Brussels Sprouts with Vinegar Glazed Red Onions

Brussels Sprouts with Vinegar Glazed Red Onions

1 basket brussels sprouts (about 10 ounces)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 small red onion, thinly sliced lengthwise
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

Trim outer leaves and stems from brussels sprouts, and discard. Bring a medium pot of water to a boil, and add salt. Meanwhile, prepare an ice-water bath.

Add brussels sprouts to boiling water, and cook until tender but still bright green, about 4 minutes. Remove from heat, drain, and plunge into ice-water bath to cool. Drain well, and cut in half.

Heat 1/2 tablespoon butter and 1/2 tablespoon olive oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add brussels sprouts, and cook, tossing occasionally, until they are brown and crisp on the edges, about 3 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and transfer to a large bowl. Cover with aluminum foil to keep warm.

Add remaining 1/2 tablespoon each butter and oil to the same pan over medium-low heat. Add onions, and cook, tossing occasionally, until wilted and transparent, about 3 to 4 minutes.

Add vinegar (stand back to avoid the fumes), and stir to loosen any brown bits on bottom of pan. Cook until vinegar is reduced and the onions are glazed, about 30 seconds. Add onions to brussels sprouts, and toss well. Serve immediately.
Garnish with toasted hazelnuts if desired.

Oh, dear, I almost missed this post, and it is perfect. My husband loves brussels sprouts and love balsamic, and I have a quite expensive bottle of the latter sitting on my sideboard right now. I'll let you know how it goes!

Claire, big brussels sprouts fan too. Wanted to give you a link to several recipes I posted here, but can't locate. Noticed there are several catagories now, side dishes, vegetarian & casseroles. So, I'm a little confused as to how to find it. Maybe someone can help. Hope you enjoy them.

Mish, I wish that I had this recipe last night when I was trying to think of a different way to cook Brussel sprouts.

That does sound really good! Thanks Claire for bringing it up! I haven't taken the time to read much past current posts. Imagine there are a lot of gems in the back pages.

I found the recipe on the net, & wanted to post the pic, as it made me drool too. Thinking about hanging it in my kitchen.

Sierra, I've got to go back thru all the terrific recipes posted here & print them out/save (w pic) & put it on the fridge, so I'll remember to make them next time.

mish, this recipe has been safely filed away in my recipe files. I looked for Brussel sprouts at the store today, but they were sold out. No Brussel sprout haters around here.

Thanks for the Rx Mish .... I never met a "sprout" I didn't like - even when my x-mil boiled them to mush.
