A dinner-time staple gets an Asian-inspired makeover with this zesty and meaty recipe. Roasting the Brussels sprouts tames their slight bitterness, giving them a hint of sweetness that pairs so well with the salty flavor of soy sauce, and the spicy heat of the ginger and sriracha. The ham gives the dish a richness and adds another salty element for highly concentrated flavor. Prep time on this side is minimal and the overall time of only 45 minutes allows for the rest of the meal to come together easily. Pair these Brussels sprouts with a simple roasted pork tenderloin and some brown rice. To get your pork ready at the same time, sprinkle it with salt and pepper and sear it on all sides in a cast iron skillet. Place that skillet in the same oven with the sprouts for 20 minutes or until the internal temperature reads at least 145 degrees.
