  • 1 12-ounce bag brussel sprouts halved (quartered if very large)
  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • ¼ cup kung pao sauce

Wasabi Ranch

  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon ranch seasoning
  • 1 ½ teaspoon wasabi paste


Kung Pao Brussel Sprouts

  • Toss the halved or quartered brussel sprouts with cornstarch.  Shake off excess corn starch.
  • In a large cast iron skillet or sauté pan, heat the oil over high heat.  Sauté 3-5 minutes on each side until well browned and slightly charred.
  • Turn off heat and toss the sprouts with Kung Pao Sauce.
  • In a small bowl, combine the sour cream, ranch and wasabi.  Drizzle over the top or serve along side for dipping.
  • Optional: crushed wasabi peas for garnish.
