You know what I find funny? Whenever we do dinner parties, I always get asked to do the same dishes. I guess for sure it’s a total compliment. Sometimes, admittedly I get a bit bored with the same old same old. My guests, contrarily, LOVE it. Here is my recipe for candied Brussels.
Please note that I have never been a big measuring person so bare with me.
Take a package of fresh brussels and wash. Cut off stems and then cut into halves.
1 whole shallot cut into halves and the finely chopped
1 half hand full of light brown sugar
1 package of pancetta
approx 1 cup of water/chicken stock
5-6 dashes of balsamic vinegar
Brown off the pancetta until crispy in the pan. Add in the shallots and stir until they start sweating and then add brown sugar and balsamic vinegar. Finally add brussels and add the water. Stir and evenly spread all ingredients together on medium high heat. Let the brussels start to caramelize and then turn and mix for the other side to it. The combination should have this sweet and savory taste.
It’s truthfully that easy my friends. Good Luck and Bon Appetite!!
