TRY THIS EASY BRUSSEL SPROUTS RECIPE

Until two years ago I never had tried Brussels sprouts. My daughter introduced me to this Barbie-sized-like head of lettuce. This description is all you need to know about my level of cooking skills.

The struggle is real in my kitchen. But this brussel sprout recipe is my redemption recipe.

On a girls’ trip to the mountains, a close friend shared this broiled Brussel sprouts recipe with me. She made it in like ten minutes.

A few weeks later she had to coach me over the phone when I mistook broiled for boil. When I finally got the recipe right I committed her recipe to memory. I also fell in love with this 7″ skillet.

BRUSSEL SPROUT RECIPE

The key to this recipe is my friend’s secret ingredient that adds a bit of fancy and sweet at the same time.

A spicy chili sauce, found in the aisle with the marinades. Who knew there was an aisle for marinades? I tend to venture down the coffee and baking aisles with more frequency than the sauces and canned vegetables.

Tip: The Kroger brand is 1/2 the price. It is on the top shelf so you may need to ask for help or do what I usually do and climb the shelves when no one is available to assist.

There is a whole new world in Aisle 8 at Kroger.

The recipe says to toss the Brussel sprouts after they are broiled for a few minutes. But, I have tossed them in the spicy chili sauce before I broil them.

BROILED BRUSSEL SPROUTS RECIPE

INGREDIENTS

12 BRUSSEL SPROUTS

2-4 TBSP OLIVE OIL

DASH SALT + PEPPER

4 TBSP SPICY CHILI SAUCE

DIRECTIONS

  1. CUT-OFF ENDS OF BRUSSEL SPROUTS
  2. CUT BRUSSEL SPROUTS INTO HALVES OR QUARTERS ( I prefer to cut into quarters).
  3. TOSS WITH OLIVE OIL, AND ADD SALT + PEPPER TO TASTE
  4. ADD TO SKILLET ON MEDIUM HEAT FOR A FEW MINUTES
  5. BROIL FOR 3-5 MINUTES
  6. REMOVE FROM OVEN AND TOSS WITH SWEET CHILI SAUCE + SERVE
  7. ENJOY WITH A GLASS OF WINE

Minus the Brussels sprouts, olive oil, salt, and pepper the only ingredient you need is the spicy chili sauce. This is in the soy sauce aisle. Remember, when you get to the aisle look up because it was at the top of the shelf.

    One word … FABULOUS!! This recipe was really outstanding! I love brussel sprouts and am always looking for a new way to eat them. I love your cooking stories … reminding me of a time when my brother, sister, and mother were sitting around a table with my new sister-in-law … talking about cooking. One of the recipes we were talking about involved boiling water, and my beautiful new little sister-in-law piped up and said, “Oh! I know how to do that!” Gives you a little hint of her “genius” cooking skills 😜

    1. This is hilarious! Thanks for stopping by today Tauni!

  4. I’d love to make this but the broiling time doesn’t seem to be sufficient to cook these through?
