Why I Love This Recipe

These Brussels sprouts are incredibly flavorful and they are a perfect pair to any meat meal.

Ingredients You'll Need

4 slices thick-cut bacon, sliced into 1/4-inch strips
1 pound Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
1 close garlic, thinly sliced
1/2 cup chicken stock
1 Tablespoon butter
1 Tablespoon balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper


1. Place bacon in a large skillet over medium-low heat; cook until just crisp, about 10 minutes.

2. Transfer bacon to a paper towel-lined plate, reserving bacon grease in skillet.

3. Increase heat to medium-high under skillet; sauce Brussels sprouts in the bacon grease until lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes.

4. Add garlic to Brussels sprouts; sauté until garlic is fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes.

5. Pour chicken stock over Brussels sprouts mixture and cover skillet with a lid; simmer until Brussels sprouts are bright green, 4 to 5 minutes.

6. Remove lid and continue simmering until liquid is evaporated and sprouts are tender, about 5 more minutes.

7. Remove skillet from heat and stir bacon, butter, vinegar, salt, and pepper into Brussels sprouts mixture until butter is melted.
