Brussel Sprouts (that are better than you think!)

Posted by Corrie

I LOVE brussel sprouts.  Cathie thought I was certifiably crazy until she tried these and now she is a committed brussel sprout lover.
brussels-sproutsBrussel Sprouts(even if you think you don’t like brussel sprouts, try this….SO GOOD!) Serves 4

1 bag (10 oz.) brussel sprouts, stems trimmed and outer leaves removed
Chicken Stock
Olive oil or pam
1 garlic clove, chopped
salt and pepper to taste

Bring chicken stock (enough to cover brussel sprouts) to boil in large saucepan.  Add all of the prepared brussel sprouts to stock and boil until fork tender.  Drain and set aside.

Chop garlic.  Slice brussel sprouts in half (be careful, sprouts will be hot; you can throw them in an ice bath if you prefer, but I usually bystep that part).  Heat 1 TBS olive oil in saute pan over medium heat.

Add sliced brussel sprouts and saute 3 minutes or until a golden brown crust has formed on the flat side of the sprout.  Add garlic in last minute of cooking to avoid burning.

You could also steam the brussel sprouts over chicken broth to preserve more of the vitamins and nutrients, but note that they will have a stronger flavor.

I usually toss the finished sprouts with couscous, sauted grape tomatoes, and a sprinkling of feta cheese.  My favorite dinner! HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!
