- 1 strip bacon, sliced into thin strips
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 shallot, minced
- 6 ounces Brussels sprouts (2 big handfuls)
- Pinch brown sugar
- Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
- Juice of 1/2 a lemon
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
Cook the bacon until crisp in a large skillet. Remove with a slotted spoon to a plate.
While the bacon is cooking, cut off the ends of the brussels sprouts. Then chop the Brussels sprouts in half. Lay them cut-side-down and finely chop until they are all shredded.
Add the garlic and shallots to the skillet and saute until fragrant and the shallots are soft, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the Brussels sprouts and saute until tender crisp, 3 to 5 minutes. Add a pinch of brown sugar. Season with salt and pepper and add the lemon juice. Saute for 1 minute more. Toss with the chopped parsley and bacon. Serve hot or at room temperature.
