Active time 30 mins
Total time 1 hr
Yield 10

Ingredients

  • 3 pounds brussels sprouts
  • 6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 6 (1 1/2 cups) shallots, thinly sliced
  • 2 ounces thickly sliced pancetta, cut into 1/4-inch dice
  • Kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, drained and chopped

How to Make It

  1. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the brussels sprouts until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Drain and pat dry. Cut the brussels sprouts in half lengthwise.

  2. In a large, deep skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil. Add the shallots and cook over moderately low heat, stirring, until lightly browned, 10 minutes; scrape into a bowl.

  3. Add the remaining 1/4 cup of oil to the skillet. Add the brussels sprouts, cut side down, and the pancetta. Season with salt and cook over high heat, stirring occasionally, until the sprouts are browned and tender, 10 minutes. Add the sun-dried tomatoes and shallots and cook, stirring, until warm, 5 minutes. Season with salt, transfer to a bowl and serve.
