No pancetta? No worries. You can swap in some bacon and still get the salty bite of pork this side dish needs.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound thinly sliced pancetta, diced small
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, if needed
  • 1 3/4 pounds brussels sprouts, trimmed and shredded (10 cups)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary leaves
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (from 1 lemon)
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

Directions

  1. In a large nonstick skillet, cook pancetta over medium, stirring occasionally, until crisp, 8 to 10 minutes. With a slotted spoon, transfer pancetta to paper towels to drain. Pour off all but 1/4 cup drippings (if necessary, add enough oil to measure 1/4 cup). Add brussels sprouts and cook, stirring occasionally, until crisp-tender, 10 minutes. Stir in rosemary and cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Stir in pancetta. Remove from heat, stir in lemon juice, and season with salt and pepper. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Cook's Notes

A food processor shreds sprouts fast, but a sharp knife does the job, too.
