Brussels Sprout Garlic Stir-Fry

Brussels Sprout Garlic Stir-Fry

This is a great way to enjoy Brussels sprouts. The bitterness of the vegetable may be off-putting for some, but it'll mellow out in this recipe.

Ingredients: 2 - 3 servings

Brussels sprouts
about 15
5 cloves
Olive oil
about 2 tablespoons
about 350 ~ 450 ml
Salt and pepper
to taste


1. Slice 3 cloves of garlic. Lightly crush the remaining 2 cloves with the flat of a knife.
2. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Add 2 cloves of crushed garlic, and stir-fry until fragrant. Add the Brussels sprouts, and continue stir-frying until the surfaces become lightly browned.
3. When they start to brown, add 350 ~ 450 ml of water and salt, bring to a boil over high heat.
4. When the liquid is almost gone, pour in 1 tablespoon of olive oil, add the sliced garlic and pepper, and continue stir-frying over a medium-high heat. When the sliced garlic is browned, it's done.

Story Behind this Recipe

I tried to copy the Brussels sprouts dish that I ate at Thanksgiving last year. The bitter taste of Brussels sprouts disappears completely thanks to the garlic, and they're really delicious.
