Sauteed Brussel Sprout with Garlic

I have love and hate relationships with Brussels Sprouts!! I remember the first time I cooked this vegetable ,I was very much regrettably buying it coz it's taste bitter and hard.But I have never said die attitude,the second time I alter the method of cooking and love it ever since!
Brussels Sprouts look which resemble miniature cabbages,taste little bitter and very tender .They contain good amounts of vitamin A, vitamin C, folic acid and dietary fibre. Moreover, they are believed to protect against colon cancer, due to their containing sinigrin. Brussels sprouts are cruciferous. I like it because it's taste so creamy and crisp.


1 pound brussels sprouts

3 cloves fresh garlic ( chopped)

2 tbsp olive oil

1 tsp salt

1 tsp soy sauce

1 tbsp apple cider wine

1 red long pepper (chopped) *optional*


1:Wash the Brussels sprouts well. Trim the stem ends and remove any raggy outer leaves. Cut in half from stem to top ,microwave for 2 minutes in a medium bowl with some water and cover with wrapping film.Short cut way to blanched to removed the bitter taste.Remove steamed water before toss in the skillet.Don't over cooked in microwaves.

2: Heat skillet with olive oil at medium heat,add in chopped garlic,fry until lightly golden brown,then toss the half cooked Brussels sprouts together. Add in salt ,soy sauce and wine,toss again until all well combine.Don't over cooked or burn it.

3:Check the seasoning and toss in red long pepper.Dish out and serve immediately.

Oh yes,sometimes,I cooked with oyster sauce too,taste yummy!!

isn't great we can find different way to make this delicate vegetable?.

I think BS is much better than regular cabbage especially the texture!

P Kathy:
you know what my hubby not a fan of vegetables,but he love cheese so I cook this BS with cheese and bacon for him.try this way ,mayb u hubby like it.

When I cook for hubby I roast it wt cheese and bacon. I think sauteed is faster than roasting.thanks for dropping:)

I know what you mean.any western veges sell in asia is quite expensive..Nevermind la when you come back again to US ,eat all you want!

food 3 tots:
I didn't know what is the different between Australia and others.Usually what I bought are from our local farm or California.

I know brussels sprout is loaded with vitamins. But I cannot bring myself to like it yet. My friend convince me to try it again. He said steam it with some butter, apple cider vinegar, salt and pepper and I should fell in love with the taste.

I haven't had sprouts in years. My husband and son make a face when I suggest them but I think I'm going to just give it shot again. Pig Pig's suggestion of oyster sauce might be a good idea for us too. Your recipe sounds promising for my house of sprout haters!

I thought Hk have BS grown locally from China..If the demand is greater ,maybe ROC ppls will plants it near the border.

You mesti try it.But for the 1st time makan masak sampai very soft then add some butter.It's very buttery especially inside .I htink you will love it!

thanks for dropping by:) Yes,after I learn to eat it few times by now I love it.It's so buttery soft inside ,right?

Ok..bila I cuba buat kuih Cara guna acuan bahulu,I kasi tahu Mat ya.Tengok boleh jadi tak!.Terimakasih Mat:)

Oh yes,I love cooking my vegetables with oyster's not a bad idea using wiht BS! Maybe you sould use butter when you make BS for hubby and son for the 1 st,I think they will like it.

I didn't notice Malaysia do sell BS bigger size..Must ask my mom later..
