How to make it

  • Trim hard ends from brussel sprouts and cut a cross up into each end.
  • Boil in salted water for 15 m, or until you can easily stick a knife into them. Leave the lid off so that they stay nice and green.
  • Remove from the water, and cut into thick slices, top to stem, the way you slice mushrooms, 3-4 slices per sprout.
  • Heat fat of choice in a non-stick saute pan, and add sprouts.
  • Cook over fairly high heat, stirring gently with two wooden spoons, so that some surfaces start to become pleasantly browned.
  • At this point, sprinkle in the brown sugar, and continue to stir and cook, perhaps another two minutes, but less if they start to get too dark.
  • Salt to taste.
