Sauteed Brussels Sprouts

Today we're having Brussels sprouts so tomorrow we can have cookies!  K?


I saw Jamie Deen shave Brussels sprouts on his new show (which I love), and I thought it was a brilliant idea.  So I adapted his recipe.

And here you go.

You'll need butter, shallots, garlic, Brussels sprouts, salt and pepper.  And we're going to finish these with brown sugar and lemon juice.

It may sound weird, but it's so good!  You can't distinguish the lemon juice or the sugar - they just give the sprouts a wonderful, rounded flavor.

Whatever rounded means.

And I just have one last thing to say.  Sautéing anything in butter is not really a risky thing to do.  After all, how bad can that be?

You'll just have to see for yourself.

Sauteed Brussels Sprouts
Heavily Adapted from Jamie Deen

1 T butter
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 shallots, minced
1 lb. Brussels sprouts, ends trimmed off and then shaved into thin strips
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 T brown sugar
Juice of 1/2 lemon

Heat the butter in a skillet and add the shallots and garlic.  Saute for about a minute.  Add the shaved Brussels sprouts and saute for five minutes, stirring frequently.  Season with salt, pepper, brown sugar and lemon juice.  Stir well and remove from heat.  Serve immediately or at room temperature (I actually liked them at room temperature better).
