"This recipe is easy to make and tastes great. Amounts can be adjusted to suit individual tastes to make it more or less sweet and spicy. Black bean paste can be used in placed of the peanut butter. Goes well with chicken, pork, beef, wild game and dim sum."

    Cooking gluten free often means making what you need from scratch to avoid contaminants. I used trusted ingredients from my pantry to put this recipe together and could rest easy knowing the dish I prepared was truly gluten free. The side benefit to making your own homemade condiments, etc, is avoiding preservatives or other undesirable ingredients such as MSG. I really appreciate this recipe. It was terrific! One thing I would suggest is mixing the peanut butter and honey together well first, then slowly incorporating the soy sauce, oil and remaining ingredients. I threw them all together as directed and found that it took lots of elbow grease with the whisk to get the peanut butter to incorporate with everything else. When I make this recipe, I double the ingredients and freeze the extra in ice cube trays, to always have some ready to go. Most trays hold 1 Tb in each compartment, making it super easy to measure out.

    This was surprisingly good!! I didn't realize it would be SO much better than store-bought. Really loved the noodles that I made with it. Will no longer buy hoisin after having this!

    I have to be very careful with ingredients due to food allergies and fussy palates, while this recipe will suit my purpose I find it odd that when you offer a "home made" recipe it still includes a commercial product, the Chinese hot sauce. I had to go back another step to see what was in that and make that as well. In my opinion a home made recipe should be basic ingredients, or am I being too fussy here.

    THIS IS DELICIOUS! Way better than store bought, and without all the crappy ingredients, like corn syrup. I’ve thought about buying at the store a number of times but didn’t want the processed ingredients. I didn’t know it was so easy to make!

    I made it because in the time of Covid 19, there wasn't any at my grocery store. I thought it was delicious, and very easy to make. I had all the ingredients at home.

    Five stars, fav sauce for my homemade gfree "egg rolls" (all veggie, even the cabbage leaf wraps). I use coconut aminos in place of the soy sauce, and I prefer raw honey to the molasses. I've found that heating the peanut butter gently to a melt, adding in the honey, and then adding in the other ingredients makes for a super fast whisking of. Super yummy,thank you!

    Missing fermented black soybean paste, Chinese five spice, red chiles, and sometimes prunes (for a sweeter sauce).

    I was so grateful to find this recipe as I needed Hoisin Sauce for recipe #252649 (Hoisin Pork Chops with Pineapple Green Onion Relish) and this turned out perfectly. According to what I had on hand, I used black bean paste in place of peanut butter, the honey option, and white wine vinegar in place of rice vinegar. This is a perfect MYO recipe - thank you, Alskann :)

    Thanks so much for this recipe! I've been craving Japanese beef ribs for ages now but I can't have soy due to a recent allergy development . I used coconut aminos from my local health food store as it is a great substitute for soy sauce and sunflower seed butter in place of the peanut butter and it turned out marvelous! Thanks again!

    Turned out great! I used sunflower butter instead of peanut butter and omitted the garlic (food intolerance's)<br/><br/>Thanks for sharing
