Hoisin Sauce

Total: 10 minutes
Prep: 10 minutes
Yield: ½ cup

Hoisin is an Asian barbecue sauce that is used to flavor and season many Asian dishes. I like to make my own since it’s cheaper and the ingredients are simple to find. This condiment is very salty and sweet, so a little can really go far; most recipes call for only a small amount of hoisin sauce to enhance the dish.



  1. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk until everything is well incorporated. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.


  • You can also use a blender for this recipe, but since the amounts are so small it’s easier to use a hand whisk.
