Den Miso Sauce:
  • 600 grams (21 ounces) sugar
  • 250 milliliters (1 cup) mirin 
  • 250 milliliters (1 cup) sake 
  • 900 grams (2 pounds) miso paste 
Brussels Sprouts:
  • Vegetable oil, for deep-frying, plus 1 tablespoon
  • 15 Brussels sprouts, halved 
  • 1 slice bacon, diced 
  • 1 clove garlic, sliced 
  • Sea salt, for sprinkling


For the miso sauce: Mix together the sugar, mirin and sake in a bowl (or the top half of a double boiler). Gradually add the miso paste, a little at a time, mixing everything together well. Set the bowl over a saucepan of simmering water and cook for two hours, stirring frequently.

For the Brussels sprouts: Heat the oil in a deep-fryer or a deep-sided skillet to 350 degrees F. Fry the Brussels sprouts until golden. Drain on paper towels.

Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a saute pan. Add the bacon and garlic and cook until the bacon turns golden. Stir in 1 tablespoon of the miso sauce, add the fried Brussels sprouts and toss well. Sprinkle with sea salt and serve.
