Ingredients

  • 2  tablespoons  extra-virgin olive oil
  • 8  ounces  pancetta, cubed
  • 2-3 pounds Brussels sprouts, halved
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat and add the pancetta. Cook until slightly browned and drain on a paper towel. Drizzle a bit of olive oil on top, depending on how oily the pancetta is.

Raise the heat to medium-high, add the sprouts, and cook until caramelized and browned around the edges, about 5-8 minutes. When they begin to brown, add the pancetta back to the pan and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Serve.
