  1. I love brussels sprouts, and this is really such a great way to eat them. I can totally imagine brussels sprouts haters enjoying this, as the lime juice and stir-frying really mellows out their flavor. Just an all-around great side dish for any occasion. [Made & Reviewed for Rookie Recipes]
  2. I tagged these due to DH likes brussels sprouts!!! My Mother never made them and I have never tried them, but was willing to try them, but still had a back up salad set for me if needed, lol!! I was totally surprised that I liked them and it was so easy to make for the most part(other then shredding the sprouts and juicing the limes.) I still don't think they smell that great while they are cooking, same with cabbage, but taste is very good. I would definitely make these again and could see adding onion and using lemon in place of the lime if that is what I had on hand, so good!! Thanks for sharing a recipe that has now added a new veggie to our dinners!! Made for Please Review My Recipe Tag Game.
  3. I liked this a lot! I have made brussels sprouts very similar to this before. I did char some of my sprouts and it made it a little bitter, but hey, my fault. Love the flavor from the lime!
  4. Cooked these over high heat (with less oil) to get them brown and caramelized, which makes them so good. We liked the lime with them, but I think lemon would be even better. The method is the star here.
  5. This worked beautifully with organic brussels sprouts I picked up last week at the farmers' market. I chose the olive oil option and pan fried them on *medium* heat. A few strands of lime zest was garnished on top. Really good and super easy. Nice change from the usual sprouts and lemon combo. Thanks for posting! Made for Best of 2013.
