Mint Marinade

Spicy-sweet hoisin sauce, made from soybeans, spices, and chiles, punches up the flavor in this marinade. (We used it to marinate the lean lamb chop pictured on the next page.) Save the remaining sauce in the refrigerator to use as a basting sauce or at the table instead of ketchup with meat, poultry, or fish.


3/4 cup.
