4 strips thick cut bacon, diced
2 apples, peeled and diced
3 cups Brussels Sprouts, halved
1 cup apple juice
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
In a heavy skillet cook the diced bacon over medium-high heat until the fat has rendered, about 5 minutes. Remove the bacon from the pan and set aside.
Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and the apples and sauté for 1 minute, stirring.
Add the brussels sprouts and stir well, cooking for 2 minutes. Add 1 cup of apple juice and the lemon juice and cook over medium heat for 2-3 minutes. Add the bacon and cook over high heat for 1 minute- the brussels sprouts should be just fork tender (if they are not, give them another minute or two of cooking time. Season to taste with kosher salt and serve hot.
