Sautéed Brussels Sprouts with Pancetta is the best Brussel sprout recipe! Lightly pan fried until crisp and slightly browned on the edges, it's my favorite way to cook and eat them!

Ingredients

  • 2 oz pancetta (minced)
  • 2 lb brussels sprouts (weight after outer leaves and stems removed)
  • 1.5 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic (minced or sliced thin)
  • kosher salt and fresh ground pepper

Instructions

  • With a large sharp knife, finely shred the brussels sprouts after thoroughly washing.
  • In a deep heavy saute pan, sauté pancetta on medium-low heat until fat melts and pancetta becomes golden, about 5 minutes. Add olive oil and garlic and sauté until golden. Add shredded brussels sprouts, salt and pepper to taste and sauté on high heat for about 6 to 10 minutes, until tender crisp.
  • Makes about 7 cups.
