Are you a fan of Brussels Sprouts? Even if you’re NOT, I urge you to give this Chef AJ recipe a try. It changed my whole outlook on this cruciferous vegetable which has vitamins, fiber and cancer-fighting phytochemicals.
I took a shortcut by using ‘steamer’ bags of Brussels sprouts rather than boiling raw ones. Once cooked in the steamer bag, I did cut them in half to make them bite size. Then I threw them in a sauce pan with the braised onions (I didn’t have shallots on hand) and the sauce, which thickened nicely to a delicious glaze.

A man walked into the doctor’s office with a tomato on his nose and a carrot in one ear. “Doctor”, he asked, “what’s wrong with me?” That’s easy, the doc replied – you’re not eating right.
OK, enough of that.
