I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
Spicy Garlic Brussels Sprouts
...in your mind.

Spicy Garlic Brussels Sprouts

Come on now, brussel sprouts have been made fun of for too long. Maybe you just need a better way of cooking them? Hey, here’s an idea, try this!


  • 1/2 pound Brussels sprouts
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  1. Trim sprouts to remove ugly outer leaves - if the sprouts are large, cut in quarters - if small cut in half
  2. Steam over boiling water until tender - about 10 minutes, then drain
  3. Heat olive oil and garlic in small pan until fragrant, but do not burn
  4. Add sprouts & pepper flakes and stir until they begin to brown, maybe 2 minutes
  5. Add balsamic, brown sugar - stir for a minute, remove and serve
