I was looking for a simple and delicious way to prepare brussel sprouts. I keep a lot of garlic in my kitchen so I decided to throw 1 minced garlic clove, a tablespoon of butter and a teaspoon of ground pepper in a pan with 6 halved brussel sprouts. I cooked them a little more than five minutes. I like mine a little crispy on the outside so once the outer layer started to turn brown I was done! They are so yummy! Quick and easy to make too! If you don't like butter you can easily substitute butter with oil.
