Sweet & Sour Brussels Sprouts

  • Author: Chef Isaac Toups
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 1 hour, 30 minutes
  • Total Time: 1 hour, 40 minutes
  • Yield: 810 servings 1x

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 pound Brussels sprouts (if small, leave whole, if large, halve or quarter)
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Sweet and Sour Sauce (recipe below)

Sweet & Sour Sauce


Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Toss the Brussels sprouts, oil, salt, and pepper in a mixing bowl to season. Arrange in a baking sheet large enough for the sprouts to fit in a single layer. Roast for 20 minutes, until nicely charred. 
  2. Let cool on baking sheet for 2 minutes. Transfer sprouts to a mixing bowl, drizzle with 2 tablespoons sauce, and toss until Brussels sprouts are well coated.

Sweet & Sour Sauce

  1. Heat all the ingredients in a small saucepan over medium heat until simmering. Reduce the heat to low and maintain a simmer for 55 minutes, swirling the pan every 5 minutes, until the liquid reduces to about 1 cup. As it reduces, there will be sugar on the rim that will start to char, so swirling will take that sugar back into the liquid. This will burn if you look at it wrong because of all the sugar, so the swirling is important.
  2. The shelf life on this sauce is longer than human civilization. It’s got so much salt and vinegar in it, you could drop a raw fish in and it and it would be fine. It’s basically a preservative at this point. What I’m saying: You can make giant batches and it will keep for a looooooong time. So do it.
