Cast Iron Balsamic Brussels Sprouts













This is a wonderfully simple preparation that results in sweet caramelized brussels sprouts that will make a perfect accompaniment to just about any dish.


  • 1 pound brussels sprouts 
  • 4 to 6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, to coat bottom of pan
  • 5 cloves garlic, peeled
  •  Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon fig balsamic vinegar (available in Alfalfa’s bulk oil selection)


  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Trim brussels sprouts, and slice each in half top to bottom. Heat oil in cast-iron pan over medium-high heat until it shimmers; put sprouts cut side down in one layer in pan. Put in garlic, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  2. Cook until sprouts begin to brown on bottom, and transfer to oven. Roast, shaking pan every few minutes, until sprouts are quite brown and tender, about 10 to 20 minutes.
  3. Taste, and add more salt and pepper if necessary. Stir in fig balsamic vinegar, and serve hot or warm.
