Recipe: Balsamic Glazed Brussel Sprouts
Brussels Sprouts, rinsed and trimmed
2 T olive oil
1 shallot, chopped
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1 pat butter
1 T olive oil
Steam brussels sprouts either in the microwave for 4 minutes or in a pot of water. Drain and sprinkle with 2 T olive oil. Place pan in 350 degree oven. Cook until sprouts have caramelized and are soft, about 30 minutes.
Make glaze. In a small fry pan heat 1 T olive oil and chopped shallot until soft and aromatic. After it sizzles for a couple of minutes, slowly add the balsamic vinegar. Bring to a simmer and allow to reduce by half. When reduced, whisk in the butter and pour over the brussels sprouts. Serve. They are even better the next day, if there are any left!
