8-10 medium-sized brussels sprouts
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon chopped garlic (about 2 cloves)
Wash brussels sprouts thoroughly. Cut in half lengthwise. Coat with salt and pepper; set aside.
Heat olive oil in medium saucepan at medium-low heat. Add chopped garlic and cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Place sprouts into the pan, cut side down, turn the heat to medium-high, and sautee until well-browned on the underside, about 4-5 minutes. Cover tightly and lower heat to low. Shake the pan to make sure sprouts are not stuck, then continue cooking until they are soft. Serve immediately.
