Skillet-Braised Brussels Sprouts

by 247tasty

Bacon and Brussels sprouts. Anyone? Today’s recipe is one of my favorite dishes to cook. It gives the perfect balance of greasy and healthy elements. I usually prepare this on Friday night’s dinner. It’s kind of a celebratory meal to celebrate the week. I know it’s some kind of a weird tradition but we do it anyway. I serve this with a nice spaghetti and meatball. It’s the perfect food! Try this one. It’s something to look forward to this coming Friday. Enjoy!

1 pound Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved, or more to taste
1 clove garlic, thinly sliced, or more to taste
1/2 cup chicken stock, or more as needed
1 tablespoon butter, or to taste
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar, or more to taste
salt and ground black pepper to taste
