3 1/2 cups


  • 3 slices applewood-smoked or regular bacon, coarsely chopped

  • 1 medium onion, cut into thin wedges

  • 4 cup small Brussels sprouts, trimmed (halved, if large)

  • ½ cup reduced-sodium chicken broth

  • 2 tablespoon coarse ground or Dijon-style mustard

  • 2 tablespoon maple syrup


  1. Use a 6-qt. electric or stove-top pressure cooker. Set electric cooker on sauté setting or place stove-top cooker over medium heat and cook bacon, uncovered, just until crisp, stirring occasionally. Drain on paper towels, reserving 1 Tbsp. drippings in cooker. Add onion to reserved drippings; cook, uncovered, 2 minutes or until onion begins to soften, stirring occasionally. Add Brussels sprouts and broth.

  2. Lock lid in place. Set electric cooker on high pressure to cook 3 minutes. For stove-top cooker, bring up to pressure over medium-high heat; reduce heat enough to maintain steady (but not excessive) pressure. Cook 3 minutes. Remove from heat. For both models, quickly release pressure. Open lid carefully.

  3. Drain sprouts mixture in a colander; transfer to a serving bowl. Add mustard and maple syrup; toss to coat. Stir in bacon.
