"I learned a long time ago from my grandmother to never, ever, boil Brussels Sprouts because it gives them a bitter taste. Put a cross in the botom to allow flavors to get to the center of the sprout and then steam them till tender then finish the recipe. I also used fresh sprouts in this recipe because they were in season but I've used frozen sprouts before and gotten almost the same taste in other recipes."
