Process:

  1. Wash the Brussels Sprouts, being sure to remove any excess dirt.

  2. Place the Brussels Sprouts, Balsamic Vinegar, Olive Oil, and Maple Syrup in a slow cooker. Season with salt and pepper. Stir to combine the ingredients.

  3. Set the slow cooker to high and let cook for 1-1.5 hours, or on low for 2-2.5 hours, depending on your preferred texture. The longer you cook them, the crispier the sprouts on the edges will get.

  4. Transfer the Brussels Sprouts of a serving bowl and drizzle with remaining balsamic glaze from the bottom of the slow cooker. Top with parmesan cheese and serve!




Brussels sprouts after one hour cooking vs. one and a half hours cooking on high. Feel free to test one as they cook, and take them off the heat when they reach your desired tenderness.
