Ingredients

  • ● 8 oz Bacon

  • ● 2-3 lbs Brussels Sprouts

  • ● 3/4 cup Dried Cranberries, apple-juice sweetened

  • ● Splash Chicken or Vegetable Broth

  • ● Sea Salt to taste

  • ● Fresh Ground Black Pepper to taste

  • ● 3/4 cup Balsamic Vinegar

Directions

Add the balsamic vinegar to a small saucepan. Turn the heat up to medium and let simmer until reduced by about half. Do this first and it should be done by the time the sprouts are ready. 2. Using kitchen shears (or a knife, but using shears is much easier), cut the bacon into small pieces, about 1/2". 3. Place the bacon in a large, cold skillet. Turn heat up to medium-high and cook the bacon, stirring occasionally so it doesn't burn. 4. While the bacon is cooking, cut the bottom off each sprout (where it connected to the stem), remove the outer leaves, and cut in half (or quarter them if they're big). Set aside. 5. When the bacon is almost done (not all the way crispy, but close), remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Keep as much bacon grease in the pan as possible. 6. Add the Brussels sprouts to the pan with the bacon grease, reduce heat to medium, and stir to coat all sprouts with the bacon fat. If your bacon didn't produce much fat, add more if you have any reserved from previously cooking bacon, or add a bit of olive oil. You just need enough to make sure the sprouts aren't cooking in a dry pan. 7. Place a lid on the pan, and let cook for 5 minutes. Remove lid, stir sprouts and add a splash of broth. Put the lid back on and cook for another 5 minutes. 8. Remove the lid again, stir and check to be sure the sprouts are fork-tender. If not, cook a bit longer until they are. 9. Add the cooked bacon bits, cranberries, salt, and pepper to the pan. Stir to combine everything. 10. Serve hot with the balsamic reduction poured over it.
