Pan-fried Brussels Sprouts with Red Capsicum

    25 minutes

    Pan-fried with colourful red capsicum, sprouts make a superb side dish to accompany lean meat or poultry for a simple weeknight dinner. Don't overcook them: stir-frying sliced Brussels sprouts until they are just crisp-tender is the way to go.

    This was really good. These veggies make a wonderful dish. I served it over spaghetti. Next time, I will omit the vinegar and use white wine. Thank you for the recipe.  -  05 Apr 2018


    husband looked at me like I was crazy when he saw me put this dish together. Didn't think I was crazy when he was finishing this dish off. Tasty and easy to put together. I let mine cook just a little longer because my mom likes Brussels sprouts more tender then crisp.  -  17 May 2013
