    Cookgirl's Note:

    From 'Recipes from the Root Cellar'. "This is a luxurious way of cooking Brussels sprouts, perhaps not for every day (or even every week), but the cream does have a wonderful way of taming the often unruly (read: sulfurous) flavor of Brussels sprouts. Don't underestimate the power of the salt and balsamic vinegar for bringing the flavors together; taste and adjust as needed." I think this side dish would be an appropriate addition to your Thanksgiving/Holiday menu!

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat the grape seed oil in a large skillet or Dutch oven over medium-high heat.
    2. 2
      Toss in the Brussels sprouts and shallots; saute, stirring occasionally until the sprouts are browned in some spots; about 5 minutes.
    3. 3
      Pour in the heavy cream, season with salt and pepper to taste, stirring to mix then cover.
    4. 4
      Reduce the heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally until the sprouts are tender enough to pierce easily with a tip of a paring knife, approximately 30-35 minutes.
    5. 5
      Stir in the balsamic vinegar. Taste and add more salt and vinegar if needed.
    6. 6
      Simmer, uncovered for 1-2 minutes to allow the flavors to mingle. Be careful not to boil the mixture once you've added the heavy cream!
    7. 7
      Serve immediately.

      Creamy and delicious.<br/>I did add just a tiny bit of water mixed with cream at the end as I think I might have reduced it a little much, but this was just a wonderful recipe.<br/>Thanks Cookgirl.

      Delicious brussels sprouts. Very creamy - I could see this mixed with pasta for a main dish. Thanks!
