Total Time

From Cooking Light Dec 2002, I love this recipe because it is delicious, easy, and makes brussels sprouts quick to prepare.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 8 cups halved and thinly sliced Brussels sprouts (about 1 1/2 pounds)
  • 12 cup reduced-sodium fat-free chicken broth
  • 1 12 tablespoons sugar (I omit this)
  • 12 teaspoon salt
  • 8 teaspoons coarsely chopped pecans, toasted (I use more)


  1. Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic; sauté 4 minutes or until lightly browned. Stir in Brussels sprouts; sauté 2 minutes. Add broth and sugar; cook 5 minutes or until liquid almost evaporates, stirring frequently. Stir in salt. Sprinkle with pecans.

This is the only way I will cook my brussel sprouts. Has a ton of flavor and I can add other veggies to it such as carrots or snow peas. Sometimes I use beef broth instead of the chicken broth or brown sugar in place of regular. Great recipe, thanks for posting!

I loved this. I have been on a brussel sprouts kick (I think my family is sick of them). I didn't put the sugar in either. I don't think it needs sugar. Most definitely will make them this way again!
