What is Hoisin Sauce?
It's a thick, dark condiment made from fermented soybeans, garlic, sugar, and chiles. Some brands add vinegar or sesame, and others thicken it with flour.
What does it taste like?
It has a very strong salty and slightly sweet taste. Because of the fermentation, it has a complex flavor and tons of umami.
Hoisin sauce uses
- Dipping sauce: It's a famous accompaniment to Peking duck or Chinese roast duck.
- Marinade: It can be used to marinate meats, especially barbeque dishes, like Char siu.
- Stir-fry sauce: Add it to stir-fry sauces to add savory depth and bring out the other flavors.
