    Julesong's Note:

    So many people think they don't like brussels sprouts - it's sad, because they're such a wonderfully tasty vegetable! I figure they must have had them prepared badly when they were younger, because everybody I fix them for change their minds about them. My latest conquest was my husband, who thought he didn't like them, either. He has since changed his mind, of course.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      If you can, get your brussels sprouts from a store that sells them loose in bins; pick out the smaller, tight sprouts.
    2. 2
      To cook them, clean and trim the sprouts, removing the bottom stem and tougher outside leaves (very important!).
    3. 3
      You've already cut the bottom of the stalk off: now cut an"X" into the bottom of each sprout (about an 1/8 of an inch deep).
    4. 4
      Steam the sprouts for about 20 minutes, until they are soft (everybody prefers theirs in their own way, but I cannot stand crunchy brussels sprouts).
    5. 5
      While the sprouts are steaming, sauté the minced garlic in a little bit of butter for about 3 minutes, then combine them into the rest of the melted butter.
    6. 6
      When spouts are done cooking place them in a serving dish, pour the melted garlic butter over the sprouts, season lightly with salt and pepper, and serve.

      I made these for dinner a couple nights ago with brussel sprouts from my garden. Both of my daughters (who love garlic) wouldn't even try them. :-(( Oh well, their loss. My husband loved them and wants me to make them again. I thought they were a nice change of pace, but probably won't make them very often. An observation my husband made (and I agree) is that the garlic butter really tends to reduce the "strong flavor" natural to brussel sprouts. I'll have to try these out on our son and his fiancée the next time they come for dinner. Our son, like both his parents, loves brussel sprouts. Thanks for sharing Julesong.

      This was my first attempt at both cooking and eating brussel sprouts. They were not as much like cabbage as I thought they would be, cabbage is my fav vege. Anyway, the recipe went down well with hubby. Thanks!

      This was good and easy to make. I used a bag of SteamFresh brussel sprouts and followed the rest of the ingredients as written. Once the brussel sprouts were steamed I added them to the butter/garlic mixture and cooked them on the stove for about five minutes, stirring frequently. Nice easy side dish.
