Brussel Sprouts, Bacon, Raisins in Cider Pan Sauce

Had never had brussel sprouts before. And figured it was high tide I tried 'em out! Following this recipe from Epicurious which was delicious. Here's the gist:

Cook 2 strips bacon. Stick bacon on plate.

In same pan, brown 2 C brussel sprouts (trimmed & cut into halves or quarters) in the bacon fat with liberal amount of salt & pepper, 5 min.

Add 1/8 C raisins, 1/4 C diced white onion and a knob of butter. Stir to combine and cook until onion softens, 3-5 minutes.

Add 1/4 C chicken broth, bring to a simmer (uncovered) and cook until the sauce reduces, scraping up the brown bits on the bottom of the pan.

Finally, add 1 TB apple cider vinegar. Top with chopped bacon. Serve hot with pan juices.
