DIRECTIONS:

  1. Add olive oil to a large pan over medium-high heat

  2. Add the smashed garlic and pancetta, let cook until just slightly browning

  3. Place brussels flat side down in the plan, fit as many as you can then add the rest even if they don’t sit flat side down. Let them sit untouched for 5-10 minutes, you want golden cripsy look.
