  • Summary

    Brussels sprouts caramelize to a deep, delicious brown while retaining a fresh bite in minutes when cooked on the stovetop. In this adaptation of wok stir-frying, the sprouts quickly sear in a single layer in a skillet, then steam through with a splash of water to tenderize their tough cores. Crushed garlic cloves release their aroma into the hot oil, but are in chunks big enough to not burn and get bitter. A final sprinkle of sugar, soy sauce and red-pepper flakes give the sprouts a nice balance of sweet, salty and spicy. You can eat this with other stir-fries and steamed rice or alongside any main dish. Leftovers, reheated or cold, can be tossed into grain bowls and salads.

    Ingredients

    • Neutral oil, such as grapeseed or canola oil

    • 1 pound brussels sprouts, halved or quartered, if large
    • Salt and pepper
    • 1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
    • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
