  1. 1 pint brussels sprouts (about a pound)

  3. 5 cloves garlic, peeled
  4.  Salt and pepper to taste
  5. 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar


  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Trim bottom of brussels sprouts, and slice each in half top to bottom. Heat oil in cast-iron pan over medium-high heat until it shimmers; put sprouts cut side down in one layer in pan. Put in garlic, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
