Sauteed Brussels Sprouts with Shallots

Brussels sprouts are a favorite veggie of mine.  Sadly, so many people dislike them that I often feel out on a limb when I sing their praises. These tasty little cabbages deserve a better rep, and better cooking too. This easy recipe treats them just right. 


1. In a medium saucepan, bring some salted water to a boil.  Add the sprouts, and boil for 3 minutes.  Reserve a cup of cooking water, then drain and run the sprouts under cold water.  Cut into quarters through the root end.


2. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the sprouts and cook, stirring occasionally until they begin to turn a light golden brown.  About 10 minutes.


3. Move the sprouts to the outer edges of the pan, and add the shallot to the center of pan, along with 1 tablespoon of reserved cooking water.  Cook until caramelized, then stir with the sprouts.  Continue cooking until the sprouts are browned, about another 5 minutes.  Serve immediately.
