My friend Erik clued me in on a simple way to fix Brussels sprouts. I should mention, every time I type out Brussels sprouts I have to check to see if it was spelled correctly.
Start pan on medium heat with garlic olive oil ( I used this ), butter and pepper.
Slice Brussels sprouts down the middle from the top and place them all flat side down in the pan.
Put a lid on for 5-7 min to steam them.
Take off the lid and take em off when they are brown the way you like.
I actually let them cook on a lower heat for 30 minutes or so, then turned up the heat to brown.
