I'm gonna marry this sauce.

Okay, fine, it doesn't look amazing there (in fact, I realize that it looks kinda gross, but that's just because I had to squeeze it out and there's not a lot left.) But this stuff is great; it's sweet and salty and literally goes with EVERYTHING. I can put it on any type of meat and it's instantly tasty. It provides all the flavor I need for any veggies.

The other day I choose to eat it with asparagus.

The asparagus was just boiled until edible and the sauce was squirted out. I ate this instead of chips. Yeah. That's healthy. I've also boiled some Chinese lettuce (not sure exactly what it is, sorry, I lack vegetable identification skills) and drizzled a combination of this sauce and water on it. Goodness, that was yummy too.

You can find it in your local Asian grocery story and use it to make any dish--especially if you're not feeling like anything fancy.

  13. Amen, sister. That was the only sauce in my room during the first two years of college. It helped me eat so many cafeteria veggies and meats.

  14. Hoisin! I know this sauce. But my house uses more oyster sauce than this. It’s about 1am here and I’m so hungry now that even asparagus with hoisin looks so delicious.

  15. I agree , this sauce goes with everything !=)haha
