Hoisin Sauce Recipe

Recipe by gailanng

Oh, the waste of expired hoisin that I've thrown away! A small-batch recipe that's easy to whip up. This does NOT taste exactly like store bought, but can get you through a recipe with darn good results. Sriracha Asian Sweet Hot Sauce works best.

This hoisin sauce is really good. Even better than store-bough. I used peanut butter and molasses. Thanks Gailanng :) Made for the Australian recipe swap for June 2011

  1. Place all ingredients in a Mason jar and shake until it emulsifies.
  2. Note 1: May need to increase peanut butter/black bean paste to taste. Use no more than 2 tablespoons, but please, start with one tablespoon.
  3. Note 2: Can sub 1 toe fresh garlic for powdered. Work with mortar and pestle the fresh garlic and jalapeno until it forms a paste.
