Sweet Garlic Brussel Sprouts
Welcome to day two of #FreshTastyValentines! Today’s post almost didn’t happen, thanks to Mother Nature dropping over 30 inches (!!!) of white stuff last week. Since I had worked with T. Lish products before I had plans for the Sweet Garlic sauce that involved one of my favorite vegetables – but I needed my sauce. Thankfully the snow melted and mail service returned to normal and my sauces arrived. All I had to do was decide if I wanted to marinate the sprouts or start them off with some oil and then caramelize them in the sauce In the end, I decided to caramelize them since my better half does prefer his sprouts VERY well cooked.
2 tbsp olive oil
1 lb brussel sprouts, halved
2 cloves garlic, diced
1/3 cup T. Lish Sweet Garlic sauce
- Heat the olive oil in a deep saute pan over medium heat. Add the sprouts and garlic and continue cooking for 5-7 minutes allowing the leaves to brown.
- Turn heat to low and stir in the sweet garlic sauce, tossing well. Cook on low heat for another 5-7 minutes and then turn to medium high for a final 3 minutes.
- Once the outer leaves have started to caramelize, remove from heat and allow to sit in the remaining sauce for a minute before serving.
This recipe came together in record time – making it the perfect side dish for crazy night. The sweetness of the sauce goes perfectly with the slight tartness of the sprouts, making it hard to resist eating the entire dish. If by any chance you have any leftovers, heat them up in a sauce pan or toaster oven in order to preserve the crunch of the leaves. However I doubt there will be any left!
I received three T. Lish sauces for free as part of participating in FreshTastyValentines. All comments and opinions are my own!
