Define cooking term "brs"

What does the term brs refer to?
It was used in a recipe referring to the amounts of herbs.

I have no idea. Can you figure it out from the context? If it's something like rosemary, it might mean branches.

I agree a sprig or small stem of parsley or whatever.

It could have been a typo as well.

If it's a French recipe, it probably stands for "brindilles," which essentially means stalks or sprigs.
