  • 1 lb. Brussels sprouts chopped
  • 1 clove garlic minced, about 1/2 tsp.
  • 2 tsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. black pepper


  • Heat the oil in a heavy skillet over medium heat.
  • Add the onions, Brussels sprouts, and garlic, and sauté for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sprouts are lightly browned and very tender.
  • Add the vinegar, salt, and pepper, and continue cooking for about 5 more minutes, stirring occasionally, and reducing the heat if the sprouts are getting too deeply browned.

Slow Cooker Directions

  • Add Brussels sprouts and onions to the slow cooker, toss with oil, garlic, vinegar, salt, and pepper, and stir to combine. Cook on low for 5 - 6 hours or on high for 2 ½ - 3 hours.
