1 Yellow Pepper substitute a red or green as you like
12ozBeer we used an IPA, divided
Salt and Pepper to taste
Slice the onion and peppers. Add butter to the skillet and turn to medium high heat.
Add the onions and peppers to the skillet and cook for 10-12 minutes until they are caramelized and turning brown on the edges. Resist the temptation to move the onions and peppers too much during this process.
Once they are toasty brown, pour in 4 oz of beer, stir, and allow it to evaporate. This took me about 5-6 minutes.
Marinade the brats in 8 oz of beer in a Ziplock bag for 30 minutes.
Heat the Air Fryer to 360 degrees and add the brats.
Remove the beer brats after 11-15 minutes. Turn them half way to make sure they are browning all the way around.
Place them in buns and layer with pepper/onion mixture, plain mustard or sauerkraut.
**Nutritional facts only include brats and onion/pepper/beer mixture and not a bun or sauerkraut. Each Air Fryer cooks different and you need to gauge your own when cooking anything new. That is the reason I always give a range of times. Check early and often. You can also make these "bun less" and just eat them straight with the toppings. Put bread under the brats so that if they drip juice it will soak up the grease. Or use parchment paper for the air fryer as well if you want. You can soak your Beer Brats a longer time in the beer if you would like. I just did a short marinade to help create a fast dinner idea. Make sure to batch cook if you are cooking up a bunch of brats, that way you get an even cook across the brats. You can use any brand of beer, I just recommend using an ale style beer. As a stout beer might overpower the flavor of the brats. Dress up your brats with any toppings you want, you can skip the peppers and onions if you would like.
