Brussel sprouts are quite new to my diet. At first, I thought they are just miniature cabbages. So, I never really paid attention to them until I learned this recipe from the Nobu cookbook. Ever since then, brussel sprouts have become a staple to our grocery list. How do I use brussel sprouts in Korean dishes? I throw in a couple of heads into soybean paste soup. When they are cooked in the soup, they become infused with the soybean flavors . And those bite-size heads are so soft and sweet.
Just like Cabbage Steak, this is another signature dish by Nobu where he uses the minimum required ingredients to bring out the very best of the flavors in those ingredients.
