8 servings (serving size: about 2/3 cup)

These take just a brief turn in the pan--slicing the sprouts cuts down on their cooking time. The dish's sweet, buttery flavors mellow the bite of the Brussels sprouts.

How to Make It

Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic; sauté 4 minutes or until lightly browned. Stir in Brussels sprouts; sauté 2 minutes. Add broth and sugar; cook 5 minutes or until liquid almost evaporates, stirring frequently. Stir in salt. Sprinkle with pecans.

Delish! And quick! I made this for Thanksgiving and even my non-brussels sprouts eaters devoured it. I didn't change a thing! It's perfect as it is! Can't wait to have it again soon.

I really dont like brussel sprouts but I made this for my husband and I have to admit I really liked it. If youre trying to break out of your brussel sprout hate then try this recipe. I used pine nuts instead of pecans and added sliced carrots. It was excellent!

Made to recipe. Easy and very good but next time would reduce the amount of sugar by half. Served with CL's Herb & Mustard-Crusted Fillet and Asiago Potato-Bacon Gratin.

I did cut the recipe to a third, which means I had to guess a little about proportions. This was pretty good--nice and crunchy. I added slivered almonds instead of pecans. I served with salmon.

One of my favorite winter side dishes, and a great way to incorporate this very healthy (but not always very tasty) veg into your diet.

Yum! I recommend using Trader Joe's Praline Pecans (they are out of this world delicious) and reducing the sugar down to one tablespoon. I've never liked brussels sprouts before, but devoured this!

This is the best best best brussels sprouts recipe ever. I might reduce the amount of sugar by just a bit.

I've tried a couple of different brussels sprouts recipes over the last year--trying to like them. I have been very disappointed so far, but this recipe was terrific! I didn't want to stop eating it. With most brussels spouts recipes, I don't want to start. This will be the go to recipe from now on.

Easy to make and good for you too. A non-brussel sprout eater found this recipe good enough to go through his entire serving, asking me to pass the recipe on to his sister. I used 1/2 the sugar on recommendation from another reviewer, but next time I think I'll follow it to a tee or substitute brown sugar instead. Not as full a taste as the brussel sprouts I've had cooked more simply but I will try again.
