Sounds great. How long to you steam them?
I liked this, my husband thought it was ok (he isn't a fan of sprouts anyway). I made as directed, but used maple flavored bacon. I figured the sweetness of the bacon would help soften the bite sprouts sometimes have. An easy, good recipe - sprouts cooked perfectly for me in the recipe's stated time.
Having never cooked brussel sprouts before, I was concerned that they wouldn't cook all the way through in just 6 minutes, but they did and they were yummy. Husband liked but did not love (he is not a brussel sprouts fan and they do still taste like brussel sprouts, even sauteed with bacon). The thyme was a nice flavor.
I don't like actual bacon grease so I omitted the bacon initially and used olive oil to sautee the onion & thyme. Next time I'll use more onion. I added real bacon bits at the end. This was extremely easy and very good. Will make again and again.
I love to make Brussels sprouts, but I do a few things differently. First, I steam the sprouts so they're mostly cooked before I even toss them in the pan. (I have found cooking them thoroughly in the pan just takes too long.) I've never used broth; always a splash of olive oil. I have the sprouts and onion in the pan on the stovetop for just a few minutes to get them nice and brown, then I deglaze with some balsamic vinegar - to me, this is what makes this dish!! That, and lots of fresh ground black pepper.
Simple but good. Made to recipe except subbed fresh thyme for dried. Served with CL's beef with pomegranate pinot sauce. Nice.
