    NcMysteryShopper's Note:

    I served these to a room full of Brussels Sprout haters…. they were shocked that the side dish they were raving about was actually a food they thought they disliked! The majority of the preparation work comes in removing the core and pulling the Brussels sprout layers apart. This is well worth the effort, as the tender leaves cook quickly and evenly to a beautiful bright green color, lightly glazed with olive oil and bits of crisp pancetta.

      Not sure I really should review this, since I didn't use pancetta and didn't cut the cores out of the Brussels but it was so good I had to review it. Even with no pancetta and leaving the cores in the Brussels it came out wonderful. I did cook the Brussels in olive oil with the onions before I added the water and sautéed them. Thanks so much for sharing.

      Always dubious about a 5-star but this one is the real deal. Peeling the brussels are a pain in the butt but the resulting dish makes it all worth it. I used white wine instead of the water and added a tablespoon or so of chives and some roasted pine nuts. My wife is going to make her this at least once a week!

      Excellent! The only change I made was to use turkey bacon instead of pancetta since I had to use it up anyway. I will make this again for sure. Thank you.
