Thanksgiving Dinner Menu
Says de Laurentiis: “I think brussels sprouts got a bum rap from the bad cooking epidemic that seems to have swept America in the mid twentieth century: boilin prada handbags g veggies for so long that they become mushy, flavorless and colorless. When cooked properly, sprouts are wonderful, especially when paired with crisp pancetta.”
Work Time: 25 Minutes
1. Bring a large pot of salted wa prada handbags ter to a boil. Add the sprouts and cook until crisp tender, about 10 prada handbags minutes. Drain. Place the sprouts in a large bowl of ice water to cool completely. Drain again and dry thoroughly. (The sprouts can be prepared up to this point 8 hours ahead. Refrigerate in a resealable plastic bag.)
2. Heat the oil in a large, heavy skillet over a medium flame. Add the pancetta and saute until it begins to crisp, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and saute until pale golden, about 2 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the pancetta mixture to a large serving bowl. Add the Brussels sprouts to the same skillet and saute until heated through and beginning to brown, about 5 minutes. Add the broth, pepper, and salt, and simmer until the broth reduces just enough to coat the brussels sprouts, about 6 minutes.
3. Transfer the sprout mixtur prada handbags e to the pancetta mixture and toss to combine. Season with more salt and pepper to taste, and serve.
