My new favorite


Hello everyone and welcome to Tempt My Tummy Tuesday. Glad to have you join us. My sister, Lisa, and I co-host this blog carnival. We share recipes, kitchen and cooking tips, restaurant reviews, and anything food related that you want to share. So, join the fun. Mr. Linky lives at Lisa's blog... so don't forget to go visit her there!

We have had so many great Thanksgiving recipes posted lately so I thought we should give our widget a nice Fall makeover. So feel free to pick it up. We'll be using all month.

Today I want to share one of my new favorite Thanksgiving recipes. It is Brussels Sprouts with Pancetta. Amazing! I know most of you say... "I hate brussels sprouts"
Well not these. Even my husband was skeptical, now he loves them and you will too.

Brussels Sprouts with Pancetta

Ingredients

  • 1 pound fresh Brussels sprouts, trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 ounces paper-thin slices pancetta, coarsely chopped (I've used bacon when pancetta not available and it works just fine)
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3/4 cup low-salt chicken broth

Directions

Partially cook the Brussels sprouts in a large pot of boiling salted water, about 4 minutes. Drain.

Meanwhile, heat the oil in a heavy large skillet over medium heat. Add the pancetta and saute until beginning to crisp, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic and saute until pale golden, about 2 minutes. Add the Brussels sprouts to the same skillet and saute until heated through and beginning to brown, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Add the broth and simmer until the broth reduces just enough to coat the Brussels sprouts, about 3 minutes.

That DOES sound good. Okay, I will make this and FORCE hubby to eat them. I am sure he will like them, too! The button looks good. Good job.

I luuuuuuurve sprouts! Specially par-boiled, sliced in half and pan fried with butter and cracked black pepper! Unfortunately, The Dutch Boy gags at the smell of them :(

LOVE the fall button :)

Brussel Sprouts are one of "those" veggies in our house. Ha! But what is they say? Try, try, try again!

I KNOW!! My husband really felt that way until he had these, now... LOVES THEM! :-)

Lana,

I may give this a try. Brussel sprouts, the first 1-3 aren't bad, but then after that....but this may be what they need.

Thanks for sharing!

You know, I've NEVER even tasted a brussel sprout. Never even knew what they were until I was on my own. Hmmm... I should ask my mom and dad about that sometime...

Sherry said...

I'm not much into sprouts, but this might even tempt me to eat them. :D

My family isn't thrilled with Brussels sprouts, but they tolerate them if I don't fix them too often. I'm going to try this recipe and maybe they'll start asking for it!

This looks so good!

I am always trying to convince my husband that he likes brussel sprouts. This recipe might finally do it!

Thanks for sharing!

hmmm... I am skeptical, I think someone would have to fix it for me. I can't bring myself to buy brussel sprouts.

I will be optimistically skeptical....or skeptically optimistic, not sure which. Every past BS experience (LOL....get it?) has been an unpleasant one...but they look so gosh darn pretty. I have a friend with a good sounding recipe, too. I guess I'll have to try both :D
