This sautéed Brussels sprout leaves with pastrami recipe is so packed with flavor that even those Brussels sprouts haters, and you know who I mean, will want to eat these.
I don’t make Brussels sprouts as often as I would like. I’m the only one in our family who likes this vegetable. Am I crazy? Brussels sprouts are so healthy. I even love to use Brussels sprouts in salads like this Shaved Brussels Sprout and Apricot Salad recipe.
Why do they get such a negative rap?
This is my latest attempt at a Brussels sprout recipe. If I can find a way to cook these little vegetables, I won’t get the complaints and whining…maybe. Everyone loves pastrami, so why not try it in this easy side dish recipe?
With the holidays coming up, I really wanted to create some unique side dishes that were quick and easy to make. With family, guests, and a huge amount of cooking in just a few short days, having a tasty recipe that can be made with little effort is king.”
Well, I got my son to try this, and he liked it, but I suspect it is all of the pastrami I added in. The pastrami gave this dish a fun saltiness to the Brussels sprouts. He is a big meat lover and pastrami is one of his lunchbox staples for school days. My husband ate it without complaint. I didn’t even ask my daughter to try them…she is the picky one.
How would you make Brussels sprouts so that your family would gobble them up?
