Today I will continue my adventure discovering how to cook Brussels sprouts with this recipe. I like the flavor that the black bean garlic sauce gives to the sprouts, plus you don’t have to add any salt because the sauce is salty. You can find this sauce in the Asian aisles of your local grocery store or you can order it online from Amazon (they have differend brands to choose from, like Kikkoman and Lee Kum Kee).
