PAN SEARED BRUSSEL SPROUTS

This recipe is my mom’s.  Everyone in my family loves, loves brussel sprouts!!  We eat them all the time.

PAN SEARED BRUSSEL SPROUTS

One pound of brussel sprouts

Olive oil for the skillet

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste.

Peel outer leaves off brussel sprouts, trim the bottoms, then score with an X. (this helps with the bitter taste)  Put brussel sprouts into large pot of boiling water.  Cook until just tender, 3 to 5 minutes, depending on size of brussel sprouts.  Remove from heat and drain.  Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.  Slice brussel sprouts in half, lengthwise.  Add to heated skillet face side down.  Cook until brussel sprouts are nicely browned.  Turn brussel sprouts with spatula, and season with salt and pepper.

Enjoy!!
