Hi.

Welcome to my place.

I write about about being a 40-something mum of five wonderfully exasperating children, attachment parenting, my adventures in the kitchen, and whatever else comes to mind.

Recipe: Taste of the East BBQ Sauce

I tried this out a couple night ago and everyone really enjoyed it. It's a great baking sauce or marinade, lending some Asian flavours to a more traditional BBQ-style sauce. Use it to spice up some chicken or pork, or as a sauce over cooked veggies with a sprinkle of sesame seeds! Ingredients:

1/2 Cup hoisin sauce 1/2 Cup ketchup 2 Tbsp tamari 2 Tbsp mirin 4 tsp curry powder 4 tsp roasted sesame oil 1.5 tsp Vietnamese chili garlic sauce (I like Rooster Brand)

If you like a spicier sauce, add more chili garlic sauce to the mix! Whisk together until smooth. Makes approximately 1 Cup of sauce.
