Full Answer

Brats can be boiled in water, beer, stock or wine. This technique is used before grilling brats to prevent them from cooking unevenly. Adding vegetables, such as onions, garlic and peppers, herbs and spices to the liquid infuses different flavors into the meat. Other methods for cooking brats include steaming in a covered skillet, broiling in the oven or grilling without parboiling over medium-low heat.
