2 pounds brussels sprouts (trim stems)
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
6 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup (low-sodium) chicken broth
1 tsp course ground black pepper
3/4 cup parmesan cheese
Use slicing blade in food processor to chop up brussels sprouts, then separate with fingers.
Melt butter and olive oil in large skillet (need a pretty good sized skillet). Add garlic and saute for a few minutes (maybe 2-3 minutes)
Add brussels sprouts and saute until "just" starting to get slightly tender (maybe 4-5 minutes). Toss frequently for even saute.
Turn heat up high and put in the chicken broth and cover the skillet. Cook for about 2 minutes and broth should be gone or virtually gone.
Add salt, pepper and parmesan cheese and toss to coat evenly.
Number of Servings: 8

Made this tonight - was pretty good. I went a little overboard with the food processor, and the sprouts ended up pretty well shredded - like cole slaw. It still worked well with the recipe and turned out to be a unexpectedly great way to cook sprouts! Will make again. - 11/19/08
Does this only work with fresh, or do you think frozen would work too?
Sounds yummy! - 11/15/08

I suspect only fresh ones. Frozen ones would probably get mushy because of the ice embedded in them when you tried to saute. I get a big bag of fresh ones from Costco. You could also check a local farmer's market.
