Slow cooked brussels sprouts
Lost in my dining legend was a meal to Donovan's in Melbourne. The food was fantastic but the brussels sprouts were out of this world. Since then I have tried to recreate that recipe with limited success, until now. No matter what you think about brussels sprouts you absolutely totally must try this recipe. Actually, if you hate brussels sprouts then you most definitely should try this.
2 tbspns olive oil
500g brussels sprouts, trimmed & halved
3 tbspns butter
3 tbspns finely chopeed shallots
3/4 cup of chicken stock
Heat the oil over high heat in a large fry pan.
Add the sprouts and brown all over.
Season very very well with salt (Don't scrimp)
Remove the sprouts from the pan and reduce the heat
Add the butter and melt then add the shallots and saute for 2 minutes.
Add the sprouts back with the stock, cover and reduce heat to medium low.
Cook for 20-30 minutes until sprouts are just tender.
Remove the lid, increase heat and cook off any remaining liquid.
