From the Test Kitchen

Brussels sprouts, just coming into season with the cooler weather, are a magnificent vegetable. The buds resemble miniature heads of cabbage, which they’re related to—but their earthy taste and crunchy texture are unique. Here, we’re sautéing Brussels sprouts with onion, sweet potato and apple (tossed with a little apple cider vinegar), bringing together fall’s delicious flavors in a wholesome hash. Along with nutty wild rice, it makes savory, saucy pork chops all the more satisfying.
