Step by Step Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 425°.

Step 2

On a large rimmed baking sheet, toss brussels sprouts with olive oil and season with pepper.

Step 3

Bake until the brussels sprouts are tender and slightly crispy, about 20 minutes. Transfer brussels sprouts to a large bowl (but keep the baking sheet close by). Preheat broiler.

Step 4

In a small skillet over medium heat, heat sesame oil. Add garlic and cook, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in cornstarch. Add soy sauce, water, apple cider vinegar, hoisin sauce, brown sugar, and garlic chili paste. Season with salt (if needed, being careful to not over salt, otherwise the dish may turn out too salty), pepper, and red pepper flakes. Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer until thickened, about 3 minutes.

Step 5

Pour sauce over brussels sprouts and toss to combine. Return brussels sprouts to baking sheet and broil until brussels sprouts are glazed and sticky.

Step 6

Garnish with peanuts, sesame seeds, and green onions.

These are soooo good! And super easy to make. We'll be making these again, but I'll cut back on the soy sauce. Even though I used low-sodium soy sauce, it was too much for my taste (I don't like much salt at all...), so not the fault of the recipe. I liked that we could tailor the spiciness to our taste. This is a keeper!
