Just had to see what BS I am talking about…


I have always said YUCK 100% to Brussel Sprouts

I know they are supposed to be so healthy for you.

I have always been served little green balls steaming in water that smelled to me awful.
I went to a restaurant recently and was served Brussel sprouts in a whole new way and absolutely loved them. They were split in two lengthwise

and sautéed.

I was so shocked that I actually liked them I went home and started experimenting. Well I have come up with a recipe I love, my family loves, and yes my guinea pig friends now love. Yes I did not mention what vegetable I was serving until it was served. They all said my recipe was a keeper! So if you are BRAVE
and willing to try something new let me know if you now like BS…

My Recipe

Sautéed Brussel Sprouts
(You will never say you hate Brussel Sprouts Again)

2 lb. Fresh Medium to Small Brussel Sprouts
10-14 Garlic Cloves Finely Chopped
1/4 -1/3 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2-3 cubes of Chicken or Beef Bouillon Cubes crushed (depending on what meat you are serving)
2 T Butter melted
2 T Sugar
Salt & Pepper to taste

1. Mix together Olive Oil, Butter, Sugar, Bouillon Cubes (smash them), Garlic, Salt, & Pepper. Set aside.
2. Cut Brussel Sprouts in half lengthwise.
3. Mix the Brussel Sprouts & Olive Oil Mixture together well.
4. Place coated Brussel Sprouts in skillet greased with a little olive oil flat cut side down to start out.
5. Let sauté until the flat side browns slightly and turn. Brown slightly the other side.
6. Serve Hot with a meal, savory, yummy, nutty flavor.

I may have to try that. The recent Brussels sprouts experiment cooked was a failure.

I may give it a try. I like most vegetables, but the best brussel sprouts I've ever had were barely edible. I believe they were boiled. The worst I've ever had were pickled. It tasted like a gutter wino farted in my mouth.

I like cabbage and spinach raw or sauteed, but I can't stomach either of them boiled.
Boiling seems to release sulfurous compounds in brussels and cabbage and gives spinach the texture of pond slime.

You can always sautéed them with bacon...everything's better with bacon

I am laughing
you sound just like me before I tried them this new way.
I still do not like cooked spinach (pond slime) but love raw fresh spinach in a salad.
If you are BRAVE and try this let me know what you think.

Will try this roasting method now that I have new BS Courage

And yes don't get me started on shhh... Bacon (love it, love it) I hear the ATS bacon watchers lurk about

From what I've read, they are very good for you. They have compounds that seem to have strong anti cancer properties.
Overcooking seems to be what releases the sulfurous compounds that make them taste bad.
I'll give them another chance.

I love brussel sprouts so much! I usually steam them with garlic and butter, even as a kid id eat a whole bowl of them just plain steamed. My kids wont touch them though, maybe if i try this for them they will, iv only ever steamed them so this should be good to try thanks for posting

I hated them until my husband's uncle served me some roasted ones. Wow.

I've since experimented and I prefer roasting them. I have discovered that to make them truly enjoyable one must use generous amounts of salt. One cooking blog suggested treating roasted brussels sprouts like you would french fries in regards to the amount of salt. It does make a huge difference.

Try them roasted in the oven. Lots less work. Cut them in half and mix with cut-up potatoes, onion, garlic cloves (whole), mushrooms and baby carrots and put it all in a large roasting pan. Drizzle generously with olive oil and add seasonings: Sea salt, ground black pepper, basil, oregano, chipotle pepper and LOTS of rosemary. Stir to coat. Bake @ 400 for one hour, stirring well every 20 minutes.

You will die!

Of course, adding bacon, ham chunks or smoked sausage in the last 20 minutes makes it even more drool-worthy and a complete meal.

Been doing this for years, cooked any other way they are "ammunition food".

For another take spring peas and fry them with onions till they are browned an begin popping out of the fry pan. It's AMAZING!

I was in the same boat as most people who thought that brussel's sprouts were the nastiest things ever, and like many have said, my mother always steamed them. My sister and father equally hated them. Last christmas I saw them sitting on the counter waiting to be cooked for christmas dinner. As my mom ran around the kitchen like a chicken with her head cut off, I said, "Mum, lemme help. I'll cook the brussel's sprouts." She said fine just don't ruin them. I sauteed them and served them with (a LOT) of browned butter and sage. They were gone even before the prime rib.
