Brussels sprouts with browned butter, garlic, and cooked red onions make a great side dish or a meal in itself. Enjoy!

Ingredients

Directions

  • Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil. Add Brussels sprouts; cook until slightly tender, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove and run sprouts under cold water to stop the cooking process. Trim ends off each Brussels sprout and slice sprouts in half.

  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat; arrange Brussels sprouts, cut sides down, in the hot oil. Season with red pepper flakes, salt, and black pepper. Cook Brussels sprouts, keeping them in the same place, until cut sides are browned, 7 to 9 minutes.

  • Mix red onion and garlic into Brussels sprouts; cook and stir mixture until Brussels sprouts are cooked through but still firm, 10 to 13 more minutes.

  • Place butter in a cold saucepan; place saucepan over medium heat. Cook butter until it begins to bubble and foam, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low; cook, constantly stirring, until butter begins to brown, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat and pour browned butter over Brussels sprouts; toss to coat.

I followed the recipe - the Brussels sprouts came out half done and half burned. I'll try again.

A good classic brussell sprouts recipe. I also put about a tablespoon of brown sugar on when I added the seasonings and this works fine with yellow onion too if you happen to be out of red...

6 26 17 While these tasted "fine " they weren't anything special & not worth the time & dishes.

I was a little bit nervous to try this but happy I did! My hubby and I have a new favorite side dish.I used butter flavored Crisco instead of oil and added some fresh mushrooms that I had in the fridge. Yummy!

I wasn't a brussel sprout fan...until now. I needed a quick and easy recipe that was different from the other vegetables that I normally cook. I tried it I loved it and my family loved it! Delicious!

Pretty tasty but I would boil the sprouts for a bit longer because they came out pretty crunchy even after cooking for the maximum time specified in the recipe. I prefer them a bit softer. I also used garlic powder instead of fresh garlic and it still turned out tasty.
