Want to know the best way to get someone to eat brussel sprouts? Add bacon!

I use chopped pancetta in this recipe because I can buy a package of it at Trader Joe's and it's inexpensive. You can easily substitute bacon here.

I also buy bags of shredded brussel sprouts at Trader Joe's. You can shred your own or just cut them in half.

How to Make Shredded Brussel Sprouts with Pancetta

Step-by-Step

  • 1Add a few Tablespoons of olive oil to a stainless steel skillet or fry pan. Add the pancetta or bacon and brown until crispy. Remove from pan and let rest on a paper towel to soak up some of the grease.
  • 2While the pancetta is in the pan. Chop the shallot and garlic. Add to the pan once pancetta is removed. Saute shallots and garlic for a minute or two. Try not to let the garlic burn.
  • 3Add the two bags of shredded brussel sprouts (or halves if you chopped the sprouts yourself). Add a little more olive oil and mix it up in the pan. Put the lid on, but leave it cracked. This will help the brussel sprouts cook a little quicker.
  • 4I don't like soggy sprouts, so I steam for a few minutes until they're just tender. Add cracked black pepper to taste and mix. Return the pancetta to the pan.
  • 5Shake about a teaspoon of the hickory smoked vinegar onto the mixture and mix. Add more if you want a smokier flavor. You could also substitute cider vinegar here (it will be sweeter) or even use a few dashes of Worcestershire sauce.
  • 6Transfer mixture to a serving dish and enjoy.
