Author Notes: Cooking seasonally sure gets a lot harder once winter arrives. Fortunately, there are brussels sprouts! This is one of my favorite recipes - perfect for cold days and easy enough to make after work. —amelinda
pound brussels sprouts
shallots, finely diced
ounces pancetta, chopped into small pieces
cup chicken broth
- Remove any tough outer layers and slice the brussels sprouts vertically into 1/4-inch discs. I prefer to use smaller, sweeter sprouts for this recipe.
- Meanwhile, saute pancetta in a large frying pan over medium heat.
- Add shallots and brussels sprouts to pancetta and rendered fat. Saute until shallots are translucent and sprouts are just beginning to wilt.
- Add the chicken broth and cover with lid or foil; cook another 10 minutes or until brussels sprouts are soft. Add salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy!
