Steam the Brussels sprouts (I use the microwave, but I know some are against that, so use whatever method you prefer). After you steam them, cut them in half and remove the hard bottom parts. While you are cutting up your sprouts, go ahead a heat a large pan up on med. heat and melt your fat. After the fat is melted, toss in your pancetta. Sauté the pancetta until starts to turn crispy. Then add your Brussels sprouts to the pan. You might have to add a little more fat to the pan at this point. Sauté the sprouts under they a soft and start to brown a little. Prepare to be amazed!
2 bags of Brussels sprouts
1 package of cubed pancetta (I get mine at Trader Joe’s, if you can’t find this, cubed bacon would work too)
2-3 tbsp of fat (your choice: organic butter, ghee, or bacon fat)
