August 16th is National Bratwurst Day!

Thanks to Foodimentary I can keep track of all of the crazy food holidays!
Apparently many other people were too since there were no fresh Brats available at Big Y or Stop & Shop today. I had to settle for the Johnsonville Smoked Beef Brats - Not that there is anything wrong with them but I wanted to go original.
1 large onion, sliced
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 Tbsp. sugar
2 Tbsp. German brown mustard
1 can of beer
1 cup chicken stock - I would have preferred beef but chicken was open in the fridge
1/2 Tbsp caraway seeds
1 pkg. Johnsonville® Smoked Beef Brats
Crusty buns(optional)
In a large skillet brown onion, oil, sugar, and mustard over medium heat until onions are tender and almost caramelized. Add beer, broth, caraway seeds and brats - making sure the brats are nearly submerged. Increase heat, cover and cook for 30 minutes. Remove brats, preserving onion mixture. Preheat grill or grill pan (it's raining -my version of grilling when it is wet outside). Grill brats, turning until all sides are brown, for about 10 minutes until done. Serve brats on buns (if using) with reserved onion mixture and your spicy mustard of choosing.
