Very good brussel sproats, and that is from my DH who is not too fond of brussel sproats. I left the pancetta out because we were having quite a rich meat entree. I caramalized the onions in a separate frypan 'til nice and deep brown, they really complemented the sproats. The sproats went well with the pork tenderloin w/gorgonzola cream we were having, thanks for sharing.
