Brown Butter Brussels Sprouts

5 Stars 4 Stars 3 Stars 2 Stars 1 Star No reviews


Tender brussels sprouts made with delicious brown butter.


  • 23 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 medium shallots (sliced)
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 2 pounds brussels sprouts, halved (or quartered if they’re large)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter


  1. Heat oil in a large sauce pan over medium/high heat. Add the shallots and cook for about 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the garlic, brussels sprouts, salt and pepper. Cook for about 12-15 minutes or until desired tenderness.
  2. While brussels sprouts are cooking, make the brown butter. Heat butter in a small sauce pan over medium heat. Begin to whisk as the butter starts to bubble. After about 2-3 minutes you will see small brown bits appear on the bottom of the pan, and the butter will begin to turn a golden brown color (and smell divine). Remove from heat immediately and set aside.
  3. When brussels sprouts are done cooking, turn off heat and pour the brown butter over top, tossing to coat. Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper and serve immediately!
