Yes, you read that right! As promised in our blog post from last week, The Story Behind the BO-beau Brussels Sprouts, I will give you the best rendition of the BO-beau brussels sprouts recipe to make in your own home! The good news is – you don’t need a deep fryer like we used at the restaurant! Further more, you don’t need to fry them AT ALL! This recipe is made with easily accessible ingredients that you can find at your local grocery store. We used pancetta at the restaurant but this recipe simply calls for thick cut bacon for your convenience. Pancetta is pork belly, that has been cured for a length of time, and is usually cured with black pepper and other aromatic spices. Conversely, bacon is also pork belly that has been cured for a length of time, with black pepper and other aromatics. The main difference is that bacon is smoked after the curing process. You can use these two interchangeably, without adjusting the quantity needed.
