These pepper jelly caramelized brussel sprouts have become a favorite around here. They only require two ingredients along with some salt and pepper and that’s it. You’ll sauté the brussel sprouts in cast iron, then remove from heat and stir in some spicy pepper jelly. Taking less than 10 minutes to make, you seriously can’t beat them. Plus, they are amazingly delicious.
These cast iron brussels sprouts are my new favorite vegetable to cook. I love how easy they are to make. I went ahead and bought the store-bought halved brussels sprouts, so there’s really no hopping or cutting involved. All you do is add them to your skillet with a little olive oil and salt and pepper, brown them up really good until they’re nice and tender. Remove them from heat and add your pepper jelly. I used a spicy pepper jelly from Tabasco. There are all sorts of pepper jelly you can buy from the grocery store.
Equipment You’ll Need
Not only does this recipe require hardly any ingredients, it doesn’t hardly require any equipment either. All you’ll need is a cast-iron skillet and a spoon or spatula. I Think I used a 10 or 12-inch cast iron for this recipe.
Ingredients You’ll Need
I used 24 ounces of halved brussels sprouts. I bought them from the store already in half. If not, you can cut them after you buy them.
You’ll need about a tablespoon of olive oil to sauté the brussels sprouts in.
Salt & Pepper:
Before you add the pepper jelly, You’ll add a sprinkle of salt and pepper to give them a little more flavor.
Spicy Pepper Jelly:
You’ll use three tablespoons of spicy pepper jelly. I used one from Tabasco, but you can really use any brand or flavor. I just like the spicy one the best.
