If you know anything about cooking with cannabis, you know you can’t cook at too high a temperature if you want to keep your THC from being ruined by the heat. And if you know anything about pan-roasting Brussels sprouts, you know the best way to do it is in a cast-iron skillet over a serious flame. What gives? As with comedy, cooking is about timing. But while they say tragedy plus time equals comedy, with cooking, too much heat for too long always equals tragedy. So the trick here is to know just when to add your THC—for this recipe in the form of cannabutter.
  • 1 pound Brussels sprouts
  • 3 or 4 strips bacon, preferably thick-cut
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1 small onion
  • 2 tablespoons butter or olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons cannabutter or oil
  1. Heat cast-iron skillet on high for 5 to 7 minutes, then reduce heat to medium.
  2. Chop or slice and add bacon.
  3. Cook bacon for 2 minutes, then add butter or oil.
  4. Cut sprouts into halves and chop garlic and onion.
  5. When butter is melted, add garlic and onion and brown for 1 to 2 minutes before adding sprouts.
  6. Place sprouts cut side down and cook for 3 to 5 minutes.
  7. Turn over sprouts and continue cooking for another 3 to 5 minutes until browned and soft.
  8. Turn off heat, mix in cannabutter or oil and let sit for 2 minutes to heat and absorb into food.
