Earthy Delights Recipe
Black Garlic Barbecue Sauce
Break out of your grilling routine and try something a little different from the usual tomato-y barbecue sauce! This sweet-sour-savory sauce, inspired by Asian sauces and marinades, is wonderful on everything from seafood and poultry to beef and pork.
Use a little as a marinade and don't forget to brush the sauce on as it grills. Don't worry if it chars a little - it's even more delicious that way!
1/2 cup shao xing rice wine or dry sherry
1/4 cup hoisin sauce
3 Tbsp honey
2/3 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup sugar
6 - 8 cloves black garlic, finely minced
2 tsp black bean paste
1/2 tsp 5 Spice Powder
Combine all ingredients and simmer in a large saucepan over medium heat for 10 minutes or until it bubbles and begins to thicken slightly. Cool, put into a clean jar and store in the refrigerator.
