Step 1
Wash and dry sprouts.
Step 2
Cut off the small stalk on the end, cut each sprout in half lengthwise, and remove any loose or browned leaves.
Step 3
Add butter and oil to a large skillet and heat over medium-high eat until the butter starts to sizzle.
Step 4
Once sizzling, place the sprouts, cut side down, in a single layer cramming as many as you can into the pan. Cook until they are golden brown and the sugars have caramelized, about 3-5 minutes. Add salt and pepper, then toss and saute the sprouts until they are cooked through and still hold their vibrant green color, about 4-5 minutes. Remove from heat and serve immediately.
