These little cabbages were a hit with us and it was fun to vary from our usual creamy mustard recipe. I didn't cook them quite as long...maybe 12 minutes..because I like them still a little bit crispy. The flavor was fantastic. I just hated to see that bottle of dark ale wasted. Good and interesting recipe.

I love brussels sprouts!! And I like my beer!!! When I saw this recipe I just knew it would be great. And it was!! Oh and since I gave the sprouts a beer, I had one also!! Thanks for a great new way of doing one of my favorite veggies.
