About the Pan Roasted Brussels Sprouts Recipe Ingredients:

Detailed measurements and instructions can be found on the printable recipe card at the bottom of the page. Instructions with photos can be found directly below.

Bacon – You can use Pancetta in place of the bacon.

Brussels Sprouts – Make sure you get these guys a good sear by getting them all some time cut side down in the pan.

Lemon – Adds a little acidic brightness to balance the heaviness of the bacon fat. Red Wine Vinegar would also work here.

Pomegranate juice – Helps to tie this dish together and makes an incredible glaze. You can also use cranberry juice in a pinch.

Pomegranate – Dried cranberries will also work in a pinch. A medium pomegranate will give you about 1 cup of seeds.
