Your Recipe of the Day: Shredded Brussel Sprouts

March 25, 2008

They’re not so much shredded as sliced….uh….widthwise?  But they fall apart and look like they’re shredded.

Anyway, this is very simple:

Melt some butter in a big pan and throw in the heaping mound.  It’ll look like it all won’t fit but it’ll reduce.  Fry or saute or whatever you want to call it for a while, and eventually throw in a bunch of chopped garlic, salt, and pepper.  And just keep it going for however done you want it, but I like my brussel sprouts pretty done.  There might be some reason for putting in the salt earlier to draw out extra moisture, but whatever.  And may want to do the garlic first but it might burn.

I’m not a chef but I watch a lot of Alton Brown.
