I hunted high and low on the Internet for a Hoisin sauce recipe (homemade) that did not include soy. I found several that didn't include sweet potato, but none without soy. Anyone?

I currntly have Lee Kum Kee.
My favorite hoisin is Koon Chun. Look for the blue and yellow can. For some reason the sauce in the 5# can tastes better to me than the sauce in the jar.

I like making a sauce for pork using pureed peaches cooked with a little hoisin sauce and sriracha, and spiced with ginger, corriander, mace, tumeric, black pepper, and allspice. I cut the pork into thicker cubes so the sauce doesn't overwhelm it and serve it over brown rice. I usually searve a really simple vegetable stirfry with water chestnuts, snap peas, bean sprouts and sometimes carrots seasoned with a little garlic, ginger and a tiny bit of soy sauce along side the pork. I don't have an exact recipe, it's something I just kind of throw together.

That sounds good, PAG (although I had to look up sriracha!) and found a homemade version of it:

Homemade Sriracha Hot Sauce Recipe | Leite's Culinaria

Which I might give a try when the jalapenos are in abundance in the garden.

I always buy Koon Chun Sauce Factory brand, in a nice retro-looking yellow and violet label.

Okay, I'll join in the bump of this old thread...
Isn't Hoisin basically a Chinese BBQ sauce?
I buy Lee Kum Kee brand and simply
brush it on grilled chicken, as I would with any
other bottled BBQ sauce... served with

and steamed white rice,
what folks `round here call sticky rice
and Bob's-your-Uncle
(now I'm hungry )
