Beer Brussel Sprouts With Bacon and Onions


* 1 pkg. of fresh brussel sprouts (or frozen if you want)
* 1 medium onion (diced/chopped up)
* 2-3 slices of bacon (chopped up)
* powdered garlic (or 1 chopped garlic clove if you prefer)
* 6 oz of beer (one that floats your boat)

Begin boiling a pot of water. You want to make sure you pot is the correct size so that your sprouts are covered by water while cooking.

Wash your fresh brussel sprouts off and place in boiling water. Bring temperature down half and place lid on pot to cook. You want to cook your brussel spouts until tender.

When they are done, drain and set aside to cool.

In a medium pan heated to medium heat, toss in your chopped bacon and onions. You should not be necessary to use any oil as long as you do not cook the bacon too quickly. Saute until bacon is completely cooked and onions become tender. Add garlic and cook for another 2-3 minutes (add a couple minutes of you are using fresh garlic).

Beer time! Slowly pour 1/2 of the beer you have set aside. Make sure to stir well for 1 minute.

Stir your brussel sprouts to your mix. Pour in the other 1/2 of your beer on top of the sprouts. Stir all together for 1 minute. Cover. Cook on low for 10-15 minutes.

Plate and enjoy! I made this recipe to enjoy with another recipe: BACON WRAPPED ‘CUBED’ RIBEYE STEAK


* You have many opportunities to make adjustments to this recipe. You can chose to use more or less bacon, any flavor of bacon, and any type of beer you wish.

* This was my first attempt at this recipe and I am open to any suggestions or ideas on how to improve it.
