  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Trim stems and remove wilted leaves from Brussels sprouts; rinse under cold water. In a large bowl, combine the water, salt, sugar, and soy sauce, stirring until all of the sugar and salt have dissolved. Add sprouts to the brine mixture (make sure they are submerged). Brine for 1 hour.
  2. Drain the Brussels sprouts, do not rinse. Toss the sprouts with olive oil and black pepper. Bake in an uncovered baking dish for 35 to 40 minutes, until crisp on the outside and tender on the inside, or desired doneness.

This was prepared as written and I couldn't taste anything but common brussells sprouts. No improvment at all.

I lovE the recipe. I added balsamic vinegar to the olive oil when cooking. I also added crisped pancetta and trader Joe's roasted peppers. YUM!!!!

I only had enough to make half recipe but I trimmed and cut the sprouts in half and I think it helped them to absorb salt better. I then mixed oil wth balsamic vinegar and a little minced garli...

Worked beautifully

Followed all instructions. Taste was plain and leaving them in for 35 minutes will burn them.....
