SAUTED BRUSSEL SPROUTS WITH BACON & ONIONS

 
 

INGREDIENTS

4 slices bacon, finely chopped
2 ounces onion, coarsely chopped, a generous 1/3 cup  
1 pound fresh brussel sprouts, about 12 ounces after trimming  
1/2 cup water  
1/2 teaspoon salt  
1 tablespoon butter  
1 tablespoon lemon juice  
Salt and pepper, to taste 

INSTRUCTIONS

Prepare the brussel sprouts by trimming the stem ends and any discolored leaves. Cut in half through the stem. In a 12-inch skillet, cook the bacon and onion over medium-low heat until the bacon is crisp and the onion is browned, about 10 minutes. Drain on a paper towel lined plate. Add the Brussels sprouts, water and 1/2 teaspoon salt to the skillet; increase the heat to medium. Cover and simmer until the brussel sprouts are bright green, about 5-6 minutes. Uncover the pan and cook until the liquid has evaporated and the sprouts are tender, about 3 minutes. Turn off the heat and stir in the bacon, butter and vinegar. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Makes 4 servings . Can be frozen for use as meal prep.
