"Quite a while back, I was visiting my friend Katy, and started flipping through pages of her Kenmore microwave book. At that time I was "playing" with all kinds of Chinese recipes, so I copied this recipe for hoisin sauce. I've had a request to post it here on Zaar."

  1. This turned out good just like the store bought. Same taste, same consistency and so much cheaper to make. This only took a few minutes to make. I only made half a batch not knowing how long it will keep. I used everything but the tomato paste, I didn't want to open a whole can for only 1 Tbl. so I used ketchup instead. Still turned out great.

  2. Thank you so much for posting this. I love the fact that I can control what goes in this sauce and the taste is AMAZING!!! Didn't have sherry so I left it out, and added probably 1/4-1/2 cup sugar as another reviewer did, and also used fresh ginger . I made this on the stove top, and it takes no time at all. I would never buy bottled after tasting this. Thank you so much I will be making this often.

  3. This is so easy, makes plenty, and is so rich with good flavor, store bought hoisin cannot come close to this! I shop at asian markets and nothing you buy can taste this good! It does not have that cloying sweetness that ruins so many commercial hoisin sauces. It is PERFECT! And you can adjust to your taste as others report doing by adding 5-spice or chopped scallions, sesame oil, etc.

  4. This was easy and delicious! I did have to make a few substitutions: for beef broth I used chicken broth, and for sherry I used white wine. I also prefer the sauce a little bit sweeter, so I added about 1 Tbsp each of brown sugar and honey. This made a good 2 1/2 cups of hoisin sauce, which I will use completely over the next few weeks while playing Chinese New Year Tag! Thanks, Breez!

  5. I made this on the stove and mixed the cornstarch with a little water, then added it to the mixture once it boiled. I also substituted vegetable broth for the beef broth. We had it over tofu and broccoli with brown rice. Delicious!

I'm a flatlander that lives out on the prairie a couple hundred miles or so East of Denver....oops, that must put me in another state.I was raised on all the foods that someone decided we aren't supposed to eat any more. Fresh whole milk, heavy cream, home made butter, fried chicken and potatoes & gravy, fresh made dinner rolls and so many more wonderful foods. I learned to cook that way too.My favorite cook book is a 1943 Navy cookbook titled "Cooking on Shipboard." I found it at a D.A.V. store for $2.95. All recipes are for 100 servings. I've never fixed a full recipe of anything in the book, but it's a joy to have it in my collection.
