  • Summary

    This Asian-inspired dish incorporates two essential condiments: hot chile paste and fish sauce. The chile paste gives the pork a great kick, while the salty, pungent fish sauce brings out the umami in the Brussels sprouts. If you've never tried fish sauce, never fear. Just like Worcestershire sauce, fish sauce is a wonderful way to add depth of flavor to a dish (and you can find it in the Asian section of most supermarkets). The funkiness will vary from brand to brand, so taste as you go.
