Do you Love Brussels Sprouts?
This Brussels Sprouts Recipe is Oven Roasted with an Asian Fusion. That’s why it’s called Sweet and Sour Brussels Sprouts. In my opinion these are better served cold. These are oven roasted and designed to be served hot, but if you have any leftovers and you go back to that refrigerator the next day, trust me, DON’T REHEAT THEM. You’re going to love the way they taste cold, like an Asian cold vegetable salad. Even my kids, ages 2 and 4, were devouring these. So this recipe is a definite must try, this Holiday Season!
Oven Roasted Brussels Sprouts
The secret to these Sweet and Sour Brussels Sprouts is in the Sauce. It’s a Soy based recipe that is cooked and reduced down to more of a glaze than anything. But the balance, between the Sweet & Sour, is perfect and it comes from a combination of Vinegar and Brown Sugar. This is fairly common in many Asian recipes. Even my Garlic Noodle recipe has a vinegar/sugar combo that really makes it pop. So get use to this equation and add the other stereo typical ingredients, Garlic and Ginger, to your cooking and you’ll be well on your way to perfecting Americanized Chinese food.
