A great tasting side dish. My only comment – did you really mean to say to boil the Brussels sprouts for 10 mins tgen panfry for 10 mins?
I boiled them for 3 minutes and pan fried for 3 or 4 mins (on medium heat) and they were overcooked! Almost like mooshy powder!
I’d suggest steaming them for 1-2 mins (if at all) then panfry 1-2 mins!
