Hoisin Barbecue Sauce

  • SERVINGS: Makes about 1 cup
  • FAST

Like ketchup in an American barbecue sauce, the Chinese condiment, hoisin, provides a satisfying contrast of sweet, salty and aromatic flavors.

  1. 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  2. 2 garlic cloves, minced
  3. 1/2 cup hoisin sauce
  4. 1 tablespoon light soy sauce
  5. 3 tablespoons sake or dry sherry
  6. 1 tablespoon ketchup
  7. 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  8. 1/2 teaspoon Asian sesame oil
  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a small saucepan and cook the garlic over moderately low heat until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add the hoisin sauce, soy sauce, sake, ketchup and rice vinegar and simmer over moderately low heat, stirring, until thickened, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the sesame oil. Let cool and serve.
Make Ahead The hoisin barbecue sauce can be refrigerated for 2 days. Serve With Grilled Szechwan Chicken with Hoisin Barbecue Sauce
