Brussel Sprouts with Bacon Sauteed with Lard ~ Miles Jascha

This photo and recipe of brussel sprouts sauteed with CGF lard is courtesy of Miles Jascha, co-author of Savory and Sweet.

1 lb or so of brussel sprouts
1 onion cut into 1 inch strips
2 cloves of garlic
1 tsp sugar
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
cayenne pepper
salt and pepper to taste
2 strips of bacon (optional)

Wash and quarter the brussel sprouts. Saute onion and bacon in some fat. I used a tsp of lard and a tsp of butter for extra flavor but you can use veggie oil too. Once onions are translucent add the Brussel Sprouts, garlic, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper. Cook until the brussel sprouts are starting to carmelize (about 10-15 minutes.) Turn heat down a little and cook until sprouts just start softening and add the cider vineger and sugar. Cook for a couple minutes longer to incorporate the vinegar and they are done. Serve immediately.
