  1. Trim off the stems and remove any limp leaves from the Brussels sprouts. Blanch the sprouts in boiling water to cover for 5 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water to stop the cooking.
  2. Heat a large frying and add the olive oil, garlic,and onion. Saute a few minutes until the onion just becomes tender. Add the blanched drained Brussels sprouts. Saute a few minutes until the Brussels sprouts are cooked to your liking. Add the vinegar and toss so that all the sprouts are covered with the vinegar. Add the butter and salt and pepper to taste and toss together again.
  3. Remove from heat and serve.

My husband and I were not big fans of brussels sprouts until we tried this recipe. It is delicious!

Yummy! I love brussels sprouts and this recipe did not disappoint. I made this as written, just reduced the butter to 1 tbsp. The balsamic vinegar adds great flavor to the sprouts and onions. This is an easy way to 'fancy-up' brussels sprouts. Thanx for posting!
