  • Wash and cut your brussel sprouts in half lengthwise.
  • Put a vegetable steamer basket at the bottom of your Instant Pot with 1.5 c. water.
  • Put your cut brussels into your basket and close the lid and steam valve.
  • Set to pressure high for 3 minutes, if cutting this recipe in half I would set to 2 minutes.
  • Do a quick release, take out basket with vegetables and drain liquid in the pot.
  • Put pot back in and set to saute normal.
  • Add 1 tbsp. of your butter and your diced bacon.
  • Cook until bacon is almost done and then add your shallots for last minute, then add the last stick of butter so it melts.
  • Once your butter is melted and bacon is done cooking to your liking turn your pot off.
  • Put your cooked brussels sprouts back into your pot and gently stir so they are all coated with your bacon/butter mixture. Squeeze your lemon juice on top, sprinkle seasonings and gently toss again.
  • Serve topped with parmesan cheese and chives if desired.
