DIRECTIONS

  • If you can, get your brussels sprouts from a store that sells them loose in bins; pick out the smaller, tight sprouts.
  • To cook them, clean and trim the sprouts, removing the bottom stem and tougher outside leaves (very important!).
  • You've already cut the bottom of the stalk off: now cut an"X" into the bottom of each sprout (about an 1/8 of an inch deep).
  • Steam the sprouts for about 20 minutes, until they are soft (everybody prefers theirs in their own way, but I cannot stand crunchy brussels sprouts).
  • While the sprouts are steaming, sauté the minced garlic in a little bit of butter for about 3 minutes, then combine them into the rest of the melted butter.
  • When spouts are done cooking place them in a serving dish, pour the melted garlic butter over the sprouts, season lightly with salt and pepper, and serve.
