We love cooking with beer and just found this great recipe on CraftBeer.com from ASpicyPerspective.com
2 lbs Brussels sprouts
6 oz thick cut bacon, chopped
1 shallot, peeled and sliced
12 oz bottle beer, something light and crisp
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
Pinch crushed red pepper
Trim the ends of each Brussels sprouts, removing excess leaves. Cut the sprouts in half, leaving the smallest sprouts whole.
Place a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chopped bacon and saute until crisp.
Add the sliced shallot. Saute another 2-3 minutes to soften. Then add the Brussels sprouts. Stir and sear the sides of the sprouts for 4-5 minutes.
Pour the bottle of beer into the skillet. Add the salt and both peppers. Bring to a simmer and lower the heat a little. Stir and simmer until the beer has reduced to a glaze and the sprouts are cooked through, 12-15 minutes.
