Why are these things considered edible?
Link Posted: 11/4/2009 9:27:09 AM EST
Butter helps.

A dying goat once ate one and lived an extra 15 minutes (although with a horrible bitter taste in its mouth).

Saute some in bacon grease and toss with a little brown mustard. They're like miniature cabbages and anything miniature is fun.

You mean Satan's balls? Inedible as hell!

I love em. Cook them up until they are really mushy. Butter, salt and OldBay. They rock

Only eat the really dark green ones. The pale green ones are bitter and nasty.

Steam them until they are as soft as mashed potatoes then top them with something.

Are you sure about that part in red?

I pickle them. salt, mustard, pepper, garlic cloves, balsamic vinegar, tobasco and some red wine. Parboil them for about 3-4 minutes, then keep them in the pickling mix for at least a week before eating. Awesome in a Bloody Mary.

Tossed lightly in some olive oil, salt, garlic, pepper, and some corriander then roasted in a 375 oven for about a half hour is tasty, throw some broccoli, and parsnip and rutabega in there too...

If you want an easy introduction, just get the Green Giant ones in the microwaveable bag in butter sauce.

They shouldn't be bitter. If they are, they weren't harvested at the right time.

Browned in a skillet then simmered with chicken stock equals great.
Link Posted: 11/4/2009 9:49:01 AM EST
They're fucking disgusting and I haven't eaten one since the last one I was forced to eat as a child.
Link Posted: 11/4/2009 9:50:17 AM EST
I love them the way my mother makes them: boiled, then served in a Hollandaise sauce.
Link Posted: 11/4/2009 9:50:23 AM EST
I use them instead of regular cabbage when making corned beef. Just throw them in the pot about 5 minutes prior to serving your corned beef and they are good to go.

I have eaten less than a dozen of these wretched things in my lifetime. The only thing to compare with how bad they taste is how bad they smell.

Love 'em. Cut off the stem and the outer leaves, steam them, add butter and salt.

They have to be cooked right..... if they are bitter you are doing it wrong

Boil them until their somewhat soft, then cover 'em with melted butter, garlic and a sprinkling of bread crumbs.

Butter, salt,pepper....and VINEGAR !

The sprouts you buy at the store are in no way like those youd grow in your own garden. Store stock isn't picked at the right point and mishandled the entire way. To understand how really good sprouts can be they must be picked in a timely way and served fresh.

I love them. They are a staple at our house. I like them raw, fresh out of the garden when in season.

You may find that you like them now. I used to hate both carrots and sweet potato's but recently found I love them.


Oh and brussel sprouts rock.
Link Posted: 11/4/2009 10:28:53 AM EST
Cut the ends off then cube the little buggers. Fry some salt pork. Put the cubed sprouts in a pan and cover with chicken stock. Add the salt pork and bring to a boil then simmer until they are as soft as you want.

Steam them, quarter them, drizzle with drawn butter and sauteed garlic.

Haven't tried the bacon grease thing but sounds promising.

Buy them fresh and still on the stalk.
Steam them with salt and pepper and then saute in butter.

Add truffle oil FTW!

(Truffle oil is sort of cheating, it would make an old shoe taste good.)

Brussels sprouts are very hardy and if you have deep snow cover they can overwinter in the garden. I used to harvest them in the snow during the winter. I like them pretty much every way that's been posted.

And all these years I thought it was just me that hated brussel sprouts.

Some have posted that you need to cook them in butter, bacon fat, etc.

You know what? DOG CRAP would taste good cooked in butter and bacon fat.

Shoot, steam them bad boys and put some sharp cheddar cheese on 'em, yummy!

Yummy.

Got some in the garden ready to pick this weekend. Steam them until they are almost done then cut in half and saute in a frying pan until they start getting crispy, finish them off with a little maple syrup drizzled over them, toss and serve.

Yup, this things are so good it's off the charts! Regular brussels sprouts take a bit more TLC though, but can be equally awesome if cooked right.
Link Posted: 11/4/2009 1:08:13 PM EST
I love them. Steam and add a little butter + salt for me.
