Hoisin BBQ Sauce

| March 20, 2017 (Last Updated: August 17, 2019)

An exotic sweet and spicy taste…

You can use hoisin sauce alone as a glaze for grilled chicken and pork – but if you want something a little more BBQ traditional, try your hand at a hoisin BBQ sauce. It pairs the sweetness and spiciness of hoisin with the tang of ketchup. And then there’s a hint of exotic flavor with a touch of soy sauce and rice wine vinegar. It’s a culmination of flavor that actually pairs very well with the hint of smokiness you get from grilling.

We like it with a little Sriracha sauce for a little extra heat, but that’s totally optional. This barbecue sauce is perfect for grilled pork, and it also works really well with grilled chicken. So if you’re ready for a BBQ sauce that’s a little outside-the-box, give this one a shot!

Prep Time 10 mins

Ingredients
  

  • 6 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 6 tablespoons ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Sriracha sauce optional

Instructions
 

  • Add all ingredients to a mixing bowl and stir until fully combined.

Notes

The Sriracha is optional - more to provide an additional bump up in heat than to add to the overall flavor. Sriracha is the best hot sauce for this in this recipe (don't use a hot sauce with a strong vinegar base). Another option is to use a quarter or half teaspoon of cayenne pepper powder. Be sure to stir the sauce well to fully mix in the cayenne if you go that route.
