Slowly cooked brats in beer

Slow cooker beer and garlic brats


2 (19-oz.) pkgs. brats (these I found in the meat section, raw)

1 large white onion, sliced and divided

10 garlic cloves, peeled

¼ tsp. black pepper

¼ C. butter

1 (14-oz) can beer (I used Guinness beer)


1. Add half of the onion in the slow cooker, add the brats in two layers. Add the rest of the onions, garlic, pepper and place the butter on top. Pour the beer into the slow cooker.

2. Cover and cook on low for six hours without opening the lid during the cooking time. Serve the brats, garlic and onions on buns topped with desired toppings.
