This was really good! I halved the oil and let the brussels sprouts brown before adding the liquid to add extra flavor. I only used 1/4 cup of the apple cider (it would be too sweet for us with more) and skipped the water, since I knew they would be soft after steaming for about 5 minutes. The flavors are great, though the sun-dried tomatoes do get a little lost in it.
