Pan-Roasted Brussels Sprouts

  • servings: 6




  • 2 pints brussels sprouts, rinsed
  • 2 ounce ounces rendered duck fat from Turducken recipe
  • 1/2 head of garlic, split horizontally
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper


  1. Step 1

    Prepare an ice bath. Bring a medium pot of water to a boil; add brussels sprouts, and cook for 2 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer brussels sprouts to ice bath and let cool.

  2. Step 2

    Drain brussels sprouts, discarding ice bath. On work surface, halve brussels sprouts. In a large, shallow saucepan, heat duck fat until it just begins to smoke; add Brussels sprouts cut-side down. Pan-roast until golden brown, and toss while hot with garlic and thyme. Remove thyme; season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
