I really loved this recipe. I made it exactly as follows other than adding a tiny bit extra of olive oil and water. I'll definitely be making this again. Thanks Syd!

Delicious! I modified the method to first steam, then pan fry them on medium high heat to brown them, skipping the water. Great great flavor. This served two in our house.

Great recipe! The sprouts turned out nicely browned and cooked beautifully. Of course, I did add more lemon pepper cause I'm addicted to the stuff. Thanks Syd!
