ISO Substitute for Kung Pao Sauce

I have a recipe for Edamame in Kung Pao Sauce. But I can't find prepared kung pao sauce. Is there something else I can substitute?
Thanks

Here are the ingredients for the sauce, if you want to make your own.

Kung Pao Sauce

* 4 tablespoons soy sauce
* 2 tablespoons dry sherry
* 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
* 2 tablespoons sugar
* 2 teaspoons sesame oil
* 3 tablespoons Hoisin sauce
* 3 tablespoons oyster sauce
* 1/2 cup dry roasted, unsalted peanuts


Preparation: Trim ends off green onions and cut light green and white part into 1" sections. Mix all other sauce ingredients in 2-quart saucepan. Heat sauce to simmer. Add green onions & peanuts about a minute before serving.

Are edamame fava beans? Soy beans? There's nothing like that out here in the sticks, but they sound interesting.

Thank you so much, Constance! Duh...I didn't think about making my own! Yes, edamame are green soy beans. I live in the sticks, too, but when I go to market 55 miles away, I find these in the frozen food section. Thanks again for your help. Guess I'll just make my own.

Edamame is fantastic with just some lemon juice and salt, too. Tastes very fresh and green that way. I

But you can sauce it with anything you make up and think tastes good.

I always grab a lot of them at the salad bar and think they taste very nice with a little Italian dressing.

Glad to help. Next time I up the road to the doctor, I will look in the big Kroger store there. They sound good.
