How to make balsamic Brussels sprouts in a slow cooker (video)

Print this recipe
Like most kids, I didn't really like eating Brussels sprouts while growing up. But my mother would give me just one look, and I knew it would be trouble if I didn't eat my portion. In the recipe below, we make the simplest, tastiest Brussels sprouts that even your kids will love. I would have had no problem eating these as a child.
The acidity and sweetness you find in balsamic vinegar is like no other. That balance is perfect with a fruity olive oil. We combine the two in this recipe with some fresh chives and garlic. It all comes together in a slow cooker, where the Brussels sprouts slowly soak up all the flavor. I serve this often with grilled chicken, or sometimes I eat an entire bowl all by itself.
