How to Make Slow Cooker Brats

Gather Ingredients


Gather ingredients needed for the recipe.

Prep aromatics

Slice onion slices into half moons and smash garlic. Place both into the bottom of the slow cooker.


 Brown brats

Before we cook the bratwurst in crockpot, we’re going to brown them to help lock in flavor. Heat for 1-2 minutes per side in a frying pan over medium-high heat, just until browned. They don’t need to be cooked through. Place brats in slow cooker.


Make beer sauce


In a small bowl or 2-cup measuring cup, mix together the beer, mustard, and caraway seeds. Pour over brats.
