Hoisin sauce is normally used as a favorite BBQ sauce in Chinese cuisine for chicken, pork or beef. If you want to make those lovely red BBQ pork strips, just add a few “red seeds (ang khak)” to the recipe, and the meat will turn naturally red. Sieve the mixture after allowing it to absorb the colour.
Though it’s much easier to buy the ready-made Hoisin sauces available in the stores, it’s very practical to know how you make them yourselves too, when the shops are closed.
3 tbsp light soy sauce
3 tbsp black bean sauce
1 tbsp honey
2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp vinegar
2 clove fresh bgarlic (pressed)
1 tsp sesame oil
3 tbsp chilly sauce
dash of pepper
Mix all ingredients well in a big bowl. Thats it :-)
