2cupsbrussel sprouts- cleanedtrimmed, and cut in half
1-3clovesgarlic- thinly sliced
about 1 tablespoon of olive oil or bacon grease
salt and pepper to taste
use a pan large enough to fit all of the brussel sprouts in a single layer- for two cups I use a 12 inch cast iron skillet.
preheat the pan over medium low heat, add the oil and swirl to coat the pan, then add the garlic and cook until tender but not yet browned (about two minutes)
remove the garlic from the pan leaving the oil and increase the heat to medium. Add the brussel sprouts and cook until tender and nicely browned on both sides, flipping halfway through the cooking process. This should take about five minutes a side, if they are browning within the first 1-2 minutes the heat is too high. Some of the leaves will ‘pop’ off and get crispy- leave them in or snack on them before you plate up.
When the sprouts are browned to your liking decrease the heat again and add the garlic back in the pan. If the brussel sprouts are still too crisp for you cover the pan and cook on warm for another few minutes until they reach the desired softness. Cook until the garlic is just browned
