A very good friend whose judgment I trust talked me into making these. I didn't tell her that I turned my nose up at the recipe when I read it. I didn't even like making these, and looked forward even less to eating them. Imagine my taste buds' surprise to find they liked these! Good flavor arises from the caramelization of the onions and brussels sprouts, the little bit of sugar is just enough to eliminate the bitterness brussels sprouts can have, and the roasted, salted pistachios I used were the perfect complement, both in taste and appearance. This just proves what moms like to say, that you should try something before you say you don't like it!
Wonderful and tasty. I used 2 pounds of frozen baby brussels sprouts rather than the 4 pounds called for. I also minced the onion and added 4 cloves of minced garlic. I steamed the sprouts until soft and then let them sit a while before serving to absorb the flavors. Got rave reviews. Thank you.
these were fabulous... I used regular onions and cut the recipe down to about a third of the size (it was just me and my boyfriend eating). The only thing I would change the next time I make this is to break up the leaves or even just cut the brussel sprouts in half. The middle did get a bit tender but with not that much flavor. Opening the sprouts up will allow some of the delicious flavor to get to the center.
By far the best I've ever tasted let alone prepared myself. I used maui sweet onion and pecans instead because I didn't have red onion or pistachios. My husband even liked this recipe and he usually hates brussel sprouts. Deeeelicious!
