How to make Brussels Sprouts with Chestnuts
- Bring butter, salt, pepper, and 1 cup water to a boil over high heat in a deep 12-inch
heavy skillet, then add Brussels sprouts and simmer, partially covered, stirring
occasionally, until crisp-tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove lid and boil over moderately
high heat until water is evaporated and sprouts are lightly browned, 3 to 4 minutes.
Add cream and remaining 1/4 cup water and bring to a boil, stirring. Add chestnuts,
then reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until heated through, about 2 minutes.
