  1. Divide the onions into wedges and fry in butter on medium heat for 5–10 minuter.
  2. The onions should turn golden, but not burned. Add the vinegar and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Lower the heat some and continue to sauté the onion while stirring. Place on a plate.
  4. Cut the Brussel sprouts in half, depending on their size. If they are small, you can fry them whole.
  5. Fry the Brussel sprouts in the same frying pan with more butter until they have turned a nice color and a little soft. Use a knife or a pin to check. They're best served "al dente".
  6. Salt and pepper. Add the onions and stir.

    Anon, I love roasting veggies and to be honest, all they need is salt and pepper. The roasting develops such a deep wonderful flavor and let's the vegetable shine. However, feel free to add whatever spices you like. I love crushed rosemary on mine!
