Sweet Hoisin Sauce

Randy Mayor; Melanie J. Clarke

Hoisin is a blend of soybeans, garlic, chile peppers, and spices; it serves as the base for this Chinese-inspired barbecue sauce. Five-spice powder, also used extensively in Chinese cooking, is a pungent mixture of ground cinnamon, cloves, fennel, star anise, and peppercorns.
