Caramelized Brussels Sprouts

Brussel sprout haters will be sure to change their mind after enjoying this fantastic dish.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Cut off the brown ends of the brussels sprouts and pull off any yellow outer leaves. Cut them in half. Slice a medium onion in to long strips.
  2. Coat the bottom of your skillet with olive oil and set on medium-high heat.
  3. Add onions and brussels sprouts and stir. Make sure to coat as much of the vegetables as possible. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Garlic is great in this as well.
  4. Constantly stir sprouts and onions to avoid burning.
  5. Brussels sprouts will wilt and leaves will turn black and brown this is a good thing.
  6. Continue to cook and stir veggies until onions are clear and sprouts are soft.
  7. Serve hot. No butter needed!

I chop up my brussels sprouts in the food processor. They cook faster, brown more, and my family--former haters--love them!

I absolutely loved this recipe! Even my husband, who hates brussels sprouts, said they were tolerable to eat this way! Major victory!! I will definitely be throwing this recipe into the mix. Next time, I would like to try a little bit of Mrs. Dash too.

I really enjoy making and eating this dish. One thing I do a little differently is, I place all the sprouts in the pan flat (cut) side down then put a lid on and cook them that way. The flat part gets nice and crispy. Leaving a lid on helps soften the rest of the sprout. I hated sprouts until I found this method of cooking them.
The best way I find to eat Brussels sprouts is roasting and I've done it a couple of ways with olive oil and vanilla bean and the other olive oil with a onion and a little panchetta (?spell) they get crispy not mushy and delish but that is THE only way I will eat them lol

Brussels sprouts are also good on the grill

This is one of my favorite veggie recipes ever - I actually never tried it with onion before, will give it a shot. I also use way less olive oil (just enough to moisten the sprouts) - but that's just my personal taste :)

Absolutely yes! just go a little lighter on the oil. You can "oil masssage" with hands to coat and cover and use less oil in pan. A cast iron works well. I would use the oven as someone suggested. Maybe cook the onions separate & add in later.
Very quick to make and flavorful, this is a keeper!
