A delicious homemade dish that goes really well with any kind of meat or just by itself. Super easy to make and great for families.



1 pound brussels sprouts, halved

4 ounces thick-cut pancetta, cubed

1/2 cup roasted pumpkin seeds (also called pepitas)

1/3 cup golden raisins

2 tablespoons olive oil

Drizzle of balsamic vinegar

2 lemons juiced

Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Place the brussels sprouts in a ziplock bag and add the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and lemon juice. I add a pinch of salt and pepper.  Let it sit in the fridge for about 30 minutes to marinate.
  2. In a large pan or skillet place the pancetta and let it cook in medium/high heat for a couple of minutes.
  3. Place the brussels sprouts and mix them really well with the pancetta. Let it cook for another 5-7 minutes in medium/high heat. *I like my brussels sprouts a little hard but if you want them softer, cook them for an extra minute of two.
  4. Finally add the golden raisins and pumpkin seeds. Mix well.
  5. Serve warm and enjoy!
