Summary
There are a couple ways to shave Brussels sprouts. One way to do it is by hand—just trim the stem-end of each sprout so that it sits flat on a cutting board. Then, using a chef's knife, cut it into very thin slices. (Trimming the end prevents it from rolling around.) Another way is to use a food processor. Simply place the sprouts in the chute and let the slicing attachment do the work!

Directions

  1. Cut off the bottoms of the brussels sprouts’ cores, then cut the sprouts into very thin slices with a knife, or slice them in a food processor.

  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat the oil until it’s hot. Sauté the brussels sprouts for 5 to 7 minutes, or until they begin to brown, stirring occasionally. For crispier brussels sprouts, sauté a couple minutes longer.

  3. Stir in the brown sugar, salt, pepper, and pineapple. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes, or until heated through. Sprinkle with the macadamia nuts and serve.
