Chinese Barbeque Sauce

This Chinese barbecue sauce is easy to make and is great on top of your favorite grilled vegetables or meats.

Ingredients

  • ½ cup hoisin sauce  
  • ½ cup ketchup  
  • ½ cup diet ginger ale  
  • 2 tablespoon rice vinegar, seasoned  
  • ½ teaspoon five-spice powder  
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder  

Directions

Combine all the ingredients in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir occasionally until simmering.


Reduce the heat to low and simmer 5 minutes, or longer for desired thickness. Cool 10 minutes before using (or cool and store in a plastic or glass container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks).

Chinese Shopping Tip

Staples of Asian cuisine such as ginger, daikon, rice vinegar, and spicy chile sauces like Sriracha add bright, fresh flavors without lots of fuss.

Chinese Cooking Tip

Sriracha has good heat but also has flavor - its mild sweetness comes from sun-ripened chile peppers as well as sugar and garlic.
