Slice each brussels sprout into 4-5 thin pieces. The brussels sprouts I had were enormous, if yours are on the smaller side, just half them or slice them into thirds. Melt the butter and the bacon grease in a large skillet over medium high heat. Let it almost brown and then swirl to coat the pan. Add the brussels sprouts and toss to coat well. Season with salt and pepper. Stirring occasionally, let them cook for about 3 minutes. They are done when they are piping hot and just a bit crisp still. Right before they are finished, stop stirring and let them brown for 20-30 seconds. Enjoy!
* If you do not have bacon grease in your refrigerator,just cook a chopped up slice of bacon in the skillet prior to adding the butter and then vegetables. It will work just as well.
