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!!

    And all this time, I thought I was the only person to love brussel sprouts. I would love to try this recipe, but I have one question. Where do I do the X scoring? On the base?

    Never mind! I just reread it all, and it looks like the scoring happens at the base/bottom. Blonde moment. Need more caffeine!

    I love Brussels sprouts! You can also do them without the boiling step and just go straight to the pan. It gets them nice and crispy. My absolute favorite way though is to cut them in half, toss in olive oil, salt and pepper and roast them in the oven till they’re golden brown. They turn crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside and get a slight sweetness that is to die for.

      Thats how I cook mine too! It keeps them from being soggy, which is why I think a lot of people don’t like brussels sprouts…
      Yumm! If you’re feeling really naughty you can cook them up with rendered bacon fat. O.o

    I love these! But if you add some pistachios after they’re done, you’ll end up with an even more amazing recipe! Give it a try and let me know!

    this sounds delicious. I love brussel sprouts as well (not many people can say this) and this is a nice variation to the traditional boiled sprouts.

    Mm, this looks delicious. I was never a fan of them until I went to Alta in New York. They do the most amazing version of sprouts. Crispy with some fuji apples and creme fraiche, it’s to die for!!
