Brussels Sprouts with Cranberries and Pepper Bacon

  • 3 ounces pepper bacon, cut into thin strips
  • 4 shallots, peeled and halved
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 sprig fresh thyme
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 3 tablespoons dry sherry
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 pound brussels sprouts, halved

In a large skillet, cook the bacon until slightly crisp. Add the shallots and gently cook over medium heat until the shallots are lightly browned (about 10 minutes). Drain off any additional fat from the pan. Add the rest of the ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes or until the sprouts are tender. Season with a dash of balsamic vinegar.
