Deep fried Brussels sprouts? Wouldn't that just ruin them?

Um, this article is about the Birmingham in the UK, not the one in Alabama. The reference to the Queen's Speech should have been a giveaway.

I think they're ruined as soon as they're picked and treated like food.


I don't like 'em, ya see.

I like some fried foods just as much as the next guy. Hell, I'm Southern; I have no choice. But I eat them as rare treats. When people start wrapping Snickers bars in bacon and deep frying them or adding eggs, four different cheeses, bacon, ham and three quarter-pound patties to a hamburger, society has a serious problem.

...and in closing I'd like to say deep-fried mutton is the sh*t! Speaking of which, my corgis need to go outside and lay some cable.
Merry Christmas, 99%-ers!

At first I thought this was going to be one of those amateur D-I-Y recipes that involve a large pot of boiling hot oil in your garage.

Then I read that it's being done in a restaurant and felt better about it being done in a controlled environment.

Now, I figure that some idiot, somewhere is going to attempt this themselves with the large pot of boiling hot oil in their garage and this will result in them burning the house down.

I stand corrected. This is the problem with so many on-line "news" sources. Few of them tell you where the town/city in question is. I didn't read the entire article, so I missed the reference to the queens speech.

Canton: Deep fried Brussels sprouts? Wouldn't that just ruin them?


Nope. The thing that ruins Brussels sprouts is water - steaming or boiling allows the leaves to release sulfur, skunking the batch and giving them the horrible flavor that makes most people say they hate Brussels sprouts. Roasting or frying the sprouts is the best way to cook them, because there's very little water involved.

Essentially, they're miniature cabbages, and should be treated as such.

Brussels sprouts are nature's slingshot ammo. I once beaned a kid from 60 yards firing one from a Wrist Rocket.

I had roasted Brussels sprouts for the first time ever on Thanksgiving. They were delicious. That said, I do actually like them steamed or boiled. Maybe it's different if you start with flash frozen sprouts, rather than fresh. Or maybe the trick is just to not overcook them. In any case, I love those delicious mini-cabbages, boiled or roasted.

Mmmm, steamed veggies...

Like I said, *most* people don't like the taste if they're boiled or steamed. I usually roast them with olive oil, lemon zest, and Parmesan cheese, but I also like them chopped up, steamed, and mixed into egg salad. I'm notoriously weird. And yes, overcooking is a huge part of it, since the more water they're exposed to, the more the sulfur comes out.

/Sudden thought; using Brussels sprouts instead of cabbage in bubble and squeak.
//Okay, I've got an experiment for the weekend.

Ahh. I misunderstood that, I'm sorry. It's easy enough to overcook the sprouts, which would turn first timers off of them right away. Done just right, they should have a mildly sweet, nutty, cabbagy taste to them.

I did try to reheat leftover steamed Brussels sprouts in the microwave once. It wasn't pretty.

/Goes to look up "bubble and squeak."
