    Breez's Note:

    Quite a while back, I was visiting my friend Katy, and started flipping through pages of her Kenmore microwave book. At that time I was "playing" with all kinds of Chinese recipes, so I copied this recipe for hoisin sauce. I've had a request to post it here on Zaar.

      This turned out good just like the store bought. Same taste, same consistency and so much cheaper to make. This only took a few minutes to make. I only made half a batch not knowing how long it will keep. I used everything but the tomato paste, I didn't want to open a whole can for only 1 Tbl. so I used ketchup instead. Still turned out great.

      Thank you so much for posting this. I love the fact that I can control what goes in this sauce and the taste is AMAZING!!! Didn't have sherry so I left it out, and added probably 1/4-1/2 cup sugar as another reviewer did, and also used fresh ginger . I made this on the stove top, and it takes no time at all. I would never buy bottled after tasting this. Thank you so much I will be making this often.

      This was easy and delicious! I did have to make a few substitutions: for beef broth I used chicken broth, and for sherry I used white wine. I also prefer the sauce a little bit sweeter, so I added about 1 Tbsp each of brown sugar and honey. This made a good 2 1/2 cups of hoisin sauce, which I will use completely over the next few weeks while playing Chinese New Year Tag! Thanks, Breez!
