As a child I only remember eating Brussels Sprouts steamed or boiled with cheese sauce. I didn't mind them, but mostly I was eating them for the cheese sauce! If you have similar memories yourself then you probably aren't a huge brussels sprout fan. I urge you to try them again! Here is a simple way of preparing them that you're sure to love.
20-30 Brussels sprouts, halved
1/2 onion, sliced
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 tablespoon butter
salt & pepper to taste
1 lemon wedge
Oil a cast iron pan and place it over medium low heat.
Once the pan is hot place onions into cast iron pan and saute for 5-10 minutes or until they begin to brown.
Add garlic and continue to saute for 1-2 minutes.
Add the butter, salt & pepper. Once it has melted add the Brussels sprouts, cut side down. Allow to cook for 5-10 minutes or until the bottom side has started to blacken.
Toss Brussels spouts and allow to cook for an additional 3-5 minutes to add some colour to the other side. The onions will be brown and crispy!
Sprinkle with the juice from a wedge of a fresh lemon.
Plate and serve!
