  1. Steam the sprouts for 4 minutes.
  2. Strain and slice in thin rolls. Or if you use smaller ones you can just cut them in two.
  3. Dice the bacon (or pancetta) or, if you prefer, cut it in thin strips.
  4. In a small pan, melt a teaspoon of butter and a teaspoon of olive oil on high temperature.
  5. Add the bacon or pancetta along with the mushrooms (if you use any) and allow them to become golden, stirring occasionally.
  6. Add the Brussels sprouts, chilli pepper and juiced lemon and mix continuously until they become golden and relatively dry.
  7. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and enjoy warm
