Recipe of the Week: Grilled Brussels Sprouts

One of my favorite guilty pleasures is watching Sam the Cooking Guy on YouTube.  He used to have a show on the Cooking Channel, but has since moved to his own YouTube channel.  Check him out, he's fabulous (if you live in the Southern California area, he's on COX TV).

I love Brussels Sprouts and cook them quite often in the fall and winter, but recently I saw Sam grill them and I absolutely loved the idea of serving them in the summer months with grilled steak or chicken.


Grilled Brussels Sprouts - Sam the Cooking Guy


2 cups Brussels sprouts, peeled and halved
1 cup water
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
salt and pepper
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard


Preheat Grill to high.

In a medium microwave proof bowl, add water and sprouts and cover with plastic wrap.  Microwave on high for 3 minutes.

While sprouts are cooking, make dressing.  Mix oil, garlic, salt and pepper, red pepper flakes and mustard in a small bowl.

Drain sprouts.  Pat dry them by wrapping them in a paper towel to remove excess moisture.

Toss sprouts in dressing and throw them in a grill pan.  Grill the spouts for 3-5 minutes stirring frequently until grill marks appear.
