You can use hoisin sauce alone as a glaze for grilled chicken and pork – but if you want something a little more like traditional BBQ, try your hand at a DIY hoisin BBQ sauce. It pairs the sweetness and spiciness of hoisin with the tang of ketchup. There’s also a hint of the exotic with a touch of soy sauce and rice wine vinegar. It’s a flavor combo 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 it a shot.
