  1. Place bacon in a large skillet over medium-low heat; cook until just crisp, about 10 minutes. Transfer bacon to a paper towel-lined plate, reserving bacon grease in skillet.
  2. Increase heat to medium-high under skillet; saute Brussels sprouts in the bacon grease until lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Add garlic to Brussels sprouts; saute until garlic is fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes.
  3. Pour chicken stock over Brussels sprouts mixture and cover skillet with a lid; simmer until Brussels sprouts are bright green, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove lid and continue simmering until liquid is evaporated and sprouts are tender, about 5 more minutes.
  4. Remove skillet from heat and stir bacon, butter, vinegar, salt, and pepper into Brussels sprouts mixture until butter is melted.

It was easy but the flavor wasn't all that great. It looked nice and I did make it exactly how it was supposed to be made. I just don't like the flavor.

My husband doesn't like brussel sprouts but he absoultely loved these.

This was good and glad I tried it. Followed the recipe except for Step 2. I just browned the Brussels sprouts and garlic in the oven instead of sauteing them on top of the stove. Thanks Kyle!

Really good. Added some fresh parmesan at the end and it worked well. Love this because it is so easy, no special ingredients and is an amazing way to get kids to eat vegetables...our girls lo...

I skipped the butter and vinegar and added a bit of brown sugar. Instead of doing these on the stove I put them in the oven. Turned out pretty good

I like this recipe because it is so simple and the cook can change the amount of ingredients "to taste" without altering the recipe. I personally LOVE garlic. So I put much more garlic than 1 ...

This was really good. I didn't use all the bacon grease because it seemed like too much. My husband said they tasted like something you get at a restaurant. Will definitely make again!

Delicious! I slightly modified the recipe by sautéing the Brussels sprouts with a chopped onion and I added about half the butter and reduced the amount of vinegar slightly to adjust for the but...

This recipe was delicious! The only modification I made was to add about 1/2 cup of chopped onion. I never cared for Brussels sprouts before, but this will be a regular dish now.
