My family is a huge fan of brussels sprouts. This slow cooking, stove-top method brings out the savory-sweet-salty-carmelized combination of this recipe wonderfully. Try using applewood bacon for, yet, even another layer of deliciousness. Remember to mind them well without overcooking. They should remain tender-crisp. From Epicurious.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Add bacon and cook, turning occasionally, until crisp, about 5 minutes. Using tongs, transfer bacon to paper towels to drain. Let cool. Coarsely crumble.
  2. While bacon cools, add brussels sprouts to drippings in skillet; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring often, until well browned in spots and beginning to soften, 5-7 minutes.
  3. Reduce heat to low and add raisins, shallot and butter; cook, stirring often, until shallot is soft, about 3 minutes. Add broth to skillet; increase heat and bring to a boil, scraping up browned bits from bottom of pan. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until broth has evaporated, 1-2 minutes. Stir in vinegar and crumbled bacon. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
