Chinese Barbecue Sauce

Barbecue sauce is a vague term as there are as many different barbecue sauces, as there burger types. When mentioning the term barbecue sauce, most people often think of a sticky red substance with tomatoes as the main ingredient. In a traditional chinese barbecue sauce the tomatoes are replaced with other ingredients such a soy sauce and/or hoisin sauce.

Our favorite way to use this barbecue sauce is when we make chinese barbecue pork burritos (recipe follows soon) which is an easy and delicious sunday dinner. It can also be used for other meat types such as beef or duck.

 

Ingredients

1 cup soy sauce

1/4 cup sweet soy sauce

1/2 Beer (choose your favorite)

1/2 cup hoisin sauce

1/2 cup syrup

1 tbsp. black pepper sauce

2 tbsp. chili flakes in soy-bean sauce

1 tbsp. garlic powder

1 tbsp. ginger powder

1 tbsp. chinese five spice

1 tbsp. onion powder

Heat up a sauce pan and add soy sauce. Let it boil for a few minutes before adding beer, syrup, sweet soy sauce, black pepper sauce and hoisin sauce. Stir to combine before adding all the dry ingredients while whisking.

When combined let simmer a medium heat for 5-10 minutes or until the texture is smooth and all the dry ingredients has dissolved.

If you’re not using it immediately, transfer to a clean and airtight jar. If you plan to keep the sauce for more than a few days, it is a good idea to rinse the jar in boiling water or alcohol just before adding the sauce. Keep refrigerated at all times.
