Hoisinful Asian Marinade Recipe

The best thing about Asian flavored marinades is that the soy sauce is salty so they work like both a marinade and brine, penetrating better than most marinades. This one is great for making Asian ribs, beef, chicken, or shrimp.

The dominant flavor in this recipe is hoisin sauce. Called Chinese BBQ sauce or Chinese ketchup, hoisin sauce bears no resemblance to either, other than Chinese cooks use it a lot. This most excellent condiment is made from soybeans, vinegar, rice, salt, flour, garlic, and chili peppers. Wonderful, hoisinful stuff. If you have trouble finding them in your grocery store, try Amazon.com.
