1 tablespoon olive oil, plus 3 tablespoons more for frying

1 shallot, chopped 

1/2 cup pure maple syrup 

1/3 cup apple cider vinegar 

1/2 cup fresh or frozen cranberries, thawed 

1 pound Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved 

1 teaspoon kosher salt 


  1. Heat a small saucepan over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon of the oil and heat another 30 seconds. Add the shallot and cook, stirring often for about 2 minutes or until soft and fragrant. Add the maple syrup and the vinegar and bring to a simmer. Simmer for 15 minutes to reduce slightly. Remove from the heat and stir in the cranberries.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the remaining 3 tablespoons olive oil and warm another minute. Add the Brussels sprouts to the pan and cook undisturbed for about 3 minutes or until browned and beginning to soften. Season with the salt. Stir the sprouts and cook another 3 minutes to continue cooking. Stir again and cook another 3 minutes to brown evenly. Add the maple mixture to the pan and toss well to coat. Bring to a simmer to reduce the glaze slightly, another 2 minutes. Serve warm.
