This recipe for brussels sprouts is easy to make and will yield insanely crispy sprouts on the outside, and incredible creamy on the inside. This is the best method for how to cook brussels sprouts.



  • 1 pound of brussels sprouts
  • Kosher salt
  • Butter Ghee, or avocado oil


  1. Trim a sliver off the end of the brussels sprouts and cut in half. Pre-heat a large cast iron pan just above medium heat or two minutes, you can also use a non-stick pan. Add enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan, about 2 tablespoons, and allow to heat up for 30 seconds. Add the brussels sprouts cut side down, and only add one to cover the pan in one layer. Cook undisturbed for 5-7 minutes and only flip when the sprouts are deep golden brown. Season with a nice pinch of salt and cook another 4 minutes or until the second side is deep golden in color. Repeat with the second batch. Serve and enjoy!
