Spicy Roasted Brussels Sprouts
4 cups Brussels Sprouts - Cleaned and cut in 1/2(not sure of the exact amount, I just used about 2 giant handfuls.
2 tbsp Bacon Fat
1 tbsp EVOO
2 tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
1/2 cup Water
2 Bacon Strips - Cooked till crispy and chopped
1/4 Onion - Diced
1 Garlic Clove - Minced
1/2 Fresno Chili - Seeded, sliced into strips
1 tsp Aleppo Peppers - Dried
1/2 tsp Black Pepper
2 tbsp - Locatelli Cheese - Grated
In a pan over med/high heat, add the bacon fat and EVOO to melt. Add in the brussels sprouts and mix to coat. Position the sprouts cut side down. Cook for about 1 1/2 minutes. Add the balsamic vinegar and cook about 30 seconds. Add the water, bacon, onion, garlic, chili & aleppo peppers. Reduce heat to simmer. Put lid on pan and simmer about 5 minutes or until the liquid has evaporated.
You may need to add a little more water and cover again if the sprouts aren't fully cooked.
Sprinkle w/ black pepper and grate w/ locatelli cheese.
