Caramelized Brussel Sprouts with Brown Butter

These days, Brussels sprouts are a pretty trendy ingredient. And everyone claims to have a recipe that will make even the most hardcore Brussels hater change their tune. Well, I am making that same claim now and my recipe for Caramelized Brussels sprouts with browned butter  has the added benefit of being ridiculously quick and easy. A hot pan caramelizes the sprouts in a matter of minutes and a little browned butter drizzled over makes them a delectable side dish. Even my Brussels-hating husband loves caramelized Brussels sprouts with brown butter!


1 tbsp coconut or vegetable oil

1/2 lb Brussels sprouts, washed, trimmed and cut in half

1/4 tsp kosher salt

1/4 tsp black pepper

2 tbsp salted butter

More salt and pepper to taste


Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering but not smoking.

Lay Brussels sprouts in a single layer cut-side down into pan and let cook until browned, about 2 minutes. Toss them quickly with a spatula, cover the pan and let cook another minute or two, until just becoming tender. 

Transfer sprouts to a medium bowl and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Add butter to the hot pan, reduce heat to medium, and let cook until browned and fragrant, 3 to 4 minutes.

Drizzle butter over sprouts and serve immediately. Add more salt and pepper to taste.

 *The recipe can easily be doubled but you may need to work in batches to caramelize the Brussels sprouts.

Serves: 2-3
