You’ll never have store-bought Hoisin Sauce again.
I hesitated making this sauce at home. The store-bought versions are so delicious and convenient. Would it be worth it to make it from scratch? The answer: Absolutely. This recipe takes just minutes to put together and if you cook Asian food with any regularity, you’ll probably have all the ingredients on hand. This homemade hoisin sauce recipe is adapted from the one on the BBC Good Food website.

1 Tbl dark brown sugar
2 tsp rice wine vinegar
