Glazed Carrots and Brussels Sprouts


I made this recipe for my mother's birthday over 20 years ago. Everyone loved the Brussels sprouts! Then I lost the recipe. Recently as I was going through my mother's recipe cards, I found the copy I made for her. I had forgotten what an attractive dish this is. It is as good as I remember and best of all, it still gets rave reviews!

  • 1 ⅔ pounds Brussels sprouts, trimmed

  • 1 pound carrots, cut into 1-inch pieces

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 2 tablespoons chopped onion

  • 1 (10.5 ounce) can condensed beef consomme (such as Campbell's®)

  • cup apple juice

  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch

  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice

  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar

  • 2 pinches ground cloves, or to taste


  1. Fill a large pot 3/4 full of water and bring to a rolling boil. Add Brussels sprouts and carrots, bring back to a boil, and cook vegetables until tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain.

  2. Heat butter in a saucepan over medium heat; cook and stir onion in the melted butter until tender, about 5 minutes. Add beef consomme, apple juice, cornstarch, lemon juice, brown sugar, and cloves. Cook, stirring often, until sauce is thickened, about 5 minutes. Fold Brussels sprouts and carrots into sauce.

Cook's Note:

If Brussels sprouts are large, score an X into each stem.

Two 10-ounce packages of frozen Brussels sprouts may be used instead of fresh.
Baby carrots may be used instead of cut carrots.
