I use Hoisin Sauce when I make Orange Chicken. But I don’t always have the product in my pantry. For those times, here’s my recipe for Homemade Hoisin Sauce. It works very well and is easy to make.

For those who might not know, Hoisin Sauce is a sweet-spicy condiment used in Asian dishes. But you could also use it as a dipping sauce for spring rolls or for my Egg Roll Recipe. 

Most of the ingredients are basics that I keep in my pantry. Two of the less used items are rice vinegar and peanut oil. The rest are pretty common to most households.

  • soy sauce (low sodium)
