Honey Garlic Roasted Brussel Sprouts

Recipe courtesy of I am a Food Blog



12 small brussels sprouts

1/2 tablespoon oil

2 tablespoons honey

1 tablespoon soy sauce

3 cloves garlic, minced

freshly ground pepper



Wash the sprouts, trim off the ends, and remove the raggedy outer leaves. Cut sprouts in half and toss them with the oil.

Heat up a large heavy-bottomed skillet over medium heat. Place the sprouts in the pan, cut side down, in a single layer, cover and cook for 5 minutes. They will only be the slightest bit brown. At this point, you’re essentially steaming so the insides are tender.

While the sprouts are steaming, make the honey garlic sauce: heat up the honey, soy and garlic in a small saucepan over medium heat until bubbly and thick. Set aside.

When the sprouts are tender, uncover, turn up the heat and brown until the sprouts are deeply caramelized, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat, toss with the honey garlic sauce and season with a good amount of freshly ground pepper. Enjoy hot.
