This is a great way to liven up Brussels sprouts. The orange and ginger zing pair perfectly with the sprouts' floral flavors. I have a blood orange infused olive oil that I like to use with this recipe. It helps with the zing. Other dried fruits or nuts might be interesting experiments.

Didn't have orange juice, so I used the juice of an orange. No pecans, so I waited and put toasted almond slices on top to serve. Also, I quartered the brussel sprouts rather than have them all chopped up. As they cooked they separated wonderfully! No cranberries, so I added golden raisins with the ginger! Perfectly Perfect!

Good medly of flavors. I feel the ginger amount in the recipe is way too overpowering and would reduce it to 1/2 teaspoon then add to your taste liking from there - 1 TBSP is just way too much. Otherwise this is a nice change with yummy combo of tart and sweet and savory. Read More

The flavors go well together. I had to slice the Brussels Sprouts really thin to get that shredded look. Next time I might just quarter them! When I have some I'll give fresh cranberries a try in this recipe! Thanks for sharing it! Read More

Came across this recipe while looking for something that DIDN'T have bacon in it. I really liked the ginger orange combination and the sweet cranberries. However, I personally felt that the ginger was a little over-powering. Read More

I loved this recipe although I did make a few changes for our tastes. I used butter (just because I felt like it) I reduced the cranberries to 1/4 cup the ginger to 1 teaspoon and added 4 oz of crispy pancetta (because we can't find enough recipes to put it in). A pinch of cornstarch brought it to the perfect consistency immediately before serving. I cut my sprouts in half and blanched them for 4 minutes before adding them to the butter and the rest. Pecans:.....just a small handful chopped (I have a small hand).:-) Read More

Needed salt! I had to do substitutions (tangerine juice dried chopped dates and apricots) but it lacked a sprinkle of salt to draw out the flavor. Otherwise pretty good! Read More

The flavors blend so nicely together. I made it in my wok so cleaning up the stove was easier. Will be making this again! Read More

I made this recipe from a video I saw on this site that was very close to this one except it had no pecans cranberries and used dry ginger. I used fresh ginger and no nuts or berries and enjoyed these brussel sprouts but I think the nuts and berries would really compliment this very nicely. Thanks for taking this recipe a little further! I look forward to trying it your way! I suspect that would raise it to 5 stars! Read More
