Baby Carrots And Brussels Sprouts Glazed With Brown Sugar and Pepper
INGREDIENTS
  • 2 pounds baby carrots
  • 2 pounds Brussels sprouts, trimmed and scored
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground black pepper
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Blanch carrots in a large pot of boiling salted water until crisp-tender, about 4 minutes. Transfer carrots to bowl of ice water using slotted spoon. Return water to boil. Add sprouts and blanch until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Transfer to another bowl of ice water. Drain vegetables, and refrigerate if making ahead.
  2. Bring stock, butter or margarine, and brown sugar to a boil in a heavy large skillet. Stir until sugar dissolves. Boil until reduced by half, about 7 minutes. Can be prepared 6 hours ahead; return to boil before continuing. Add carrots. Cook until almost tender and sauce begins to coat, shaking pan occasionally, about 6 minutes. Add Brussels sprouts and pepper. Cook until heated through, stirring occasionally, about 4 minutes.
