I simplified this recipe a bit, since I was short on time. I used steam fresh Brussels sprouts, which I microwaved for 4-1/2 minutes. While that was going, I sautéed the garlic in about 1 Tbsp real butter. I added the Brussels sprouts to the sauté pan, then added salt and pepper and a touch of lemon. I sautéed for about 3 minutes on medium-low, then covered it, turned off the heat, & let it sit while I finished plating everything else (about 4 minutes). It is absolutely delicious! My prep time - about 5 minutes. Total cook time, including sitting - about 12 minutes.
Brussels Sprouts with Browned Garlic
To trim Brussels sprouts, discard the tough outer leaves and trim off about 1/4 inch from stems. Don't trim too much from the stems, or the sprouts will fall apart. If you're not a Brussels sprouts lover, try substituting green beans. Be sure to brown the garlic over low heat, because it can burn in a flash.
