Garlicky Brussels Sprouts Sauté

Garlicky Brussels Sprouts Sauté

Serves 6

30 minutes or fewer

Even people who don’t like Brussels sprouts will eat—and enjoy—this fast dish with a tender crunch. Pre-peeled garlic cloves from the produce section make this recipe even quicker.
  • 1 lb. Brussels sprouts, ends trimmed
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • 12 cloves garlic, peeled and quartered lengthwise
  • 1 Tbs. brown sugar
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ⅛ tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1 Tbs. apple cider vinegar

1. Place Brussels sprouts in bowl of food processor. Pulse 12 to 15 times, or until shredded.

2. Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Add garlic, and cook 5 to 7 minutes, or until light brown. Increase heat to medium-high, and add shredded Brussels sprouts, brown sugar, salt and pepper. Cook 5 minutes, or until browned, stirring often. Add 1 1/2 cups water, and cook 5 minutes more, or until most of liquid is evaporated. Stir in vinegar, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.

I'm a brussel sprout hater. However all my friends kept saying how good they were. I tried this recipe! I am now a brussel sprout lover. Amazingly good!!!

Whenever someone tells me they don't like brussels sprouts I make this dish and change their mind every time. It's delicious.

This would have been perfect if I hadn't added the water and boiled it down. Pre-water, the shredded sprouts were a beautiful green. I will add more oil and vinegar at this point in the future before serving. After-water, the sprouts turned that over-cooked greyish green almost immediately. Yes, they were softer, but a bit of fresh crunch is more appealing to some. Tasted good with the added sugar. No one knew it was there.

This was an amazing recipe! The Garlic wasn't too much at all, as the large chunks of garlic caramelized and sweetened during cooking. I followed it exactly, except I don't have a food processor, so I quartered the sprouts. Seriously the best Brussels Sprouts I have ever tasted.

This was very good and easy to make. Would make this again and again! I will probably use a little more garlic next time.

Wow - I love garlic but this seems like a lot. Can those of you who made this dish let me know what you think?

This looks good and super simple. - 2009-11-22 09:28:33

This recipe has become a family favorite -- even for those who don't love Brussels sprouts. I did cut down on the garlic quite a bit. We love garlic, but preferred not to use so much and it still tasted fabulous.
