You will love these balsamic glazed brussel sprouts, because they are ready in just ten minutes, using only one pan. Nate used to serve a similar version of these brussel sprouts while working as a Sous Chef. At the time he was working for the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills.
Nate wanted to recreate a similar loved and memorable flavor. Not only are they simple to make, but they are incredibly flavorful. Also, this recipe makes a great side dish or snack. These brussel sprouts begin by caramelizing in olive oil, and then glazing in balsamic. As the glaze sizzles down, smells of toasted almond slices float through the air. If you’re ready to experience these grab your pan! You only need 1!
How to Sear Brussel Sprouts
One of the best things about brussel sprouts is the caramelized flavors that are produced. Brussel sprouts can be really good when cooked right, but they can also taste bad if not cooked properly. Here we are gonna show you the perfect way to sear brussel sprouts. After you learn this technique, you will be more confident in not only your cooking skills, but your willingness to eat brussel sprouts.
When searing brussel sprouts in a pan, it is SUPER IMPORTANT for the pan as well as the oil preheated. Also, this will give a nice caramelized flavor. Once the oil is hot, we sear the brussel sprouts on the side that we cut for two minutes. Once you have crispy golden brussel sprouts on the sliced side, turn to the other side. You can gently check using a spatula or tongs to figure out that perfect sear time. This process will take about 4 minutes. Then add the almonds into the pan and toast for 30 seconds. In addition, glazing the brussel sprouts will take about 2-3 minutes.
Glazed Brussel Sprouts
First, notice how shiny these brussels look glazing in the pan. In addition, once you add the balsamic vinegar to the pan, you will notice the smell permeates the air. Also, roasted brussels will sizzle with toasted almonds, and nutty tangy vinegar smells will be wafting all around. Next, allow the vinegar to reduce in the pan, while absorbing into the brussel sprouts. Also, the sprouts will become a bit soft to the touch. Last but not least, enjoy these balsamic glazed brussel sprouts with almonds immediately!
