Ingredients for Caramelized Brussel Sprouts with Apples and Pecans

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus additional to finish
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 pound Brussels sprouts, outer leaves removed, quartered
  • 1 honeycrisp apple, cored, halved, diced
  • 3 tablespoons sherry vinegar
  • 1 cup pecans, halved, toasted, chopped
  • 2-3 tablespoons Manuka honey
  • 1/2 cup parsley leaves
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions for Caramelized Brussel Sprouts with Apples and Pecans

  1. Serves: 4-6. Time: 30 to 45 minutes.
  2. Heat a large cast iron skillet with olive oil and butter over medium-high heat. Add Brussels sprouts, season with salt and pepper, and cook until the sprouts just begin to caramelize, which takes about 4-5 minutes.
  3. Add apples and toss to combine, and cook until the apples and Brussels sprouts are caramelized and almost tender but still have bite, which will take another 3-4 minutes.
  4. Remove from the heat, add the sherry vinegar, pecans, Manuka honey, and parsley. Quickly toss to combine, season with salt and pepper, and remove to a platter. Drizzle with olive oil to finish if one so desires.
  5. Quick Tip: To save time, precut your Brussels sprouts and place in a zip-top bag with one or two damp paper towels the day before you before you intend to serve them.
  6. Once you are ready to serve, enjoy your Caramelized Brussel Sprouts with Apples and Pecans!
