Engaging in a conversation about Brussels sprouts often leads to disagreement.  Possibly exasperation. Many strong opinions here, love/hate, roasted vs. sauteed, whole vs. halved vs. sliced, shredded vs. “petals.”  I love them all ways — my family has differing opinions. 

This recipe pleased three out of four of us, and to paraphrase Meatloaf (the singer, not the food), and simultaneously date myself, three out of four ain’t bad.  (Really, with Brussels sprouts, I’m just happy if I get one ally in the voting).

Using Pre-Shredded or Pre-Sliced Brussels Sprouts

Now that pre-sliced or pre-shredded Brussels sprouts are so readily available, this can be pulled together very quickly as part of a weeknight meal.  But I would (and will) serve these as part of some of the holidays dinners coming down the pike.

The tossing with some citrus juices gives the dish flavor and lift, and I love the pop of those little mustard seeds.  I cook with mustard all of the time, but I forget about mustard seeds for patches of time.  Then I get to re-discover them, and become happy all over again.  I could absolutely eat this entire recipe over the course of a day.  But I have to say “serves 6 to 8” because I need to acknowledge normal people.

What to Serve with Sautéed Brussels Sprouts

Serve them with Dijon and Honey Crusted Pork Tenderloins, Mediterranean Braised Lamb Shoulder Chops, or Roast Beef with Mustard Garlic Crust and Horseradish Sauce for a great autumn or winter dinner.
