Brussels Sprouts with Bacon & Vermouth
Here we take advantage of the leftover bacon drippings in the pan to cook the sprouts, infusing them with savory flavor. Plus, cooking Brussels on the stovetop gives you perfect crisp-tender texture.
Vermouth is an herb-infused fortified wine. Sweet versions contain 10 to 15% sugar, while extra-dry ones contain less than 4%. Dry is typically used in savory dishes, while sweet is used for desserts—both are common components of cocktails. Refrigerate in an airtight container to reduce oxidation.
