Cream-Braised Brussels Sprouts

Pugged

"Brussels sprouts tend to turn people off. This way of cooking them brings out their nutty flavor and has made the most passionate haters at my last Thanksgiving say, at the very least, that this is the best brussels sprouts have tasted. The first time I made this, it ended up being dinner - not a side dish!"

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Melt the butter in skillet over medium-high heat. Add the Brussels sprouts and salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the sprouts are browned in spots, about 5 minutes.
  2. Pour in the cream, and bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer until the sprouts are tender and easily pierced with a fork, 30 to 35 minutes. The cream will have reduced in volume, and will have taken on a creamy beige color. Remove the lid, and stir in the lemon juice. Allow the sprouts to simmer a few minutes more until the cream thickens and coats the sprouts. Season to taste with additional salt and lemon juice before serving.

My kids liked it, even the one who doesn't care for veggies, but I thought the sprouts were way overcooked. I made per the recipe and added garlic to the butter. I tasted prior to adding the cre...

Oddly, Sprouts and spinach were the only vegetables my mother could get me to eat. Often considered one of the most disliked of vegetables, Sprouts are full of vitamins, inexpensive when bought ...

This recipe was amazing! They were even better as leftovers after they had marinated in the cream over night!!!

If I could go higher than five stars, I would. I already enjoy brussels sprouts so I was not looking for a recipe that would make me like them, but this one enforced that "aaaaah" feeling. I m...

I love brussel sprouts and this recipe was wonderful. I would make some adjustments to it next time. Unless your sprouts are the size of baseballs, I would halve them not quarter them. They seem...

This was a terrific side dish with fish. I followed the recipe, but got sidetracked (darn kids) toward the end. I caught these just before the burned. My sauce basically carmelized onto the spro...

This recipe is very rich - to say the least. My husband loved it. I prefer a fresher tasting sprout, not one that tastes like it is clogging my arteries and making my but big. That's what pota...

Wow...hands down the best Brussels sprouts recipe I have ever made. The creamy saucy over the sprouts was delectable.

OMG! Best brussels sprouts I ever had (and I love them just steamed with butter anyway). I also have a special place in my heart (and my recipe box) for recipes with 5 ingredients or less. Th...
