Directions

  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil. Add Brussels sprouts; cook until slightly tender, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove and run sprouts under cold water to stop the cooking process. Trim ends off each Brussels sprout and slice sprouts in half.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat; arrange Brussels sprouts, cut sides down, in the hot oil. Season with red pepper flakes, salt, and black pepper. Cook Brussels sprouts, keeping them in the same place, until cut sides are browned, 7 to 9 minutes.
  3. Mix red onion and garlic into Brussels sprouts; cook and stir mixture until Brussels sprouts are cooked through but still firm, 10 to 13 more minutes.
  4. Place butter in a cold saucepan; place saucepan over medium heat. Cook butter until it begins to bubble and foam, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low; cook, constantly stirring, until butter begins to brown, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat and pour browned butter over Brussels sprouts; toss to coat.

I was a little bit nervous to try this but happy I did! My hubby and I have a new favorite side dish.I used butter flavored Crisco instead of oil and added some fresh mushrooms that I had in the fridge. Yummy!

I wasn't a brussel sprout fan...until now. I needed a quick and easy recipe that was different from the other vegetables that I normally cook. I tried it, I loved it and my family loved it! Delicious!

I had company over for Easter dinner and boy these brussel sprouts were the first thing to go. I should have made more. Followed the recipe as called for and I tell you I will make these again and again...thanks for the great recipe. I tried Chef John's recipe also and we liked these better. Not sure if it was the cold water bath that did the trick because I always cooked them in a steamer and they always came out a little soggy.

My husband and I really liked this recipe! We love brussels and normally just roast them. I made these for Valentine's Day, and we ate every bite! I browned the butter, then added the onions and brussels in to the same pan. I hate using more pans than necessary. They turned out great!
