  1. Melt butter with olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Saute onion and garlic in butter mixture until translucent, 5 to 7 minutes; add Brussels sprouts and saute until slightly browned on edges, 5 to 10 minutes. Sprinkle bacon, chicken bouillon, red pepper flakes, and black pepper over the sprouts mixture; stir and cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes.
  2. Pour wine over the sprouts mixture, reduce heat to low, place a lid on the pot, and simmer until the sprouts are desired tenderness, 10 to 15 minutes.

I was not a fan of Brussels Sprouts but this recipe was AWESOME. I substituted "Dry Vermouth" for the Chardonnay and is did wonders.

A pretty good and different take on brussels sprouts. I didn't have chardonnay on hand, so I went with a sauvignon blanc.
