I substituted brussel sprouts with carrots only bcuz it’s what I had. AND I happened to have a Lea & Perrin’s marinade-in-a-bag…with same flavor profile…in my pantry, so I used it. After marinating for an hour in fridge I followed this recipe.
I couldn’t make up my mind on mustard so I used both.
My FAVORITE…that I can afford.
Now…an iced chai while I wait on slow cooker to do all the work 😉
