Michael Symon's Braised Pork with Brussels Sprouts Salad

So this was another Michael Symon pairing of recipes that was out of this world delicious.  We all gave this a 9, it was so rich and tangy and amazing.  I will only feature the Brussels sprouts recipe, but we had it with the braised pork shanks (I used pork chops) from Symon's Carnivore cookbook which is where the Brussels sprouts recipe came from.  This salad should be paired with any rich pork dish, according to Mr. Symon, and you will be amazed at how delicious this is.  They boys loved the Brussels sprouts too, even Jonah.  Each serving was 86 calories, for 16 servings, and here's what to do:

1 shallot, minced
1 garlic clove, minced
2 T caraway seeds
1 T grainy mustard
1/4 cider vinegar
1/2 c olive oil
1 lb shaved Brussels sprouts, shredded or shaved

Whisk together the shallot, garlic, caraway seeds, mustard, vinegar, and olive oil.  Season with salt to taste.  Toss the Brussels sprouts with the dressing to coat and serve immediately.

  1. This one I would have to taste before I would make it for us since neither one of us likes Brussels sprouts. Love mom
