Instant Pot Brussels Sprouts With Bacon Recipe

November 20, 2020

This Instant Pot Brussels Sprouts With Bacon Recipe is easy to make that's packed full of flavor. Brussels sprouts with bacon is a delicious recipe as a side dish or even as a main course.

I really like it since it combines the healthiness of the Brussels Sprouts and the flavor of the bacon. Brussels sprouts are almost neglected at our table. We make broccoli, cauliflower, but hardly ever Brussels sprouts.

People usually think they have bad taste. Well, for some they do, but when paired with something as bacon, they turn out truly wonderful. Bacon makes it all good. Bacon turns even the humble Brussels sprouts into an amazing dish.

This recipe is so easy to make and you only need some simple ingredients, like bone broth, onion, and garlic. Of course, bacon and Brussels sprouts and that's it.

The Instant pot will cook these to perfection. You can make these two ways – cooking the bacon separately in the Instant pot, then removing and cooking the brussels sprouts or cooking altogether. The first version will give you soft Brussels sprouts with crispy bacon, while the second version will make the bacon soft and soggy. For this recipe I’m using the first method and cook them separately.

So.. let’s get to work!
