I quartered, halved and trimmed a 2-pound bag of Green Giant fresh brussels sprouts that I picked up at Costco and prepared them with bacon and Vidalia onions on the stove top and browned everything in a bit of butter so they would be just like roasted sprouts without heating up the kitchen with a hot oven. I used my nonstick wok and they turned out great! I prefer using my wok to a skillet because of its depth, and there isn't any splattering on my stove. I included the easy peasy recipe for my Brussels, Bacon & Onions below as well as a few photos. Enjoy!
Brussels, Bacon & Onions
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 pounds of fresh brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved or quartered
1/2 of a small Vidalia onion, diced
1 to 2 tablespoons butter
4 - 5 slices of cooked bacon, crumbled
Sea Salt and Black Pepper, to taste
Place brussels sprouts in a 2-quart microwave safe, covered casserole dish along with 1/2 cup water. Cover and steam in the microwave on high for 2 minutes to soften slightly. While sprouts are steaming, heat olive oil over medium heat in a large nonstick wok or skillet; add onions and cook until translucent and beginning to brown and caramelize. Drain sprouts well. Add to skillet with onions and increase heat to medium-high. Add butter and stir-fry uncovered for a few minutes until sprouts begin to brown. Cover and cook an additional 2 to 3 minutes until desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Add crumbled cooked bacon and cook an additional minute.
Another good looking dinner.
Thanks Charlotte! :-)
