Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).

  4. Melt butter in an ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Stir in Brussels sprouts and onions; toss with butter to coat. Stir in salt and black pepper; cook for 2 minutes.
  5. Transfer skillet to the preheated oven and roast until golden and tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Garnish with lemon wedges and serve.

Like the recipe but too many steps. No need to skillet saute. Boil them then coat with butter then roast in oven. The oven will do the browning.

I'm a big fan of Brussels sprouts when I eat out so I wanted to see if I could create the same taste and texture at home. As usual, chef john's version didn't disappoint -- easy and delicious.

Absolutely loved it. I just left em in the oven longer because I like the taste of it when they're more browned. Will make again!

Holy cow. My childhood experience with sprouts was traumatizing. I'm really glad I tried this. I only had a "garlic and herb" butter available in my fridge, but it turned out to be a nice addition. Thanks, Chef John. Another great recipe.

This is a fantastic recipe. I wondered about all the steps until I put my cast iron skillet in the oven and heard the sizzling happening right away. They came out nicely browned and so yummy! Thank you for an awesome recipe.

Only 3 out of 9 at our picnic that like Brussel sprouts, but all 3 of us agree this is the best we ever ate. Made them exactly as the recipe. Can't wait to buy more fresh Brussel sprouts.

Wow. That's all I can say. If you don't like brussels sprouts, you'll like these- no kidding. :) Wow.
