Pan Fried Brussels Sprouts

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!
