  • 2 ounces pancetta ¼" dice
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 large shallot finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic chopped
  • 1 ½ pounds brussels sprouts halved
  • ¾ cup white wine
  • teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • kosher salt to taste


  • Preheat oven to 375F
  • In a large oven-safe skillet, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add pancetta and sauté. Once pancetta begins to crisp up add shallots and chopped garlic, sauté until shallots are translucent.
  • Season lightly with kosher salt - pancetta will add salty flavor.
  • Add brussels sprouts and stir so pancetta, garlic and shallots are evenly coating the sprouts. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes to slightly char the sprouts on the hot pan, adding ½ cup of white wine before garlic and shallots turn brown. Sauté or stir brussels sprouts, scraping the bottom the pan to release the flavors cooked on from the pancetta.
  • Add red pepper flakes and cook on high heat until most of the wine has been absorbed or evaporated. Add the final ¼ cup of white wine and transfer pan to the oven. Roasted at 375F for 30 minutes or until sprouts have a dark roasted color and some of the leaves are crispy.
