  • Trim stems and any yellow leaves from Brussels sprouts. Cut each sprout lengthwise into quarters.
  • In a cup, stir together soy sauce, grated ginger and sesame oil.
  • Meanwhile, in nonstick 12-inch skillet heat olive oil over medium heat until hot. Add onion and cook about 5 minutes or until it begins to soften, stirring occasionally.
  • Increase heat to medium high, add Brussels sprouts and water; cover and cook about 5 minutes or until sprouts are beginning to soften and brown, stirring once.
  • Remove cover from skillet and cook about 5 minutes longer or until sprouts are tender-crisp, stirring frequently. Remove skillet from heat; stir in soy sauce mixture.

  1. I did not like this and was going to rate it as such but then realized that I didn't use fresh ginger so that wouldn't be fair. Also I let the sprouts get mushy which wasn't the recipe's fault! Regardless though, I don't think this will work for me even if I did make all the necessary changes. I added some extra soy sauce mixed with maple syrup to salvage it. Everyone is different though so don't let my review deter you!
  2. This was really tasty and a nice change from roasting. I followed the recipe exactly. DH said, "Make it again."
  3. Best Brussels Sprouts recipe ever. The flavors are just incredible.
  4. This was a pretty tasty meal for my first time trying Brussels Sprouts. I will definitely make again although I'll peel the ginger next time instead of grate it.
  5. This is a great way to have brussel sprouts! I made 3/4 of the recipe (one pound of fresh brussel sprouts) for 3 people.


I have been a member of recipezaar and for years. This is definitely my go-to place for recipes and love that I can have all my individual cookbooks to sort and store recipes. ? I like to experiment when I cook and find that I rarely follow a recipe as it is written. I am also pretty health conscious and try to cook low-fat for regular everyday meals (you can't skimp on the rich stuff for holiday meals & treats!). I also avoid processed foods and use fresh wholesome ingredients whenever possible.
