Brussels sprouts for The Wife

with one comment

Brussels sprouts were ruined for quite a few years by a breeding program that focused on yield rather than taste: they turned bitter and unpleasant. Eventually, producers came to their senses, and Brussels sprouts today are quite tasty, but grudges formed during the dark period remain. So I’m going to tempt The Wife with this recipe passed along by The Eldest:

Shredded Brussels sprouts

2 Tbsp olive oil
1 lb Brussels sprouts, shredded
1 large shallot, thinly sliced
1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
A few sprigs thyme, chopped
3/4 c chicken stock
1 Tbsp butter, chopped
A few sprigs tarragon, chopped

In a large skillet, heat the oil over high heat. Stir in the Brussels sprouts, season with salt and pepper and cook for 3 minutes.

Stir in the shallot, bell pepper, garlic and thyme. Add 1/2 cup chicken stock and cook until evaporated, 2 minutes.

Turn off the heat and stir in the butter and tarragon.
