"My friend Angela gave me this holiday hit recipe! Everyone loved it and was asking for the recipe. Brussels sprouts have never been a favorite of mine until now. Beef stock can be used in place of chicken stock. Great side dish with our Easter ham. ENJOY!"

  1. Place the bacon, onion, and garlic in a large, deep skillet and cook over medium-high heat until the onions caramelize, 10 to 12 minutes.
  2. Pour the chicken stock into the pan; add the Brussels sprouts. Bring the liquid to a boil while scraping the browned bits of food off of the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon. Stir the mixture so the sprouts are coated in the liquid
  3. Place a cover on the skillet and cook until the sprouts are cooked through yet firm, about 15 minutes.

If you love brussel sprouts this is sure to disappoint. If you wish to cover up their flavour it's worth a try. Crisp the bacon and set aside until the last moment or it becomes soft and greas...

Ever since I was a child, I have always been under the impression that brussel sprouts are not good. However, now that I'm an adult, I've recently had the desire to give them a second chance. ...

This tasted great and was super easy. Also, I didn't need to add any salt or other seasonings. The listed ingredients' flavors married well all on their own.

This is very good. I browned the bacon alone in pan and then set aside and added the onions on lower heat to caramelize and added the garlic last. then returned the bacon back to pan and followe...

These are delicious! I wouldn't change a thing.

I think when we were younger, nobody liked brussels sprouts because they were nearly always boiled to death, and really weren't good. I learned years ago to saute them, roast them, etc. and the...

The only thind I did different was to add a bay leaf to the chicken stock [home made]. 1-1/2 cups. Everything tastes good with bacon. Brussel sprouts are an acquired taste like scotch.

This is the best Brussels Sprouts recipe I have ever made. My hubby and I both loved it. I will be cooking them more often. Definitely a keeper! Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe.

Big hit at Christmas dinner! I used a can of broth and simmered down. Next time I will try adding the bacon bits at the end and see if we like them a bit crisp, definitely will cook again
