Easy Hoisin Sauce Recipe

When I started exploring sauces, this one turned out to be the most intriguing. Usually, I used to buy this sauce from the store but never thought of what goes into making it. Then, my Chinese friend helped me to reveal its ingredients. I was amazed to find out that so simple ingredients can make this barbecue-flavoured awesome hoisin sauce, and it made my mind to prepare it at home.

Usually, I used to buy hoisin sauce from the store but never thought of what goes into making it. This sauce perfect goes with any grilled burgers. And it’s a plus that it’s homemade.

  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • ¼ cup light soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic grated
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Thai chili sauce
  • ¼ teaspoon five-spice powder


  • Take a bowl and add all the ingredients.
  • Now whisk all the ingredients continuously until you get a brownish glazing colour and thicker consistency.
  • When it’s done, store it in an air-tight jar in the refrigerator for up to a month.
  • This sauce adds a great subtle flavour to the dishes, which will satisfy the taste. I think it doesn’t make sense to buy hoisin from the store. Rather, make it at your home and store it in the pantry to enjoy happy hours.
