About this recipe: A wonderful way to spruce up boring Brussel sprouts. Brussel sprouts are cooked with bacon, onion, garlic, balsamic vinegar and chicken stock. Serve as a side dish.
This has the potential to be a 5 star recipe, but for me personally the balsamic was too overpowering for the dish, I think I will tweak it a bit and would be a great recipe. I will probably omit the balsamic and the chicken stock and just sautee them in butter and then do the bacon with garlic and sauteed onions. Thanks for the start! - 15 Mar 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
One thing to remember when using balsmic ordinaire is that it is not as sweet as aged(expensive) balsmic. We add a little sugar(old chiefs trick) to simulate the good stuff. - 26 Nov 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Never did I think I would rate a brussels sprouts recipe as 5 stars. I thought about tossing the sprouts when I got my weekly delivery of organic veggies and saw those in there. but not wanting to be wasteful I figured I would try to find a good recipe to use them in. This was a perfect recipe! I added some cooked quartered red potatoes with the sprouts during the last 10 minutes of cooking and it was so good. Be sure to use good quality balsamic. I used an 18 year aged BV that was slightly flavored with cassis which worked well. - 27 Feb 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
