I received a simpler version of this recipe a few years back, found this and customized it based on the rest of the meal. I used 1lb. of bacon (hardwood smoked) cut into 1in. pieces. A 2lb. bag of brussel sprouts cut in half. 1 whole clove of garlic. 3tbs. of butter. Pepper to taste. I cooked the bacon until crispy and then scooped it out of the grease. Cooked the halved sprouts in the bacon fat until slightly brown. Added the garlic sliced thinly to the sprouts and continued to cook until you could smell the garlic. Added the bacon back in the pan with the sprouts, garlic and butter- this makes all the flavors cream together well. I made a bound and preseasoned (Italian) pork roast in a Crock Pot. I pulled that out, let it rest for 10 minutes, sliced the binding and cut 3/4 in slices which fell apart! I laid the pieces of roast on top of the cooked sprouts in the pan I cooked in. It was simple and was served in a rustic fashion. Everyone raved! So, thanks to the cook that submitted this recipe- you helped me with the foundation of a wonderful meal!
