"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."

freshly grated ginger
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.
I had cherries rather than cranberries. They were way over powering. 1/4 cup would probably work better. I only put in 1tsp of fresh ginger because of previous ratings. It was not enough. 1/4 cup of orange juice evaporated the instant I added it. 3/4 cup lasted for the suggested 5 min.
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!
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). :-)
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!
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!
Delicious - liked by even non Brussel Sprout people. Reduce the carbs by using fresh squeezed orange juice.
Made this for thanksgiving and everyone loved it! Next time I will add some extra toasted pecans to top it off after making for a little added crunch.
