Caramelized Brussel Sprouts with Lemon

12-16 ounces Brussel sprouts, halved
salt and pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
lemon juice
  • In a skillet add the sprouts and 1/2 cup water.  
  • Season them with salt and pepper.
  • Bring to a simmer over medium heat.  
  • Cover and cook until most of the water has evaporated, about 7-8 minutes.  You can add more water if the skillet gets dry, you want the sprouts to be crisp tender.
  • Increase the heat to medium high and add oil.  
  • Cook, uncovered, without stirring until they are golden brown, about 6-7 minutes.  
  • Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice to taste, season with salt and pepper to taste.
