This is a quick and easy way to cook this often-avoided vegetable, and I have made many a Brussels sprout convert through this recipe. Steaming the sprouts in chicken broth helps to draw out their true hearty flavor and makes them a great accompaniment to any chicken or fish entree.
Sauteed Brussels Sprouts
Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 15 min
Brussels sprouts (preferably still on the stalk, but bagged sprouts will do)
Olive oil, for sauteing
1 cup chicken broth
Place a large skillet over medium heat.
Prepare the brussels sprouts by rinsing them in water, drying them and cutting them in half length-wise.
Add enough olive oil to the heated pan to thinly coat the surface.
Place each brussels sprout cut-side down in the pan and allow them to sautée for 3 to 4 minutes, or until they are slightly browned.
Sprinkle a pinch of Kosher salt over the sprouts as they sautée in the olive oil.
Pour the chicken broth over the sprouts and immediately cover the pan with a lid.
Allow the sprouts to steam for 6 to 8 minutes, or until they are soft through the browned center.
Serve as a side dish, or enjoy a bowl of the sprouts as a healthy snack!
