Brussels Sprouts with Bacon and Shallots (Paleo)

Tonight’s dinner included Brussels Sprouts with Bacon and Shallots.  Recipe…

  • 6 slices of bacon cut in small pieces
  • 2 shallots, thinly sliced
  • 1 qt Brussels sprouts cleaned and halved
  • 1-2 T red wine or balsamic vinegar
  • Salt & Black pepper to taste

Clean the sprouts and either micro for 7-8 minutes or lightly steam.  Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook bacon to desired doneness (I prefer crisp for this recipe as the bacon will soften from vegetables).  Add shallots and stir, cooking for about 2 minutes.  Drain Brussels sprouts and add to pan, stirring to cover with onion/bacon.  Sprinkle with vinegar, add salt and freshly ground black pepper.  Stir again.  Cover the skillet and turn heat to low.  Allow to remain over low temperature for 10-15 minutes stirring every 5 minutes or so.  Enjoy!

  1. Thanks for the comments! Yes – microwaving the sprouts works well as does steaming. When I steam, I use a saucepan and a steamer insert on the stove. For this batch, I used the microwave.
