Grilled a pork tenderloin and asparagus last night. Just on a whim, I grabbed a couple handfuls of Brussels sprouts, tossed them with olive oil, Kosher salt and pepper, put them into a cast iron gratin dish, and onto the grill it went. I kept it on mostly indirect heat and let it cook for maybe 15 minutes, turning a couple times.

It was an awesome surprise and very, very tasty. I may have found a new favorite veg to go with grilled stuff.

Love Brussels sprouts! Your recipe sounds pretty close to how I cook them, usually I will add a 1/4 cup water to pan to help with keeping them moist then brown them slightly in pan, serve and grade some parmesan on top & enjoy!

Excellent. My whole family gobbles the brussel sprouts. I'll try them on the grill next time I fire it up.

The pork is a go the asparagus - maybe... The Brussel Sprouts - NEVER I hate them. They make me gag. I always thought they were little cabbages and that they should be turned into coleslaw until I saw a picture of them growing. All on a stalk. They would best be used as compost for your hop bines!!

They are great grilled! They are also great pan friend in bacon grease and butter and then tossed with bacon, lemon juice, salt, and pepper.

Some time when you are not grilling do the same thing but put them in a baking pan and roast them in the oven tell they brown just a bit.

i do this. even non-sprout eaters love it once you convince them to bite into one. my version: pluck any yucky outer leaves and trim the base a little. rinse (or if they are a bit limp, leave them an hour in water after trimming) and pat them dry with a towel (important for browning), roll them in cheap olive oil, toss them in lots of black pepper and salt, put them in a baking tray or cookie sheet or whatever, but in a single layer and not crowded. give them some space or they won't brown quickly enough. into a very hot oven (~200C) about 20-30 minutes, you want the outer leaves blackened and the inside softened a little, cooked through but still crunchy. they are sweet and wonderful, nothing like the over-boiled soggy version we have probably all had and hated. but now i'm thinking- skewer some and grill over coals. have to wait until november! great side dish for bbq turkey?
