How to Make It

Combine water, sugar, vinegar, soy sauce, fish sauce, and crushed red pepper in a small bowl, stirring until sugar dissolves. Let stand at least 20 minutes. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add sesame oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add Brussels sprouts to pan in a single layer, cut side down. Cook, without stirring, 5 minutes or until cut sides are evenly browned. Turn sprouts, and reduce heat to medium; cook 3 minutes or until crisp-tender. Increase heat to medium-high. Add fish sauce mixture to pan, tossing to coat sprouts. Cook 1 minute or until liquid evaporates.

Easy and tasty

The taste of roasted Brussel Sprouts without heating up the oven.  The sauce is good without overpowering the sprouts.

Delicious Brussels Sprouts

The flavor of the sauce is absolutely delicious.  Made exactly as described. The sear from the hot pan on the brussels sprouts adds more flavor. If you don't like Brussels sprouts, try these!
