Thanksgiving dish. Brussels sprouts recipe. Spicy Brussels Sprouts with Chinese Cured Pork Belly

If you love brussels sprouts, you will enjoy this stir-fried brussels sprouts with Chinese cured pork belly.

Chinese cured pork belly is less smoky than bacon and has a sweet hint. It's enjoyed as a side dish when steamed. I like to cook it with vegetables.


  • Ingredients

  • 1 lb brussels sprouts, trimmed and cut in halves or quarters

  • 1/2 lb Chinese cured pork belly, cut into 1/8 inch pieces

  • 1 tbsp of coarsely cut ginger

  • 3 cloves of garlic, coarsely cut

  • 4 red chili peppers, coarsely cut

  • Light soy sauce

  • Vegetable oil (corn, canola, peanut)

  • Salt

  • Sugar


1. Blanch trimmed and cut brussels sprouts in boiling water for 2 min.

2. Shock the brussels sprouts in ice water. Then drain and pat dry.

3. Add 2 tsp vegetable oil to a wok or large all-purpose pan. Heat oil. Stir-fry ginger, garlic, chili peppers, and pork pieces over medium-high heat for a few min until the pork fat turns translucent.
