Yield: Serves 6

INGREDIENTS
  • 2 pieces bacon
  • 1/3 cup diced shallots
  • 2/3 cup chicken broth
  • 2/3 cup brown ale
  • ½ cup orange juice
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 pounds Brussels sprouts, halved

Directions

Fry the bacon over medium heat until barely crisp. Using kitchen scissors, snip the bacon into ¼-inch pieces.

Pour off all but 2 teaspoons fat from the pan.

Add the shallots and sauté until soft. Add the chicken broth, brown ale, orange juice and zest, and brown sugar and bring to a boil. Cook for 10 minutes on medium heat.

Add the bacon and sprouts and cook for 10 minutes more, stirring frequently, until sprouts are coated with a thick sauce.
