This is another vegetable that I didn't eat when I was a kid - my mother had an aversion to them when she was a child - and kept telling me and my sisters that brussel sprouts were used as a form of punishment at her dinner table as a child. Imagine my surprise a few years ago when she had some on the stove and professed her love for them with garlic! So.... it goes to show, cooked the right way you can eat almost anything - even if you bare childhood scars.
My frills? They love, love LOVE these too. And every time I've made them recently I always say I'll make more, but still, there never seems to be enough. It seems strange right? We're talking about brussel sprouts... Good thing it only takes about 20 minutes to make. Totally worth every minute.
500g brussel sprouts
2 tb olive oil
2 cloves garlic, finely diced
100g sliced pancetta, diced
3/4 cup chicken stock
Steam your brussel sprouts for about 5 minutes in the microwave or 10 minutes on the stove.
Meanwhile, heat oil in pan, add garlic and pancetta, and cook for about 1-2 minutes.
Add back the brussel sprouts and chicken stock. Place lid on pot and cook for a further 5 minutes.
