Sautéed Brussels Sprouts

Sauteed Brussels Sprouts

I’ve always been confused as to why Brussels Sprouts gets such a bad wrap with both kids and adults alike.

Why do they carry such an awful stigma?

Sauteed Brussels Sprouts

I’ve always thought they were absolutely delicious.  Am I the crazy one here?

Growing up, my mom would just steam them and then we’d add some butter and salt and just gobble them up.   And they were delicious!

Plus, they’re incredibly easy to make and look beautiful on your plate.  What’s not to love with that?

It took me years to get Dustin to even consider trying them because he just assumed he didn’t like them.  Now, they’re a side he requests all the time and he loves them, too.

My kids also love this recipe.  They’ll eat these things for breakfast if they could.  And I’m proud of that — even if we are the weird ones.

Please don’t be afraid of the poor Brussels Sprouts.  I promise you they are worth your time and your love.

  • 12 oz Brussels sprouts ends removed and cut in half
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp kosher salt plus more to taste
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper plus more to taste
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  1. Heat a large saute or frying pan to medium-high heat. Add the olive oil and carefully place the Brussels Sprouts cut-side down in the pan.
  2. Cook 4-6 minutes or until the Brussels Sprouts start to brown. Season with the salt and pepper, all the while keeping the Brussels Sprouts cut-side down to brown (don't stir yet).
  3. Add the chicken broth and stir to combine. Cook until most of the broth is cooked out and the Brussels Sprouts are sizzling and browning again, about 4-6 minutes.
  4. Add the garlic and cook for one more minute until the garlic is fragrant and the chicken broth has cooked out.
  5. Serve hot.

    I am giving this recipe a big👍🏽and 👏🏾👏🏾. Enjoyed the sauteed brussel sprouts. My daughter (who does not care for brussel sprouts) really enjoyed them. They were so delicious, that I put the little out for lunch today. I made some salmon to go along with the sauteed brussel sprouts. Thanks for making a Happy Meal Time!

  2. Now if I could just find a way to combine these with one of the cauliflower recipes, well …heaven! Thanks for the recipes.
