How to make hoisin sauce at home

Sometimes you simply can’t buy hoisin sauce at grocery shop.

I don’t use this sauce frequently and I don’t like dosens of half bottles of sauces in the fridge.

Instead of having dosens of half full sauce bottles in my fridge, I would rather make fresh when I need this kind of a sauce.

Only a few minutes to make a fresh sauce.


4 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
2 teaspoons rice wine vinegar
1 garlic clove, finely minced
2 teaspoons sesame seed oil
1 teaspoon hot sauce (to your tasting)
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
