Brussel Sprouts, Jamie Oliver's Way
Brussels Sprouts? Yikes, not many like them at all. I have discovered a way to make them that many now enjoy them, including myself. I have made Brussels sprouts with bacon before and enjoyed it well enough, what is different about this method is that it takes so little time to make. When I saw Jamie Oliver making them, I was inspired once more. You do need a food processor to make this recipe, that is the first time saver, the second time saver is the fact the Brussels sprouts are so thinly sliced, you cook them for only 8 minutes are so. Yay! Right?
Note: I did not follow all of what Janie did, I added the onions, wine and seasoned differently.
8 slices bacon
1/2 c. diced onions
8 to 10 cups sliced thinly sliced Brussels sprouts
½ c. wine, chicken stock or water
1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce
Sage (fresh or dried) 4-5 leaves fresh or 1 tsp. dried
1 tbsp. salt and
2 tsp. black pepper
1 tbsp. smoked paprika (or any paprika)
*OR 2 tbsp. of your seasoning mix.
Cut the bacon into small pieces and fry on medium in a large pan. Remove the bacon and pour out most of the bacon fat. Add the onions to the pan and cook for one minute. Add the Brussel sprouts, sage, salt and pepper or the seasoning mix, stir well. Add the wine and cook for 5 minutes. Add the Worcestershire sauce and cook another 3 minutes or till you are happy with it.
Eat your Brussel sprouts and love them.
Note:This plate reheats really well, but will lose its bright colour, it is good piping hot or warm.
