  • Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add carrots, cover, and steam until tender, 7 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a 9x13-inch baking dish.

  • Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat and stir in brown sugar until dissolved; add brandy, orange juice, and cornstarch. Stirring constantly, bring sauce to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer until thick, about 1 minute. Pour sauce over carrots in baking dish. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until bubbling, about 30 minutes. Garnish with parsley.

Cook's Note:

To make ahead, pour sauce over carrots and let cool; refrigerate until about 1 hour before serving time. Let dish reach room temperature before baking for 30 minutes. You can warm in microwave oven for 5 minutes instead of baking.

7.2.18 Carrots have become my husband’s favorite side dish (the man who wouldn’t touch them when we were first married). I’m always looking for new carrot recipes, and this one’s a winner. The orange flavor is dominant, and it has just a bit of sweetness, but doesn’t overpower. Thanks for sharing your recipe, we loved it! Read More

This balance of sweet and savory is a perfect blend. I included it in two dinners over the holidays. Read More

Mmmmm.... Very good! I made them today for a planned meal for 8 people for tomorrow. I am kinda thinking I should have made 1 1/2 times the recipe or doubled as I have a feeling it will be well liked! Besides delicious it is a beautiful looking dish of carrots in the end. Read More

Made this to take to Christmas dinner at a friend's house. Everyone loved it! One person said that she didn't usually like cooked carrots but really enjoyed these. I have made this dish before and will definitely make again! I did not change the recipe at all. Read More
