Slow Cooker Balsamic Brussels Sprouts

  • Cooking Time:

    2 hours
  • Servings:



1 lb. Fresh Brus­sels Sprouts, trimmed and halved
1/4 c. Bal­sam­ic Vine­gar
1 T. Pure Maple Syrup
1/2 c. water
4 sprigs fresh thyme
Salt and pep­per, to taste
Option­al: crum­bled bacon

I use to “think” I didn’t like Brus­sels Sprouts, then I made Slow Cook­er Bal­sam­ic Brus­sels Sprouts, and found I real­ly like their deli­cious fla­vor! Yum!

  1. Trim and halve the brus­sels sprouts and place in a 3-Quart Slow Cook­er. Sprin­kle with salt & pep­per.
  2. In a small saucepan, heat the vine­gar and maple syrup until boil­ing. Reduce heat and stir in water.
  3. Pour over sprouts in the slow cook­er and stir.
  4. Cook on High for 2 hours, adding the thyme sprig when there are just 30 min­utes left to cook.
  5. Before serv­ing, dis­card the thyme sprigs.

Option­al: Crum­ble fried bacon and sprin­kle over sprouts before serv­ing!

NOTE: If you do not crum­ble bacon, this is a veg­e­tar­i­an side dish!

Hap­py Crock­ing!

There is a place called Brus­sels. This veg­etable was named after it. Brus­sels (with an s) sprouts. That said, this sounds great! I will try it this after­noon.


Why Do The Recipes Not Tell The Num­ber Of Serv­ings Each One Makes.…It Lists The Nutri­tion­al Info Per Serv­ing But Not What A Serv­ing Size Is??


Direc­tions state that the sprouts are quar­tered. They look whole and halved in the pho­to. Would they only be quar­tered if the sprouts are large (those in pho­to appear to be small ones)? Thanks. Love your site!

I was won­der­ing what would be a good sub­sti­tute for the red wine? We don’t usu­al­ly have wine in the house, so I wouldn’t want to buy a bot­tle for such a small amount.

What red wine? This has maple syrup and bal­sam­ic vine­gar.

Along with the serv­ing sizes and the time, would it be pos­si­ble to list the size of crock pot that goes with the recipe? That would be a great help! Thank you!


Can you dou­ble the batch and it will still turn out good? I know some­times you have to adjust the ratio of ingre­di­ents when you dou­ble things.

Could you use frozen sprouts?


I tried these and although they were tasty, they sure didn’t look like the pic­ture! They were not the vibrant green as pic­tured, but a brown col­or as a result of the bal­sam­ic vine­gar and red wine, I assume!


How many brus­sel sprouts are 8oz?


Just won­der­ing how much wine as I do not see it men­tioned in the recipe ingre­di­ents nor the direc­tions but it is men­tioned in the reviews
