Hoisin Sauce - Microwave

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Breez

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.
