    This recipe needs some tweaking. The cooking time was way off. DH made them and neither of us had ever made them before. They were way too hard. After looking at some other recipes he should have cooked them longer or roasted them. We did like the flavor, so we will tweak it.

    Agree more cooking time is needed. I sliced thinly to speed it up. I plan on using brown sugar next time but all in all a quick way to get sprouts on the table without boiling or roasting.

    It was ok, but the sprouts were still too raw and bitter for my taste. The cooking time is unrealistic for that amount of brussel sprouts, unless your pan is the size of Texas. In my opinion, the brussel sprouts should be finely cut, your pan should be HOT, and do the sauteing in batches!

    This is not a review - but considering people gave low stars when obviously they did not see the directions for "slicing thinly" - I figured it only fair.

    Two stars because a recipe with a 5min allowance to cook thin-sliced brussels sprouts is way off -- especially when followed by the insruction "or until brown." Choose this because we could prep the sprouts and shallots in the morning and throw together in the evening. Subbed brown sugar for white. Served with CL's rosemary-dijon custed rib roast.
