Spicy-and-Garlicky Brussels Sprouts
- TOTAL TIME: 30 MIN
- SERVINGS: 12
The staff at Myers + Chang restaurant call these sprouts "green candy" because they get so sweet as they brown in the skillet.
- 3 pounds brussels sprouts, halved
- 6 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 4 large garlic cloves, smashed
- 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
- Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the brussels sprouts and cook until bright green, 2 minutes. Drain well and pat dry.
- In a large, deep skillet, heat 3 tablespoons of the oil until shimmering. Add half of the garlic and half of the brussels sprouts and cook over high heat undisturbed for 1 minute. Add half of the crushed red pepper, season with salt and cook over moderate heat, stirring a few times, until the brussels sprouts are browned and tender, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a serving bowl. Repeat with the remaining oil, garlic, brussels sprouts and crushed red pepper. Serve warm.
