Dijon-Braised Brussels Sprouts

dijon-braised brussels sprouts

I made these Brussels sprouts twice this week. Yes, this recipe’s a definite keeper, but also I had to make them a second time because the first time I was too distracted by what our new edition, Joey, was getting into to take pictures. And the distraction was totally justified; I took my eyes off him for two minutes and heard a loud bang/yelp. He’d fallen down the stairs. Needless to say, this was not a proud moment. Come to think of it, I probably shouldn’t be admitting it.

Only after I was sufficiently convinced that no bones were broken and no blatantly obvious brain damage was done could I sit down and enjoy these Brussels sprouts. Thoroughly. We finished them all in one sitting, and so I vowed to make them again and share them with you.

Joey didn’t even approach the stairs this time. (The day he can actually get down them without falling will be a milestone.) Instead, he chilled/napped on the couch he’s claimed, occasionally entertaining himself with his myriad toys and coming over to the kitchen once in a while to check on my progress. Which was going quite smoothly, something I’ll attribute to both of us becoming more acclimated to our altered living situation.

While I adore that hash, this might be my new preferred method of cooking Brussels sprouts. No food processor required, here the sprouts are halved, browned in butter and olive oil, braised in white wine and chicken stock, then given a silky smooth finish with a little cream and Dijon mustard. Now what about that doesn’t scream delicious? And if you’ll excuse me, I need to go distract Joey from chewing on iPhone chargers/briefcases/pillows/slippers.

Dijon-Braised Brussels Sprouts, adapted from Smitten Kitchen

Ingredients:

  • 16 to 18 oz Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved (include the outer leaves that fall off)
  • 2 to 3 shallots, sliced thinly
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 Tbsp smooth Dijon mustard
  • 2 Tbsp cream
  • kosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp dried red pepper flakes
Directions:
  1. Heat butter and olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add Brussels sprouts, cut-side down, along with all the outer leaves that may have fallen off. Let cook, undisturbed, for 3 to 5 minutes, until browned. Stir with a spatula and season with kosher salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. Add the shallots, wine, and chicken broth and bring to a simmer, scraping all of the browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover, and braise for 15 to 20 minutes, until the sprouts are easily pierced with a sharp knife.
  2. Uncover, stir in the mustard and cream, and turn the heat up to medium high, allowing the sauce to thicken a little. Taste, and season with more salt and pepper if necessary.

    Puppies need a gate on the stairs so they’re not tempted to use them if they don’t yet have the balance and coordination required. Just like with kids, we need to be careful that our pets don’t hurt themselves. One tumble like that could seriously hurt a pet. I know Joey is a bigger boy now but for anyone with puppies, please use a child proof gate for your stairs.

On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
