Amazing!! We started a super club and this is the first recipe I brought. It was loved by everyone, including all the "Oh, I am not a fan of brussels sprouts" people. Everyone is a fan now. So very good. Thank you. Followed the recipe to a tee, very good.

This Sunday I tried Brussels Sprouts for the first time and today I had to make them again (it's Tuesday). And I'm so glad I found this recipe. I used frozen ones and the middle didn't really cook through but it was fine with me since I like my veggies fresh and crunchy. Plus ,they look so cute and small.Thanks for sharing, Sharon.

I never knew I liked brussel sprouts until I made these. I used a bag of frozen sprouts and no red wine vinegar. The secret to this recipe is the melting of the sugar in the beginning.....you end up with this awesome carmel sauce when it reduces. Now I have found a vegetable my boyfriend will eat!

I love that this is so different then any other recipe I have ever tried with sprouts. I followed recipe as written with the exception of using frozen un cut sprouts. I will definatly try it again and maybe uses the sauce on something like chicken.

Oh my goodness, what a treat!. These were some delicious sprouts. I couldn't stop eating this little things. They were sweet and tangy, but still retained their sprout taste. I will definitely be making these often. Thanks so much for the recipe.

I was looking for a different way to prepare brussel sprouts. I didn't use Balsalmic vinegar (fearful it would overpower the taste) and replaced it with apple cider vinegar and IT overpowered the taste. Next time I may just use all red wine vinegar. We really enjoyed them however and I didn't even take the time or effort to carmalize the sugar. I simply combined all the ingredients in the saucepan and heated enough to dissolve the sugar. I used frozen bruseel sprouts that I cooked in water till just about done. Then added them to the sauce. I added bits of packaged bacon at the end and thought some raw red onion would also be good. Thanks for the recipe.

These were really good. As stated by someone else, I cut my sprouts in half and they really soaked up all the flavor. Very tender. Some of the sugar did clump but I may have done something wrong. I had 10 things going on at the same time. :) Thanks so much for sharing.
