Hoisin Sauce

I was making an Asian themed dinner and realized the marinade for the chicken required hoisin sauce and of course I didn’t have any. Thankfully, the site I found the marinade recipe on, Up Close & Tasty, also had a hoisin sauce recipe which I happened to have all of the ingredients for! It’s not a traditional hoisin sauce but it’s delicious just the same. This sauce can be used in marinades, sauces, vinaigrettes, and dips. Store the extra sauce in a sealed container in the refrigerator.

Combine the soy sauce, peanut butter, honey, rice vinegar, minced garlic, sesame oil, and sriracha together in a bowl. Whisk until well combined. Set aside for 10-15 minutes before using to allow the flavors to combine.

Store remaining sauce in a sealed container in the refrigerator.

    I am sure it is better than the store bought since it is fresh a pure.
    It would be perfect to dip or a marinade.

    Have a beautiful Easter season. Blessings, Catherine xo

    I never even thought of making my own.
    How smart are you?
    I mean I use the stuff on everything! And it’s not cheap.
    Excellent idea!

    This sauce sounds delicious! I think I have almost all of those ingredients at home right now. I bet this would be great on steak.

    Making your own hoisin sauce is such a great idea. Will have to try it. I sometimes don’t like the flavor of the bottled ones.
