Thank you schlotz. That is the way I had them when I was little - got tired of them - too bland. This spruces them up a bit. Also, a very BIG "thank you" for #6 - We went to the store specifically for the sprouts and parmesan reggiano....the cheese never made it on the sprouts. - I will not confirm or deny, that a few adult beverages played any part of the cheese being forgotten.
Looks great,Love them,I make them similar but with water and no smoke but going to fix those little mistakes asap
The next time I do them I'm going to smoke them a little longer. That was the first time that I smoked them and I didn't want to overdo the smoke flavor.
We eat sprouts quite often and these sound delicious. Definitely going to give this a try.
POINT for a great idea.
I'm also going to try the apple juice since we always steam the sprouts.
Looks Great Denny!!
I didn't like them when I was a Kid, but I must have acquired a taste for them since!
LOL---Your post makes it look like the Delmonico is the side & the Sprouts are the main dish.
Thanks Gary, I would like to take credit for the recipe but it's not mine...although I did add the "smoke" to the recipe.
Thanks for the point!
Actually you are correct Bear, the sprouts were the main meal - I rarely think of having them and when I do, anything else turns into a side dish. Thanks for the point Bear!
I've never been able to tolerate brussel sprouts in any form, but my wife, and her extended family, that visit far too frequently, love them. So, to be accommodating, I've prepared them in countless forms, and still can't stand them. The closest I ever got to actually ever being able to tolerate them was when I trimmed, sliced, and sauteed them with some herbs, diced prosciutto, and authentic high quality balsamic vinegar. Then in struck me that all I was doing was "masking" the flavor of the cheap sprouts with very expensive prosciutto and balsamic. The wife and her family loved them, however, but I never did that again.
All that said, something occurred a several years ago that changed my attitude towards toward brussel sprouts, and no, it was not a recipe. I was reading an issue of "Scientific American" magazine on a long boring flight and there was an article regarding the difference in the DNA makeup of those who liked and disliked brussel sprouts. In short, it deals with the mutation of a specific gene, TAS2R38, and that those individuals who lack the gene variant that codes for the functioning taste receptor can eat the molecule it has evolved to interlock with, such as brussel sprouts, and won't know a thing about it. For those individuals who don't lack the variant, the reaction will be the opposite.
Well, since then, while everyone else at the table is eating brussel sprouts I can, without shame, eat something such as asparagus and , silently and smugly think that, maybe, just maybe, I might be genetically superior to all of them.
I couldn't find the article that I original read but the link below is another article which gives a brief description of the topic.
Kevin I am stealing this LOL only I am putting some Bacon on mine.
Denny that plate looks great to me thanks for the post Likes
Unfortunately brussel sprouts and I don't get along at all. Below is a representation of what happens when I've tried them in the past.
Thanks Richie. I think i'm going to try the sprouts with the apple juice this weekend to change it up.
I did the juice in my pot be careful it burns.I did mine with some bacon
