Asian BBQ Sauce
I always like to have a jar of some kind of sauce knocking around in the fridge for emergency munchies when I get home at Ridiculous O’ Clock from the restaurant. This is one I tried out recently and I am absolutely digging at the moment. The Hoisin and Soy Sauce add the perfect balance of sweet and tangy and sour that is exactly what you want smothered over a bacon sandwich at 1am.
It’s also pretty quick to throw together so you have no excuse not to take your late night culinary game up a notch.
400g Tomato Ketchup
3 Tbsp Brown Sugar
1 Tsp Dried Chilli Powder
1” Piece of Ginger
2 Cloves of Garlic
2 Tbsp Hoisin Sauce
1 Tbsp Soy Sauce
-In a saucepan over a medium heat, add the ketchup and sugar in together.
-While they simmer away for about five minutes, grate the ginger and finely crush the garlic.
-Add them into the pot along with the chilli powder.
-Simmer this for about 5 to 10 minutes to cook the garlic and ginger.
-Next add in the Hoisin and the Soy Sauce.
-Simmer for another few minutes and then you are good to jar it up.
This will keep in the fridge for a good few weeks if kept in a sealed jar. I sincerely doubt it will last that long though.
