Brussels Sprout With Mustard And Honey

Labels: { , }

This is inspired by Tracie Moo on Bitter Sweet Flavours.
Brussels sprouts, or Brassica oleracea gemmifera, are related to other better-known vegetables in the Brassica genus like broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower. They are part of the cruciferae or mustard family, so known because of a four-part flower in the shape of a cross.
Brussels sprouts are a very good source of many essential vitamins, fiber, and folate. They are especially high in Vitamin C. They, along with their other cruciferous cousins, have been shown to have some very beneficial effects against certain types of cancer, as they contain many different ingredients that are believed to help prevent the disease.

  • 350 g Brussels sprout
  • 3 Shallot, finely sliced
  • 2 tbsp Duck fat
  • 1 Fresh chilli, sliced
  • 2 tbsp Honey
  • 3 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 4 tbsp Water
  • Salt and black pepper
  1. Wash the Brussels sprouts well. Trim the stem ends and remove any yellowing leaves. Cut in half from stem to top. Finely sliced the shallot. Mix the honey, mustard and 3 tablespoons of water in a small bowl. Set aside.
  2. Heat the duck fat in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in sliced shallots until fragrant. Add in Brussels sprouts and sprinkle salt, pepper and a tablespoon of water over, stir, cover, and cook for roughly 5 minutes.
  3. Pour in the prepared mustard sauce, stirring to combine. Cook until most of liquid evaporates and sprouts are tender but still bright green, 3-5 minutes. Add in sliced chillies and toss all together. Season with salt and pepper.

I just bought some brussel sprouts to try for the first time. Gonna roast them. Your version with mustard and honey sounds delish!

Christine Ho 23/12/09 12:42

Wow, love your creative idea of cooking this dish. Great combination of Dijon mustard and honey with the Brussels sprouts. I've ever tried before, yet I think I could finish the whole dish by myself.

I think it's great that you use duck fat in this recipe. It helps the brussel sprout to caramelize, which makes it so yummy! And everybody loves the flavors of mustard and honey together!

Food For Tots 23/12/09 17:10

This looks great! One of my new year's resolutions is to eat more vegetables that I always say I don't like. I've found out that my taste buds like things that didn't use to like so much before so I'm going to go get some brussels sprouts and make this! :)

Unknown 14/1/10 16:15

This looks terrific. I grew up loving brussels sprouts but hubby doesn't do well with them so I stopped making them, until recently when I make them as a treat, for myself. This looks like a wonderful addition to my recipes. I am printing it now so I won't forget it.

Lucy 24/4/10 21:42

I just cooked this and had it for dinner. It was pure awesomeness that even my friend who hates brussels sprouts with a passion, couldn't help but love what I cooked. Thank you Angie! =)
