I have been playing with a sauce for some time to try to duplicate a sauce/marinade called Yoshida. Seems our local Sam's club has stopped carrying this sauce. This might even surpass the store bought! It makes around 3 1/2-4 cups and keeps well in the refrigerator for as long as soy sauce keeps. Great on chicken,pork,beef,tofu vegetables.... it is an all- purpose marinade that is thick and very flavorful. Great for the grill or stir fry. The whole family agrees that it is awesome. :)
1Combine all ingredients except for the hoisin sauce in a medium sauce pan.
2Bring to a good boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring constantly.
3After simmering for 15 minutes, take off heat and add hoisin sauce. Stir to blend well.
4Let cool to room temp. and refrigerate until ready to use as a marinade/sauce. This will keep for a very long time in the fridge.
5This marinade is awesome on chicken. Just pour some over whatever chicken you are cooking and marinade for at least 1 hour, or up to over night. Grill, stir fry, bake for a wonderful flavorful entree!
6Do not stop with chicken! This works for any meat and tofu as well... even vegetables are awesome with this sauce. Just add to your stir fry and mix.
