We love Brussels sprouts at my house, especially with lamb. This is a great do-ahead recipe.

  • In a separate saucepan large enough to hold the Brussels Sprouts, melt the butter and cook the onion until browned. Remove saucepan from heat, and stir in the flour until smooth. Return saucepan to low heat, and continue stirring until flour is lightly browned. Gradually blend in the beef broth. Season with salt, pepper, and cloves. Stir in the brown sugar and lemon juice. Place the cooked Brussels sprouts in the mixture, and allow to simmer 5 minutes before serving.

One word YUMMY! This recipe was surprisingly easy and the end results were outstanding. Everyone in the family loved them (even the kids). They were more sweet than sour but that was just fine with us. I will make these again and again! Thanks so much Marilyn! Read More

Didn't hit the spot for either myself or my husband and I'm a huge brussel sprout lover. I'll keep looking for something different rather than just tossing them in butter but I don't think this will be it for us we weren't crazy about the flavor. Thanks anyways! Read More

Very good. I was not sure if I would like it but it went very well with Pork Tenderloin in Bourbon from this site. I did not add the onions because I am not fond of them but otherwise I followed the directions exactly. Read More

Very different and unique flavor. I liked this one so well I sent it on to friends! The tip about the flour was useful and I cut back on that. This recipe is a keeper. Hint: They are even better the next day! Read More

I would give this 3 and a half stars if I could. I was expecting a darker thicker sauce. Maybe had I not used red onions it would've been darker. The sauce was alright just wasn't as rich as I had hoped. These were still good and a nice change from the garlic sprouts I usually make. Read More
