The Perfect Brussels Sprouts

The Perfect Brussels Sprouts don’t take much effort!
Now the way to make The Perfect Brussels Sprouts is to cook them in boiling water first and then finish them in a hot pan with some olive oil. This will give them a quick crisp flavor and they will be just perfect!

It’s important that you do not over boil them, because they will end up mushy and it will be unpleasant to eat. I like to peel mine because I know that they will be fresher and the middle won’t be brown. It’s super easy to prepare them yourself – simply cut the bottom of the sprout and then trim off the side a little bit and that’s it!
Takes 2 seconds!
Of course, you can buy pre-peeled ones, but they will cost you slightly more!

Now simply boil them, then heat a frying pan with some olive way and get it hot.
Drain the just cooked brussels sprouts and drop them in the hot frying pan, making sure you turn them and mix them constantly so that they don’t burn.
You will know that they are ready when they turn golden.
They are perfect for your Christmas table, or just as garnish to your meal!

Serves 4



500g of Brussels Sprouts

2 tablespoons of olive oil

1. Bring a deep pan of water to the boil and drop your peeled Brussels sprouts. Cook for about 10 minutes, or until just soft enough when you pierce them with a fork. Drain, and set aside.

2. Heat a frying pan with the olive oil and then drop the boiled Brussels sprouts with the salt and cook, but making sure you constantly turn them so that they don’t burn and cook evenly. You will know when they are ready because they will turn golden. It shouldn’t take more than 4-5 minutes.
