These Brussels sprouts pair nicely with both Asian dishes and roasted meats. The trick to these is getting that nice brown roasted look and flavor without burning them.
- Toast sesame seeds in large non-stick skillet and set aside.
- In a large non-stick skillet over medium heat, warm olive oil. Add garlic and Brussels sprouts. Saute for 15 - 20 minutes, allowing to caramelize as that gives them a lot of flavor. (if they start to burn or stick to the bottom of the skillet, add 1-2 tablespoons of water to delgaze pan. Being careful not to add to much).
- When sprouts are brown and tender toss with sherry, sesame oil, and sesame seeds.
- Remove from heat and serve.
Very tasty! I made 1/2 the recipe and didn't have plain sesame seed so used the black seeds I had (didn't toast) and it was still good. Made for Everyday Holiday.
Love brussels sprouts, and these were just delicious. I halved the recipe, and cut some of my brussels sprouts smaller because they were large. Otherwise, I made as posted. Very nice way to make and serve brussels sprouts. Thanks for sharing!
Really enjoyed these great Brussels sprouts! I used quite a bit less sesame oil than called for, otherwise made as directed. These caramelized beautifully and the garlic and sesame were a perfect combination with the nutty flavor of the sprouts. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for Fall Pick-A-Chef 2011
