So good! This is our favorite way to make brussel sprouts. Mine don't brown (use hard anodized pan) but I guess that doesn't matter. I leave out the salt and it's still good! We've also tried the curry variation - also a winner. Thank you so much for sharing this with us. This is our new favorite recipe and we have it once a week or more. Can't wait to try other variations.

So easy and delicious. I used bermuda onion because it was what I had on hand, and microplaned my ginger because it was frozen. Definitely going to be a menu staple from now on!

Used scallions instead of white onion and finished it off with some balsamic glaze!

This was a nice change from my normal Brussels sprouts. It was easy to make and a good mix of flavors.

Always looking for ways to get those veggies in--this is a great recipe! The shredding added a whole new taste dimension.

This is an excellent, healthy side dish! I ended up using too much ginger, which I will be sure to not do in the future. The Chinese students I host loved the strong ginger flavor, but it was overbearing for the rest of us. Stick to the recipe as is - it's a winner!

Great flavor profile. I was confused over the directions, and I sauteed the Brussels Sprouts in the oil instead of in a dry pan. I will make these again, for sure.

We have always liked "brussies," but this adds a new dimension to this wonderful little cabbage-like veggie. Instead of the water, I added some white cooking wine, Excellent. As a volunteer field editor I am happy to give this recipe five stars.
