Braised Brussels Sprouts

Braised Brussels Sprouts

This low calorie side dish is easy to fix on stovetop, if you have a good cast iron skillet with a lid. The sprouts remain tender-crisp and full of flavor.

Serves 2-3.


  • 8 medium Brussels sprouts
  • 1/2 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1/8 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • dash cracked black pepper


  1. Trim Brussels sprouts and cut in half lengthwise.
  2. Preheat an 8-inch or larger cast iron skillet on medium low.
  3. Add oil, coating the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle with kosher salt.
  4. Arrange Brussels sprouts in a single layer, cut sides down. Cook 5-6 minutes, or until slightly charred on the bottom.
  5. Remove from heat and pour in vinegar. Cover and allow to stand 5 minutes more.
  6. Sprinkle with pepper and more kosher salt if desired. Serve hot or warm.
