  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 pound Brussels sprouts
  • 2 shallots thinly sliced
  • 1 Pink Lady apple diced
  • cup dried cranberries
  • 3 sprigs fresh thyme leaves
  • salt and coarsely ground black pepper to taste
  • cup chopped pecans
  • 1 tablespoon white balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 2 ounces crumbled goat cheese
  1. Shave the Brussels sprouts by removing any loose or browning outer leaves of the sprouts, trimming the bottom root off the sprouts, and thinly slicing the Brussels sprouts from tip to root. (the root will help keep each sprout slice together)
  2. Heat the olive oil and butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté the Brussels sprouts and shallots for 3 minutes, stirring often and seasoning to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Add the diced apples, craisins and thyme. Sauté for another 3 to 4 minutes until the Brussels are crisp-tender but still bright green. Stir in the pecans, white balsamic vinegar, and honey. Taste and season to taste again.
  3. Transfer the Brussels into a serving bowl and sprinkle the crumbled goat cheese over top. Season with freshly ground black pepper. Serve hot.
