"This delicious twist on an underused vegetable is great as a side dish, or even as the main course. You can substitute red wine for the balsamic vinegar."

  1. Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until evenly browned, but not crispy, about 10 minutes. Remove the bacon with a slotted spoon, leaving the grease in the skillet. Pour off all but 2 tablespoons of the bacon grease and stir in the olive oil, butter, onion, and garlic. Season with salt and pepper. Cook and stir until the onion softens and the garlic lightly browns, 5 to 7 minutes.
  2. Stir in the balsamic vinegar and bring to a simmer; cook until the liquid has reduced by 1/3. Add the reserved bacon, the halved Brussels sprouts, and the chicken stock. Stir, then bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until the Brussels sprouts are tender, yet still slightly firm, about 10 minutes.

One thing to remember when using balsmic ordinaire is that it is not as sweet as aged(expensive) balsmic. We add a little sugar(old chiefs trick) to simulate the good stuff.

This was an easy and flavorful recipe. I love using fresh, colorful ingredients like these. I didn't have any Balsamic vinegar, so I used red wine vinegar, and the flavor wasn't too overpowering...

You can be sure I'll make this again. My wife and I like Brussel Sprouts but this recipe is fantastic. We had the left overs the next night. I did add rice that I had already cooked, to the reci...
