Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds Brussels sprouts about 6 cups, tough stems and outer leaves removed
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 small red or yellow onion chopped
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1/3 cup apple cider
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  • Cut the Brussels sprouts in half. Set them in a large saucepan, and add enough water to just cover.
  • Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer, covered, until the Brussels sprouts are bright green and tender but still firm, about 7 minutes.
  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and sauté until translucent, 4 to 5 minutes. Add the garlic and sprouts and continue cooking until the garlic has softened but not browned, about 3 minutes.
  • Pour in the cider, increase the heat to high, and simmer until it’s reduced by half and the sprouts are tender, adding a splash more water if necessary.
  • Season with salt and pepper, and serve warm.

    I didnt have a lot of brussel sprouts so I added some carrots. I also added a few squeezes of German hot mustard for some heat.

      I love these tweaks, Kari. Brussels sprouts and carrots are really compatible.
