Ingredients

    1 tbls. Canola Oil
    1 large red onion, sliced thin
    1 lb. Brussels Sprouts, rinse and slice in half from stem to top
    1.5 tbls. unsalted butter
    4 tbls. (or to taste) balsamic vinegar

Directions

In the largest, preferably well-seasoned cast iron skillet you have, saute the red onions in the canola oil until they carmelize (they will reduce down to a small mass). Empty into bowl.
Add butter to skillet, and place sprouts, cut-side down, in the butter over medium high-heat to brown them (depending on the size of the skillet, you may need to break up this process into 2-4 batches - split butter to accommodate this). When all sprouts are well-browned, add onions back to pan, and add vinegar. Cover immediately to catch steam and steam until sprouts are tender but not mushy - about 5 minutes.
This is a GREAT Thanksgiving side dish!
Serves 6-8 (recipe calculated for 6).
