Pan-Roasted Brussels Sprouts
Ingredients
2
pounds Brussels sprouts, halved lengthwise
1
tablespoon rice oil or olive oil
7
cloves garlic, minced
3
tablespoons butter
1/2
bunch fresh thyme (about 10 sprigs)
1
large sprig fresh rosemary, halved
2
teaspoons fennel seeds
1 1/4
teaspoons kosher salt or 1 tsp. salt
1
tablespoon sherry or white wine vinegar
Directions
  1. In a large saucepan cook Brussels sprouts, uncovered, in enough lightly salted boiling water to cover for 3 minutes; drain well. Pat dry with paper towels.
  2. Place a very large heavy skillet or saute pan over high heat for 1 to 2 minutes. Reduce heat to medium. Add oil and garlic; cook and stir 2 minutes. Add half the butter. Increase heat to medium-high; carefully arrange half the sprouts, cut-sides down, in the hot skillet. Top with half the thyme, rosemary, fennel seeds, and salt. Cook, uncovered, 3 to 4 minutes or until the sprouts are well-browned. Remove sprouts from pan. Repeat with remaining butter, sprouts, thyme, rosemary, fennel seeds, and salt.
  3. Return all sprouts to skillet along with sherry. Quickly toss to distribute flavors. Makes 8 (1/2-cup) servings plus leftovers.
