Based on a recipe from Marlene Koch’s book, Fantastic Food with Splenda. She says in its intro, “Hoisin is a thick, sweet, spicy condiment used extensively in Asian cuisine. In addition to being spread on pancakes for mu shu pork, it is used for delicious stir-fry barbecue sauces like this one.” She also offers this tip: “Hoisin is made from soybeans, chilies, garlic, ginger, and sugar. Brands vary quite a bit from one to another. It should be very dark and have a complex flavor. Koon Chun is one preferred brand.” Prep and cook times do not include the marinating time.
