How to Cook Brussels Sprouts

  1. Remove the outer leaves from the sprouts and cut a cross in the stem about ⅛" (3mm) deep to help them cook evenly. Boil the Brussels sprouts in a large pan of salted water until they are fork tender (about 8 minutes).
  2. Change the water after 8 minutes (see Hot Tip below) then finish cooking for a further 6-8 minutes. Strain the sprouts and season with salt and plenty of freshly ground pepper to serve.

The secret to cooking Brussels sprouts (and cauliflower and cabbage) that don't taste bitter is to change the water halfway through cooking. Simply boil a kettle and have the hot water ready so you can drain the sprouts and have them straight back to cooking again in seconds.

Yeah! I always wondered how to get rid of that bitterness. Changing the water halfway does the trick every time!
