I LOVED this recipe. I've never fried brussel sprouts before and this sounded so differant. Finally got around to trying it last night and it went together so easy. I did add some sauted onions to the mix at the beginning and then followed the directions exactly. The addition of the garlic and lemon gave it just the right flavor. Thanks so much for posting.
I was not able to get mine as brown as I wanted but I think that may have been because I used frozen brussels. I followed the recipe exactly other thatn that, they were still very good. They wer soft and flavorful. I will continue to make them this way even if I never am able to get them to brown. I added the joice of half a lemon, yummy.
Love this idea, but try using unrefined Coconut Oil instead of Olive Oil. It takes heat without changing it's composition, making it a healthier oil to cook with. And no, it doesn't taste like coconut... but hey, that's not a bad idea to toss in some shredded dried coconut for a refreshing taste! Another additive, that's natural is a product called Junselle's Turkish Gold. It's a high quality blend of nuts/honey/oats that would be yummy. I think that product is 'googleable' LOL! Thanks for posting!
This was tasty and easy. However, if you are not a fan of brussel sprouts, I don't think this will convert you. However, for those of us who are, this was a nice treat. Made for ZWT6.
I have been pan frying Brussels sprouts for years but never thought of adding a squeeze of lemon juice. What a great addition. Thanks for sharing!
ZWT6 Family Picks: Delicious - love the crunchy caramelized leaves!! Who knew Sprouts could be this good?
I will never steam brussels sprouts again! They carmelized and tasted SO GOOD! My husband and I said at dinner tonight that this is the go-to recipe for brussels sprouts, one of our favorite veggies. Made for ZWT6 and will repeat!
I give this a 5 star rating just because although I like vegetables, brussel sprouuts are my very least favorite, and this recipe brings them up quite a few notches. My husband says this is the best he's ever eaten. I cut mine in half, used avocado oil because of the higher smoking point and I used lots of jarred mince garlic, adding that with a little bit of butter just the last minute or two of cooking. Next time I'd like to try thinly sliced fresh garlic, I find it browns nicer without burning as easily vs minced garlic. I added lemon juice at the end, and I think they need the lemon. My husband put malt vinegar on his at the table, but he always does that with brussel sprouts and cabbage. 10 minutes on medium high to start then reduced to medium after about a minute was perfect on my stove, they were nice and dark brown but not burnt. The browning added a depth of flavor that somehow changed the taste I always find with steamed sprouts.
Wonderful, which is something I never thought I'd say about sprouts. Used fresh to give them a fair shot since I hated frozen. Used avocado oil since it holds up to heat better. I only had jarred garlic so I added it the last minutes of frying. No one else in the house likes sprouts even after trying this but you have a convert in me. This is also good adding other veg, tofu, and spices to make a full meal. Thanks for sharing!
Good stuff! I used 2 tablespoons olive oil and 1 tablespoon fresh made butter form raw whole milk. I enjoyed the lemon which did brighten the flavor. Very much like Roasted Sliced Brussels Sprouts With Garlic. So how can I not like this? Thanks for great eats. Leftovers are going into Cream of Brussels Sprout Roasted Garlic Soup!
