I’m a Brussels Sprouts tragic
.
There is nothing better than fresh, new season sprouts, steamed with butter and salt
.
When I first saw grilled or roasted Brussels Sprouts, I thought that they would be amazing
.
But they were a bit…meh.
.
Instead of being tender and caramelised, they were kind of dry and charred
.
So, I was determined to work out how to make them the way they were in my head
.
Voila! Check these out
.
By steaming them first you retain that fresh tenderness and then you layer that with a caramelised finish for every kind of delicious
.
You don’t have to add the oven-crisped pancetta – but why would you not?
.
So, if you’ve been on the fence over grilled Brussels Sprouts, I dare you to try these
.
Make them. Post them. Tell me what you think
.
Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 100 grams of Pancetta, cooked at 180° for 10-15 minutes until crispy

  • 500 grams of fresh Brussels Sprouts

  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon of onion powder

  • 0.5 teaspoon of garlic paste

  • 1 teaspoon of salt

  • 0.5 teaspoon of ground black pepper

Directions

  • Prepare your pancetta and crumble it into a container
  • (this is a great thing to have on hand in the fridge to add a punch of flavour and crunch to dishes)
  • De-stem and peel your sprouts and cut in half
  • Steam for about 10 minutes, until just tender
  • Mix the seasonings into the olive oil and toss through the cooked Brussels Sprouts until they’re well coated
  • Heat a non-stick frying pan and cook the sprouts, cut side down, until they are golden and caramelised.
  • Add the crumbled pancetta and stir through
