On medium high heat, throw the bacon in and let everything colour and melt for a good 2mins. Add in the brussels sprouts and then the pepper - salt is facultative.
With a lid on, put everything in the oven for 10 to 15mins. Make sure the sprouts are still a bit crunchy or al dente. Then at the very end, throw a nice chunk of butter to smooth everything out and let it melt in.
An alternative for this recipe is to make the sprouts dark brown coloured. Keep the same steps, only colour them in a cast iron pan with a bit of vegetable oil and butter at the very end. This pushes the flavors up a notch.
