Maple-Cranberry Brussels Sprouts
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4
  • 2 lbs brussels sprouts, ends removed and halved
  • 2 tablespoons solid cooking fat (Bacon grease is particularly yummy here, but you could use coconut oil, tallow, lard, or duck fat)
  • 1 cup fresh cranberries, halved
  • ½ tablespoon maple syrup (optional)
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon lemon zest
  • Squeeze of lemon juice
  1. Shred the brussels sprout halves into long strips; set aside.
  2. Heat the fat in the bottom of a skillet on medium-high heat. When the pan is hot and the fat has melted, add the brussels sprouts and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned.
  3. Add the cranberries, maple syrup, and sea salt to the pan and cook, stirring, for another three minutes, or until sprouts are just tender. Add the zest as well as a squeeze of lemon and serve warm.
