Beer Brats and Greens

Sooo, had a DELICIOUS dinner tonight and needed to post it for you all!  Another GREAT way to enjoy your greens!

Beer Brats with Onions and Greens

1 medium onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
12 oz beer
4 bratwurst
lots of greens, chopped

Saute onions in hot oil in large saucepan until tender (about 2 minutes).  Add garlic and heat through. Add brats and brown on both sides.  Pour in beer and bring to simmer.  Reduce heat and cover; simmer gently about 35-40 minutes (watch to make sure the beer doesn't evaporate!  You'll need some to cook the greens in, and your onions will definitely burn if the beer evaporates out).  Add greens and cook until wilted.  Serve immediately.

Soooo good!  We used wheat bread as buns and it was just delicious.  The beer really takes the bite out of arugula.  .. But use a good beer, seriously.  We recommend Fat Tire Ale.  Or Keith does.  He likes it a lot.
