Brussels sprouts with caramelized red onions
Health Highlights
Tender Brussels sprouts fried in butter and served with caramelized red onions is a wonderful side dish.


121 gm Butter, unsalted
1 medium Red onion
1 tbsp Red wine vinegar
454 gm Brussels sprouts
1 dash Salt and pepper


  1. 1 Divide the onions into wedges and fry in butter on medium heat for 5–10 minuter.
  2. 2 The onions should turn golden, but not burned. Add the vinegar and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. 3 Lower the heat some and continue to sauté the onion while stirring. Place on a plate.
  4. 4 Cut the Brussel sprouts in half, depending on their size. If they are small, you can fry them whole.
  5. 5 Fry the Brussel sprouts in the same frying pan with more butter until they have turned a nice color and a little soft. Use a knife or a pin to check. They're best served "al dente".
  6. 6 Salt and pepper. Add the onions and stir.
