Root Beer Brats
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Cook:6 hours
Wow !! GREAT flavor!! My 93-year-old dad who usually likes semi-spicy foods thought it was a little too spicy. I used just plain brats. However, I, who do not like Thai "spicy" foods really enjoyed this recipe! Could not really taste the root beer. However, it probably gave the brats a dark-color look (almost like moose meat). I found the resulting taste very flavorful. I used a popular Thai sweet chili sauce. Yes, you notice the heat a little, it kept you awake while eating it -- you do not doze off when eating this; but NOT over-powering heat at all. Really, really flavorful taste. I will do this again without reservation. I used just a touch of mustard on the final brat, and spooned just a little of the sauce inside the bun before serving. I used just half of a red onion. Yes, low-heat cook for 7 hours.
