An internet search and some recipe tweaking led me to my new favorite Brussels sprouts. I grabbed the opportunity to make them while JR was watching the Superbowl (he was already yelling at the TV, so I didn't figure yelling about the smelly sprouts would make much of a difference!).
Give it a try and let me know what you think!
Spicy, Salty, Sweet Brussels Sprouts
1 Tbsp. olive oil
3 cloves garlic, crushed
about 25 Brussels sprouts
1 Tbsp. red pepper flakes
1 Tbsp. dark brown sugar
1 Tbsp. basalmic vinegar
1/2 tsp. coarse sea salt
Trim Brussels sprouts, removing outer leaves. Steam for about 10 minutes. While Brussels are steaming, heat garlic in olive oil. Once sprouts are tender, add them to the oil and garlic. Add pepper flakes. Stir and cook for about 3 minutes, until sprouts begin to brown. Add basalmic, sugar, and salt. Stir and cook for another 2 minutes. By then you should have some tasty sprouts!
