Homemade Hoisin Sauce Recipe for Mu Shoo Pork


Hoisin Sauce is the traditional sauce to go with mu shoo pork. It's also tasty with many other dishes. Here is a recipe to make your own low carb version without sugar.

Ingredients:
4 Tbsp soy sauce
2 Tbsp natural peanut butter
1 Tbsp sugar-free honey
2 tsp rice vinegar
2 tsp sesame seed oil
1 tsp hot sesame oil
1/4 tsp minced garlic
1/8 tsp white pepper
1/8 tsp black pepper

Mix all ingredients together in a microwave-safe mixing bowl. Once they're thoroughly mixed, microwave the mixture for 25 seconds to help it combine together. Give it a final stir when it comes out.

The sugar-free honey should have no effective carbs at all. It might have sugar alcohols - we've seen them as high as 17g for a tablespoon of honey. For most people this won't impact them. Some people to react to sugar alcohols. So this would be something to test out to see how your body reacts.

Our natural honey has 6g of carbs minus 2g of fiber meaning 4g of net carbs for 2 tablespoons.

So that means in total our version of hoisin sauce has just the 4g of carbs across the entire container, which makes quite a number of servings for our mu shoo pork. Depending on what kind of sugar-free honey you use and peanut butter, your numbers could vary a bit. Also of course it depends if you ingest the entire container of sauce yourself all at once :).

Interestingly, while I think of this sauce as going with the moo shu pork, the word hoisin is actually a version of the Chinese word for seafood. I would think this would be too heavy for most seafood dishes.

I'd love to hear your other ideas for using this hoisin sauce. It's quite a tasty treat! Don't forget that you can order mu shoo and not have the pancakes with it. Or have low carb wraps. There are all sorts of ways to mix up your menu so that it's healthier and fresher. Making your own sauces is definitely a way to start down that path!
