Chef Dad’s BBQ Beans

INGREDIENTS:
2 Cans Pinto Beans (drained & rinsed)
¾ Cup BBQ Sauce (your favorite)
¼ Cup ketchup
6-8 Slices bacon (cooked & chopped)
1 Red Bell Pepper (diced)
½ Cup Onion (diced fine)
1 Tbsp. Butter
Salt & Pepper
2 Tbsp. Brown sugar (optional)

COOKING:
1) Sauté bacon until fully cooked.  Remove from pan and chop it up.  You can use that same pan by adding your butter then your diced bell pepper and onion with a few pinches of salt & pepper.  Sauté for about 5-6 minutes.
2) Using a large saucepan, combine beans, bacon, veggies, BBQ sauce, ketchup and brown sugar over medium low heat and bring to a low simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. 

Cooks Notes: If you like a slightly sweeter bean, add the brown sugar shown as an optional ingredient.  This dish can be cooked on your BBQ grill.  The grill method will take about 25-30 minutes, but use an oven proof casserole dish that can be covered.

This recipe serves 6-8 people.


Chef Dad’s Wisconsin Beer Brats

INGREDIENTS:
Bratwurst Sausage Links
1 Quart or 3 Cans of your Favorite Beer*
2 Cups Chicken Stock
2 Cups Water
1 Onion (peeled & quartered)
1 Green Bell Pepper (seeded & rough chopped)
1 Red Bell Pepper (seeded & rough chopped)
2 Garlic Cloves (each one sliced in half)
1 Tbsp. Peppercorns
Hot Dog Buns & Condiments


COOKING:
1) Combine all ingredients except the Brats in a large pot and bring to a boil over medium high heat.  Reduce heat and let simmer for 20 minutes.
2) Heat your grill with outer burners at medium heat and the middle burner on low.  A charcoal grill can be used with the indirect method as well (coals around the perimeter only).
3) Add brats to your pot and bring up to a simmer for 20 minutes.  Do not boil brats.  A low simmer is perfect.
4) Remove brats from pot and put in center of grill. Cook until browned on both sides with nice grill marks.  Remember, low & slow renders the best results.
5) Serve on a fresh, soft hot dog bun with your favorite condiments on the side such as sauerkraut, diced cucumber, onion, relish, mustard, etc.

Cooks Note: *A good domestic beer like Budweiser, Coors, etc. adds a great flavor but won’t dominate the taste like a heavy malt like beer.  When shopping, don’t buy brats that are labeled as “beer brats”.  We want regular bratwurst from the package or butchers department.
