Brussels Sprouts with Honeycrisp Apples Recipe on Food52.
Serves: 6 to 8
6 slices bacon, cut into 2-inch pieces
2 small red onions, cut into bite-size chunks
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 tablespoons butter
1 pound brussels sprouts, trimmed and cut lengthwise
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh black pepper
1/2 teaspoon Herbes de Provence
2 Honeycrisp apples, peeled and cut into chunks
1/4 cup chicken stock
2 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon fresh sage, chopped
Cook the bacon in a large skillet over low heat until brown and crispy (I turn up the heat after the fat renders to speed up the process). Transfer with a slotted spoon to a plate lined with paper towels and set aside. Remove all but 1 tablespoon of bacon drippings.
Add the onions and olive oil to the skillet. Sauté on medium-high heat until onions are cooked and slightly caramelized, about 6 minutes. Transfer onions with a slotted spoon to a bowl.
Add butter to the oil and combine. Turn heat to high. Place the brussels sprouts cut side down in a hot skillet, spreading brussels sprouts out. Brown well on one side before stirring. Add salt, pepper, and Herbes de Provence.
Stir and cook until soft on the outside but still firm inside, about 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer brussels sprouts to the bowl with onions. Add apples to hot pan and brown, about 3 minutes on each side. Add the chicken stock and vinegar. Turn off heat until ready to serve.
Just before serving, add all ingredients, except sage and bacon, back into pan and toss to warm. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle with sage and the crisp bacon. Serve immediately.
