Easy Garlic Butter Sauteed Brussels Sprouts

Ok, hands down these Easy Garlic Butter Sauteed Brussels Sprouts are THE BEST way to enjoy Brussels sprouts. The first time I tried these was the last time I tried any other way of preparing them (ok, there was one time I made a cream of brussels sprout soup, but that’s IT).

  • 700 g (1½lb) Brussels sprouts
  • 3 garlic cloves crushed
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp hot or red pepper flakes
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Cut the brussels sprouts in half using a sharp knife.
  2. Any browning outer leaves should be snapped off and discarded. Set aside the garlic, which has been finely chopped or minced.
  3. On medium heat, heat a frying pan.
  4. After that, add the halved brussels sprouts and a tablespoon of olive oil. Salt & pepper to taste.
  5. Allow the sprouts to caramelize while sautéing, tossing often.
  6. Stir in the butter, garlic, and chili flakes after the vegetables are crisp-tender (I use up to a half teaspoon for a nice spicy bite).
  7. Cook for a further 4-5 minutes, or until the sprouts are cooked through (the tip of a sharp knife can easily be pushed into them).
  8. Season with salt & pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice to taste, then serve.
