Spicy-and-Garlicky Brussels Sprouts

Con Poulos
Total time 30 mins
Yield 12
The staff at Myers + Chang restaurant call these sprouts "green candy" because they get so sweet as they brown in the skillet.

Ingredients

  • 3 pounds brussels sprouts, halved
  • 6 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 4 cloves (large) garlic, smashed
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • Salt

How to Make It

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the brussels sprouts and cook until bright green, 2 minutes. Drain well and pat dry.

  2. In a large, deep skillet, heat 3 tablespoons of the oil until shimmering. Add half of the garlic and half of the brussels sprouts and cook over high heat undisturbed for 1 minute. Add half of the crushed red pepper, season with salt and cook over moderate heat, stirring a few times, until the brussels sprouts are browned and tender, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a serving bowl. Repeat with the remaining oil, garlic, brussels sprouts and crushed red pepper. Serve warm.
