Number of Servings: 8


    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
    1tsp sald
    1 tsp course ground black pepper
    3/4 cup parmesan cheese


Trim stems on brussels sprouts, and rinse clean.

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.

    This is my new favorite way to cook Brussels Sprouts. I LOVED them with the parmesan cheese. - 3/11/13

    Very Good
    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

    This sounds like a really interesting dish! I had an amazing brussel sprout salad about a week ago and have been craving them ever since! I can't wait to try this recipe. Thank you! - 11/18/08

    Does this only work with fresh, or do you think frozen would work too?
    Sounds yummy!

    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.
