1 lb Brussel sprouts, trimmed and cut in half
2 slices bacon, julienned
1 teaspoon ginger, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 1/2 teaspoon togarashi
1/8 cup sugar
1/4 cup fish sauce
1/4 cup water
Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add julienned bacon. Cook until bacon pieces are crisp and remove them onto a paper towel.
Add the ginger and garlic to the skillet, stirring and scraping the bottom of the pan to remove any cooked on bacon bits. Cook until garlic and ginger are browned but not burnt.
Add Brussel sprouts to the skillet, sprinkle with togarashi, tossing well to coat the sprouts evenly. Cook until they begin to brown, about 8 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Mix fish sauce, sugar and water together and pour over Brussel sprouts. Return bacon bits to the skillet. Cook until sauce reduces by half, about another 6 minutes.
