- Roasted brussel sprouts in cast iron pan
- This is the best roasted brussel sprout recipe
10 brussel sprouts
1/2 teaspoon truffle salt
1/4 red onion
1 tablespoon of black or white truffle oil
1 jalapeno pepper
Put your cast iron frying pan in the oven and heat the oven to 450 degrees. Cut the hard white ends off the brussel sprouts and then cut them in half and put them in a metal bowl. Cut about 1/4 of a red onion into strips as shown in the pictures above and add them to the metal bowl. Thinly slice and then chop a small amount of jalapeno pepper until you have about 1 teaspoon. Use more or less according to your own tastes. Add the jalapeno to the bowl. Add 2 tablespoons of black truffle oil or white truffle oil over the brussel sprouts in the bowl. Add the truffle salt to the bowl and mix everything together to be sure the red onion and brussel sprouts are coated in the truffle oil and truffle salt.
Once the oven reaches 450 degrees then add everything from the metal bowl into the pan and be sure that it all spreads out so that no brussel sprouts are on top of each other. The heat will cause some sizzling and it may splatter a little so be sure you have heat proof gloves on. Leave it in the oven until you see the outer leaves turning dark brown or black. The brussel sprouts will look burned and they will not taste that way they will taste caramelized. Once you see the brussel sprouts have become darkened as shown in the picture above on the right then it’s ready to serve.
Alternate method: Do everything as shown above and once the brussel sprouts have the right color put them on serving plates. Now put the cast iron pan on the stove top empty and set to medium high heat and add two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar. This will splatter and boil so be sure you have heat proof gloves. Mix the apple cider vinegar. around in the pan and it will deglaze the pan taking the caramelized brussel sprout parts that were left behind and it will turn that into a nice sauce. Scoop up the sauce and drizzle it over the brussel sprouts and then serve.
