Best Brussel Sprouts Ever!

This year on the meal plan, I thought  I would try Brussel sprouts. If I really hated them, I could get something else. Well, they tasted completely bland and oozed the water in which they were steamed. Not too appetizing! This summer I gave them another try with a recipe my mom made up. Now I love them and how they get a little crunchy and balsamic vinegary on the bottom. Yum!

Best Brussel Sprouts Ever – Donna Lindley

  • enough Brussel sprouts to fit in the bottom of your pan
  • olive oil
  • balsamic vinegar
  • salt
  • pepper

Cut sprouts in half. In large skillet, pour enough olive oil to cover the bottom and turn on high. Place sprouts cut side down and season with salt and pepper.  Turn down the heat to medium high and let cook for five minutes or until they turn a deep green. (You want a little bit of burn on the bottom) Add a little more oil and pour in the balsamic vinegar. Lower heat, cover, and let simmer for 10 minutes. Remove lid and turn up heat to medium to let the juices cook out.  Enjoy!
