  1. Cut an X on the bottom of each stem end of the Brussels sprouts and peel away any leaves that are discolored or loose.
  2. Steam the Brussels sprouts in a covered pot, over rapidly boiling water, until tender, about 8 to 10 minutes.
  3. Quarter each sprout lengthwise and set aside.
  4. In a dry skillet, over medium heat, render the fat from the bacon, about 5 minutes; add the minced shallot and cook 1 minute.
  5. Add the chestnuts and chicken broth, cover, and simmer until chestnuts are tender and sweet, about 10 minutes.
  6. Add vinegar, Brussels sprouts, and cook about 5 minutes; season to taste with salt and pepper and a little more vinegar, if needed.
