose the right type of bratwurst. At, we offer a variety of bratwursts made with different meats and seasonings. You can choose from traditional pork bratwurst, beef bratwurst, or even chicken bratwurst. Whichever one you choose will be even better, cooking as follows!

Now, let's get to the cooking process. Here are the steps to follow:

  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil. You want enough water to fully cover the bratwursts Once the water is boiling, turn down the heat to a simmer and add the bratwursts to the pot. Let them simmer for about 5-10 minutes, you will know they are done with this stage when they float to the top. This will bloat the bratwurst, making it juicier and have the distinct bratwurst crunch on the outer layer and it will keep the sausage hydrated while it is on the grill.
  2. Preheat your grill or frying pan to medium heat.
  3. (optional) you can also beer batter your brat to get good flavor hints but this also keeps the skin from ever cracking while on grill or pan!
  4. Place the bratwursts on the grill or frying pan and cook for about 10-12 minutes, turning them every 3-4 minutes. The bratwursts should be browned on the outside and cooked through on the inside. If you're not sure if they are done, you can use a meat thermometer to check that the internal temperature has reached 160°F (71°C).
  5. If you want to add some extra flavor to your bratwursts, you can add some onions and peppers to the grill or frying pan. Cook them until they are soft and caramelized, then serve them on top of the Bratwursts.

That's it! With these simple steps, you can cook a delicious bratwurst that will impress your friends and family!
