An easy recipe for Brussels sprouts. The mix of honey and soy sauce give it an original and interesting flavor. Serve with plain rice, white or whole grain. Great with sausages or pork chops. I do not add salt and pepper, as the bouillon cube, soy sauce, and bacon give enough flavor for our taste. You may cook the sprouts in a microwave instead of boiling if you prefer.

  • Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Transfer bacon to a paper towel-lined plate, leaving bacon drippings in the skillet.

  • Cook and stir onion in bacon drippings until transparent and tender, about 10 minutes. Add honey and soy sauce; stir until liquid starts to bubble, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in Brussels sprouts, bacon, raisins, and pine nuts; cook until Brussels sprouts are heated through and well coated, 3 to 5 minutes. Garnish with sesame seeds before serving.

Tasty tender and gone off every ones dinner plate. This is a keeper for me. Easy to make and so full of flavor. I have made this many times since I wrote this review and find that fresh Brussels sprout and a low sodium chicken or vegetable broth works just as well.06/05/14 Read More

I made this last night with a few revisions. It was OUTSTANDING! I cut theBrussels Sprouts in half and roasted them with a little olive oil at 450 for about 15 minutes to give them a nice roasted flavor. Then I combined them with the bacon, onion, pine nuts and cut the soya sauce and honey in half. I will make this again. Read More

Thanks for posting this! I recently had a brussels sprouts appetizer at Cafe Melissa's in Avon Lake OH. I came home to look for a similar recipe and luckily found yours! Prior to this weekend I avoided brussels sprouts but I am a new convert! I think the Asian flavors work well with the cabbage flavor of the sprouts. Read More

I used half honey, half maple syrup, skipped the pine nuts and raisin. I let the Brussel sprouts simmer for ten minutes and they turned out delicious! Read More

Instead of boiling I roasted these with olive oil after cutting the ends off and halving them no bouillon used. Followed the recipe for everything else and they came out amazing. A little bit of Sriracha at the end gives it the perfect kick. Read More

I made some variations to this dish to accommodate what I had on hand. I look forward to making the dish as written though because I'm sure it'll be even better. Read More

I made mine vegan friendly. I used fresh brussels sprouts and steamed them in vegetable broth. I used olive oil instead of bacon drippings and added 3 cloves of garlic. I'm not a fan of brussels sprouts at all. I made it for my daughter who is vegan and she gave it 5 stars. Next time I think I'll add fresh ginger. Read More
