Default Hoisin Sauce?

I've seen y'all mention this stuff a few times here, so this morning
when I was getting more Teryaki and Soy sauce at the store, I picked up
a small bottle of Hoison sauce since I saw it there.

I'll taste it by itself to see what I think it'd go with, but I'm open
to suggestions as to friendly flavor combos and usage suggestions. :-)

Thanks!!!!!!

A few years ago I came across a recipe in a pasta calendar for an oriental stir fry
with angel hair pasta or Spaghetinni. It's a basic stir fry starting with garlic
and ginger, then chopped peppers, celery, onion, broccoli and mushrooms. The
sauce is made with the usual broth and then a corn starch slurry, and with soy
sauce and one or two Tbslp. of Hoison sauce.

I absolutely *love* Hoisin sauce. I use it all the time in stir-fry,
yakisoba, etc. You can make a delicious marinade with just equal parts
Hoisin, Oyster (flavored) Sauce, and Soy Sauce. I use this to marinade beef,
chicken and pork for stir-frying.

Another favorite of mine is Hoisin Chicken, which is really easy but really
good. Combine 1 tbsp soy sauce with 1/2 tsp each salt and Chinese 5 spice
powder. Use this as a rub on a roasting chicken. Cover and refrigerate at
least 2 hours, or up to overnight. For the glaze, combine Hoisin sauce and
honey until well combined and then add soy sauce. Add salt & pepper, minced
garlic and scallions, and a dash of 5 spice powder. (I usually use about 1/4
cup of each Hoisin, soy sauce, and honey). Heat oven to 375 as you bring the
chicken to room temp. Roast for 45 min, then brush with the glaze and roast
10 more minutes. Reglaze and put back until chicken is done, about 10
minutes usually. Do not cover during roasting, or the skin will be rubbery
instead of crisp and flavorful.
You can also do this with cut up chicken in the oven or on a grill.

Enjoy!

In addition to all the Chinese dishes, it works well as an additional

This thread already has some VERY good recommendations, with which I
heartily agree. Hoisin sauce is one of the world's greatest condiments. As
Ming Tsai invariably points out, it should be cooked briefly before using;
just put a couple teaspoons of oil in a pan, heat it to medium-high, then
dump in the hoisin sauce and let it sizzle for ten seconds or so. It adds
great flavor to just about anything, even fried tofu. It's a classic
ingredient in stir-fries and Chinese braises.

It's said that the Peking Duck pizza at California Pizza Kitchen was
invented as a way to get more hoisin sauce into people. In that pizza,
hoisin sauce is combined with ginger and cilantro, brushed on the pizza
crust, and topped with duck breast, soy-glazed shiitake mushrooms, and
mozzarella cheese before being baked, then sprinkled with slivered green
onions and fried wontons.

I use it in marinades for the barbecue.

Here's one marinade recipe, for pork strips (sort of like spare ribs
but single slices, almost like belly pork) Really, any pork will work.

1 clove garlic
2 tbsp hoisin sauce
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp sherry
2 tbsp water.

Place all ingredients in a plastic bag. Add meat and marinate for
several hours.

Cook on barbecue or...
line a shallow pan with tinfoil. Spread spareribs and marinade in pan.
Cover with more tinfoil and bake for 350F for one hour.

(The tinfoil makes the cleanup a lot easier)

It looks like it's mainly a Miso base, so should go well as a broth
subtitute.

Cool.
Hopefully it'll give me "that" flavor that my stir fry's are missing
compared to restaraunt preparations.

Oh my god that sounds good!!!
I do a lot of chicken wing parts in the electric grill, and I love to
marinate them overnight.

This sound perfect for that, and I have a bag of "buffalo wings" in the
freezer right now. ;-d

I use soy sauce a lot now to "enrich" soups.
So, I'll have to try this the same way.

very good.

I'll have to try it again now, thanks!

I'll pass on the cilantro (thanks anyway) but I use a LOT of fresh
ginger combined with garlic already. It's a match made in heaven.....

I have a small wicker basket in the Hobart 'frige where I store ginger
and shallots.

Several have answered, but I'll also post back when I have experimented
a bit.

First thing is to use some in a chicken marinade for grilling. :-)

Yes, I made a beef stew with 1/4 cup of Hoisin sauce, very very tasty.

That is my advice, too. I use oyster sauce in nearly every SE asian dish
I cook. Then again, I think seafood, even a hint of it, is good in
nearly everything

Hoisin is made mostly from sweet potatoes and although it looks similar
to miso (but doesn't contain miso) it wouldn't be used as a soup base.

The recipe states dry sherry but I often find that hard to buy, and
have often used medium sherry.

Actually, the label ingredients say Miso as one of the first listed
ingredients....... ;-)

I put some on some eggroll dumplings and noted it has a sweetish flavor.
I'll probably use it lightly in stir fry's, but mostly as a meat
marinade. I'm cleaning my electric grill right now (I did not clean it
last time I used it so now it has to soak) and have some buffalo wings
thawing in the microwave. And no, I'm not nuking them. I use the
microwave for room temp. thawing to keep them away from curious kitties.
<G>

I'll marinate them later once they are thawed enough, then electro-grill
them.

It's perfect for wings, but make sure you have lots of napkins! lol
I forgot to mention, my sister in law makes a soup where she flavors chicken
stock with sesame oil and Hoisin, then adds lots of veggies (celery, leeks,
bok choy, etc) and rice noodles. It's quite tasty!

I sometimes sprinkle the marinated wings with toasted sesame seeds once
they are on the grill. :-) Adds a nice texture and flavor.

Also, since the non-stick grill surface is not so non-stick anymore, I
add oil to the marinade and it helps. Will have to add some sesame oil
to the grapeseed oil for sure.

I'll be steaming some fresh veggies to go with them. I have broccolli,
cauliflower and carrots that need to be used.

Om...if your grill is still under warranty, you can call their 800
number and request new grates for it. Mine had a two year warranty and
when the knob broke, I called them (the warranty just had two months
left) and asked them to just send a new one, and since it seemed to be
the most vulnerable part, would they send two? They did. They (I
think) would prefer to send out a new part than to ship the whole thing
in for repair. It's worth the call anyway.....Sharon

I like hoisin sauce, but in my experience, oyster sauce, garlic, and
ginger make up *that* flavor.

Sesame oil is imperative to making good fried rice.

Mahogany Chicken Wings

Recipe By amsel in dis Dress
Serving Size : 0 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : appetizers poultry


Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1/2 cup hoisin sauce
1/4 cup plum sauce
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup saki (rice wine)
1/4 cup cider vinegar
3 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon garlic -- finely minced
1 bunch green onions -- finely minced
5 pounds chicken wings

Combine all ingredients except chicken. Bring to a boil, lower heat,
and cook for an additional 5-10 minutes. Cool.

Cut wings at joints, forming "drummies," "sticks," and "tips". Discard
tips, or save for making soup stock.

Place wings in a container for marinating (Zip-Loc bags work great for
this), then cover with sauce. Refrigerate at least overnight, up to
two days. Turn occasionally.

Line two large jelly roll pans with aluminum foil. Coat with
vegetable oil or shortening to minimize sticking. Preheat oven to
375F.

Place individual chicken pieces on pans and bake, uncovered, for 20
minutes. Remove liquified chicken fat and juices from pan. Turn
chicken pieces and baste with marinating sauce.

Bake another 20 minutes, turn chicken and baste. Repeat twice more,
watching carefully during the last baking cycle, so the sauce doesn't
burn.

Cuisine:
"Asian"
Yield:
"5 dozen"
Serving Ideas : Serve hot or cold.

Been cooking with Hoisin sauce for years, but never heard some of the
things mentioned here. Can't wait to try some of these recipes.
I use it in twice cooked pork, and I make a Chinese Meatloaf, mentioned
in an earlier thread, with Hoisin Sauce on top. Delicious!

It's more like I escaped. The place was owned and operated by a guy
nicknamed Horny Harry. You do the math.

Yeah, Oyster sauce is next on my "things to buy"...... ;-)
Wertz mentioned it too.

I already use Garlic and Ginger.

Cheers and thanks!

IMO... sesame oil should not be added to fried rice.

Practice safe eating. Always use condiments.

Nothing wrong with a drop or two. More than that ruins the flavour.

I second that. It doesn't belong in fried rice.
