Ready In:




  • Cut off base of a sprout with a sharp knife. Slice a piece from one side of the sprout. Place it cut side down and cut it crosswise into about 5 slices. Repeat with all of the sprouts. (I sliced them all).
  • Heat a large heavy skillet over medium heat for 1 minutes. Add olive oil and swirl to coat skillet.
  • Add shallots; sauté for 2 mintues. Stir in sprouts, salt (if using), and 3 tablespoons water; spread everything evenly across the pan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and cook for 5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, combine mustard, brown sugar, and remaining water in a small bowl; stir until blended. Once sprouts have cooked for 5 minutes, pour mustard mixture over them and stir. Reduce heat to low, cover, cook for 3 minutes, then stir. Remove from heat or, if you prefer, cook for 5 minutes more – the sprouts will get browner and more intensely flavored. Serve hot or warm with black pepper.

    I didn't realise it was the end of the Brussell's sprout season when I tagged this recipe, so I had to hunt for some and pay quite a lot for them when I found them but do you know what? It was worth it because they were so good in this recipe. I made no changes and can't think of any I'd suggest after eating them. Thanks for posting Boomette.

    What a great way to dress up Brussels sprouts. An even great bonus is how tasty they are with out a lot of added fat. Really like the additional depths the shallots and black pepper gave the mustard sauce. You have a winner. Thanks for the post.

    We love Brussels sprouts around here, & although I often fix them somewhat plain, this recipe really dresses them up nicely & the mustardy flavor is very satisfying! Definitely a recipe I'll keep around! [Made & reviewed in 1-2-3 Hit Wonders tag]

    Fantastic brussels sprouts! I followed the recipe exactly as written and wouldn't change a thing. The sauce was perfect in the balance of mustard and sugar flavors. Thanx for a new sprouts recipe!
