  • 1 tablespoon (14 g) butter
  • 1 tablespoon (14 ml) olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves , thinly sliced
  • ½ teaspoon (2 g) Creole Seasoning
  • 1 cup (88 g) Brussel Sprouts , trimmed and sliced in half
  • 2 tablespoons (30 ml) red wine vinegar


  • Heat the butter and oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Once the butter and oil have melted, add in the garlic slices and saute until they start to turn golden about 2-3 minutes.
  • Remove garlic from the pan using a slotted spoon and set aside. You do not want to leave the garlic in the pan longer than that as it will burn easily.
  • Add the Creole Seasoning and thoroughly mix it into the butter mixture.
  • Place the brussel sprouts face down into the pan and leave untouched for 5-7 minutes until the side face down starts to brown.
  • Flip and saute for 5-7 minutes more until brussel sprouts are evenly cooked on both sides.
  • Add the red wine vinegar and saute some more for 1-2 minutes.
  • Serve immediately or keep warm until ready to use.


  • Spice it up with a dash of cayenne pepper or pepper flakes.
  • You can leave out the red wine if desired. It doesn't make that huge of a difference.
  • Feel free to use Cajun seasoning instead of Creole. Cajun seasoning has a basic blend mix of garlic powder, onion, black pepper, and cayenne pepper while Creole seasoning has those too with more herbs ranging from oregano to basil and paprika.
  • Add your favorite cheese for toppings to make it more scrumptious.
  • Put the sauteed brussel sprouts in a skewer and grill them if you want that smoky taste. 
  • Please keep in mind that nutritional information is a rough estimate and can vary greatly based on the products used.
