Brussel Sprouts and Asparagus

A very brief recipe I made after seeing a similar sample at the local Sam’s Club store.

Brussel Sprouts and Asparagus

  • 1 bag or bunch of fresh brussel sprouts
  • 1 bunch asparagus
  • One of the following:
    • Butter
    • Bacon grease
    • Bacon bits and some vegetable oil

Wash all vegetables. Slice the ends off the brussel sprouts, cut in half. Cut the woody ends off the asparagus, cut the heads off the asparagus (and save) and cut the rest of the asparagus shaft into 1/2 – 1 inch pieces.

Heat the fat being used in a pan big enough to hold all the vegetable. Lightly saute the asparagus shafts first, as they will take longest to cook. After a few minutes, put in the brussel sprouts and cook a few minutes more. When everything is almost done, put in the asparagus heads last as they are pretty tender and will cook fast.

Serve as is, or with a little bit of salt and pepper.
