This was very tasty, I didn't have peanut oil and used canola instead used low-sodium soy sauce with fresh sprouts. I would caution the 2-3 minutes on high for the garlic, it seemed to brown in less than a minute and I was afraid it would become bitter. This was quick to put together...don't forget the sesame oil at the end, I did initially and was glad I looked at the recipe one more time. I also drizzled a bit of seasoned rice vinegar on the finished dish for contrast. Thanks for posting.

Awesome. I toasted the sesame seeds first. I also deglazed the pan with some rice wine and reduced that down to serve as a sauce along side. Very yummy.

We like brussel sprouts anyway, but the sauce was very good. Sauteed the sprouts until crisp/tender and then added the sauce ingredients. Next time will pre-mix those as the ginger didn't disperse as well as I'd like (my fault), but the method change made this a one-pan dish. thanks for sharing.
