This sauce is awesome on chicken and beef recipes that normally call for barbeque sauce. I might even try it on pork blades on the grill.

This is excellent, and a lot less sugar than the store bought stuff. I think I may put bit of a kick to it next time, since I like a bit of spice. Read More

1.3.17 Will cut back a bit on the soy sauce in the future. The one thing that wasn t quite right about this was the consistency. Hoisin sauce s texture is much thicker. You need a spoon to get hoisin sauce out of a jar but you can pour this. I did add a bit more peanut butter in an effort to thicken it a bit and that helped a little. This will work in a pinch and was pretty good with a stir-fried beef and veggie dish for lunch. Read More

I made this today and WOW! I used 2 cloves of minced garlic, and a dash of molasses as well. I mixed with the cuisine hand mixer to completely incorporate the minced garlic. It came out a little thin, so I added 1tsp of cornstarch and let it simmer for 2 min on the stove. That thickened it up well. Read More

Much better than processed, junk-filled sauce from the store. I subbed molasses for the brown sugar, and used rice wine vinegar. After tasting (and rating) the recipe as written, I adjusted to suit my family's taste, as follows: added a couple teaspoons chili-garlic sambal, a pinch of chinese 5-spice, and a lil extra vinegar. This gave it the kick I needed. Yummy! Total keeper. Next time I'll make a bigger batch and keep it handy. Read More

I used this for a wonton soup recipe it was very good and used ingredients I had on hand. I ony had natural peanut butter so the sauce wasn't smooth but that was fine. For the Chinese hot sauce and black pepper I used Sambal Oleck instead. I would defintely use again when I need Hoisin sauce instead of buying. #AllrecipesAllstarsCanada #LunarNewYear Read More

It didn’t taste anything like hoisin sauce, surprisingly. This was actually pretty similar to peanut sauce, however, another popular Vietnamese/Thai dipping condiment. Read More
