The Berger Bungalow: Balsamic Glazed Brussels Sprouts

Balsamic Glazed Brussels Sprouts
Posted on:11.09.2015

I am back with another recipe from our five course dinner! This one is a simple, but really good Balsamic Glazed Brussels Sprouts Recipe! Ian and I eat a lot of green vegetables. We love brussels, asparagus, broccoli and collards. You name it and I bet we love it. I definitely like vegetables more than he does - I could eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner, but he only likes them as a side. This recipe is a perfect compliment to a steak or pork roast since the brussels have a deep flavor to them! We didn't change the process at all, so here is the exact recipe that we received from Yummy Key! Check it out & let me know what you think!!:)

Balsamic Glazed Brussels Sprouts

  • 1 Tablespoon Bacon Fat Or Butter
  • 4 strips Slab Bacon, Sliced
  • 1 whole Medium Yellow Onion, Diced
  • 1-½ pound Fresh Brussels Sprouts, Stems Trimmed Off And Halved
  • Kosher Salt To Taste
  • Black Pepper To Taste
  • 2 Tablespoons Balsamic Glaze (Like STAR Brand)
  1. In a large 12 inch skillet, heat a tablespoon of bacon fat or butter over medium/medium-high heat.
  2. Add in the chopped bacon and cook for 5 minutes. Next add in the chopped onion, stir and cook until the bacon starts to get crispy and the onions turn a deep golden. Remove with a slotted spoon to a paper towel lined plate, leaving the bacon fat still in the skillet.
  3. Lay the halved brussels sprouts {cut side down} in the skillet. Once all of the brussels sprouts are in, reduce the heat to medium and place the lid over the pan. The steam will help to cook the sprouts. Let the brussels sprouts cook for 5-8 minutes this way before stirring.
  4. Add the bacon and onions back into the skillet, stir and continue to cook the sprouts until fork tender but not too soft. Season with a little bit of kosher salt and a lot of black pepper {to taste}.
  5. Drizzle in two tablespoons of the balsamic glaze, stir and serve hot.
Note: If you don't have the STAR balsamic glaze in stores near you, you can easily do this substitute: In a small sauce pan, heat up 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar and 2 tablespoons of honey. Mix and bring to a simmer until it reduces down 75%. Then just drizzle the desired amount of the reduced balsamic and honey over the brussels!
