I've only eaten brussel sprouts steamed, until I found this recipe. This is from my mom's 500 Low-Carb Recipes' cookbook by Dana Carpender. I added the lemon juice. This recipe has lots of possibilities!
- Remove brown outer leaves of brussel sprouts. Cut the brussel sprouts in half. NOTE: Original recipe left brussel sprouts whole. It's your choice to cut in half or leave whole.
- In sauce pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add the brussel sprouts and fry, stirring occasionally, until very dark brown, almost charred, but NOT burnt.
- The last minute of cooking, add the garlic and stir in to combine. Be careful not to burn the garlic!
- Season to taste with salt, white pepper and lemon juice if using. Serve warm.
