Not Your Gramma’s Brussel Sprouts – Instant Pot

    Brussel sprouts are such odd little vegetables, aren’t they?

    Typically they are an acquired taste…you sort of grow into liking them. With a recipe like this one, learning to like them will come easy.

    I adapted this recipe from one of Jeffery’s over at Pressure Luck. His uses way more spicy ingredients and I knew I would NOT like it, nor would anyone that I cook for. So, I set out to make a flavorful, but tame, version of his Instant Pot brussel sprouts.

    They are just the right amount of kick – since most Thanksgiving food is a little on the bland side, these will liven up the plates of all who try them, without being so spicy as to burn your mouth!

    I cook the bacon until it is done enough to be almost crispy and then remove it from the pot. Leave the bacon grease in the pot and then deglaze with your liquids. Add the sprouts, and cook for only three minutes. Do a quick release, carefully open, and stir well. Add in the bacon and stir some more. If it is too runny, sauté for a couple of minutes to burn off some of the moisture.

    Have a Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

    Instructions
    1. Saute the bacon in the liner of your Instant Pot. This will take approximately 20 minutes. You want the bacon to be well enough cooked to have structure, or as crispy as you like it. Remove the cooked bacon to a plate and set aside.
    2. While bacon is cooking, mix all wet ingredients and the spices together in a glass measuring cup or bowl. Once the bacon is out of the liner, deglaze the pan with the liquids and scrap up any little bits on the bottom.
    3. Cut off the bottoms of the sprouts and cut them in half lengthwise. Add them to the liner and stir to coat. Set manual/pressure cook to three minutes and then lock and seal your lid. When the sprouts are done, do a quick release. Add the reserved bacon back in, stir well, and serve warm.
