Mateo’s “Famous” Asian Brussels Sprouts
Crispy and sticky-sweet, yet without the added sugar you might find in some other recipes, these oven roasted Brussels sprouts are the perfect side dish! Even better, you only need four simple ingredients to prepare our healthy and delicious roasted Brussels sprouts recipe!
But perhaps the biggest plus is that they’re kid-approved! (My husband has a trick for making all veggies taste incredible, which I’ll share below).
These roasted Brussels sprouts with sweet soy glaze are my oldest daughter’s number one choice for vegetables. Trust me, when a kid requests your Brussels sprouts, you know you’ve got a winner!
I think it is that perfect combination of crispy Brussels sprouts and that sweet (but not too sweet) soy glaze. It’s irresistible!!
My husband (the chef in the family) spent months studying offerings at some of our favorite restaurants and testing out variations at home until he came up with this simple, yet delicious recipe.
I think he knocked it out of the park with this one!!

Step-by-step Photo Directions:
Rinse Brussels Sprouts under running water and shake (if in bag like shown above) or pat dry. Cut off the stems and score the bottom of sprouts (basically cutting an X in the bottom to allow the flavors to be better absorbed), shown below:
**TIP: As you are cutting, some of the leaves will fall off — KEEP THESE and add to mixing bowl with the sprouts. These leaves will crisp up in the oven and are actually the best part! You can even tear off a few extra leaves to have more of these “chips.”
Once the sprouts are trimmed, scored, and in a mixing bowl, add 1/4 cup soy sauce, 1TB rice vinegar, and 2TB mirin. (Notice our little “helper” in the background!)
Optional Add 1/4tsp brown sugar for a little extra sweetness.
Toss Brussels Sprouts in sauce to coat completely. You can cook right away, or let them soak for a few minutes to absorb more flavor.
Spread sprouts and leaves on a baking sheet covered in non-stick foil (or lightly coated with cooking spray).
Update 7/5/15: We stopped using foil after we found these reusable, non-stick silicon baking mats. They are awesome for any baking project!!
Bake at 350° for 20 minutes until crisp. You will smell the roasted Brussels sprouts when they are done! Enjoy!
