Sweet and Sour Brussel Sprouts

These Brussels Sprouts have a sweet and tart taste making them the perfect side dish for your holiday meal. 

We have this green bean recipe that has a sweet and sour taste. I thought I would mix it up and make the sauce with Brussels sprouts. If you think about it not a lot of people really like them. My father for a long time would not eat them. He said he couldn’t get past the smell. They are like little heads of cabbage so when they start to cool down they kind of smell like cabbage too. When served and eaten hot, they are delicious roasted. I decided to up the taste factor by adding the sweet and sour flavor and make them over the top delicious.

This is now how we make our Brussels Sprouts. Everyone who tries them absolutely loves them, and so will you.

Sweet and Sour Brussels Sprouts


1 1/2 pounds Brussel Sprouts

2 tablespoon butter

1 tablespoon olive oil

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon brown sugar

3 tablespoons Cider Vinegar

2 tablespoons bread crumbs


Clean and trim the outer leaves of the sprouts and then cut them in half. Put them in a cast iron skillet with the butter and olive oil, salt and pepper. Cook on medium until the butter melts mixing often to coat them for about 10 minutes. Add the brown sugar and vinegar and cook another 10 minutes.  Remove from the stove and toss with bread crumbs.


Peace be with you,
