Sautéed Balsamic Brussels Sprouts

Sautéed Balsamic Brussels Sprouts

Yields: 4 to 5 side dish servings



  • 1 1/2 pounds fresh Brussels Sprouts
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced or chopped
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar, try to use a good quality one for best taste
  • a few slices well done bacon, (optional) I used turkey bacon for this recipe, regular bacon would be awesome
  • 2 tbsp toasted pine nuts or walnuts, (place nuts in dry pan for just a few minutes, move the pan around then, take off the heat. Try not burn. Set aside)
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1/2 tsp coarse sea or kosher salt, or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp ground pepper, or to taste


  1. Trim stems and cut off any limp leaves of Brussels Sprouts. Blanch in boiling water for about 5 minutes. Drain, place in an ice bath right away or run under very cold water to stop cooking. Drain again.
  2. Heat a large non stick pan over medium heat. Add oil with garlic and cook just until you smell the garlic. Just a minute or two.  Add the sprouts.
  3. Sauté for a few minutes. Add balsamic. Toss around to coat all the sprouts. Add butter, salt and pepper. Toss and stir a few more times.
  4. Plate up, break bacon, if using into large pieces, toss on top along with nuts. Enjoy!!
