When I start exploring about sauces, this one turned out to be the most intriguing. Usually, I used to buy this sauce from the store but never thought of what actually goes into making it. My Chinese friend Benky Yuong helped me to reveal its ingredients. I was amazed to find out that so simple ingredients can make this barbecue flavored awesome sauce and made my mind to prepare at home.
Usually, I used to buy this sauce from the store but never thought of what actually goes into making it.
- 1 tablespoon Honey
- ¼ cup Light soy sauce
- 2 tablespoon Rice vinegar
- 1 Garlic clove grated
- 2 tablespoon Peanut butter
- 2 teaspoon Sesame oil
- 1⁄8 teaspoon Black pepper
- 1 teaspoon Thai chili sauce
- ¼ teaspoon Five-spice powder
Take a bowl and add all the ingredients.
Now whisk all the ingredients continuously until you get a glazing brownish color and thicker consistency.
When it’s done, store in an air-tight jar in the refrigerator for up to a month.
This sauce adds a great subtle flavor to the dishes which will get satisfied with the taste. I think it doesn’t make sense to buy hoisin from the store, rather make it at your home and store in the pantry to enjoy happy hours.
