1 Cup Hoisin sauce

2 Fresh plums, chopped

1/2 Tbsp. Momofuku Chili Crunch

1/4 Tsp. Kosher salt


1. Add every thing to a blender and blend until the plums are in very small piece and the sauce is still a little chunky. Taste. Add more salt and/or Momofuku if you want it spicer.

2. Store in a small jar or plastic container in the refrigerator until ready to use. This will keep for about a week refrigerated.

NOTE: This is a great way to enhance store bought hoisin sauce.  Hoisin is a Chinese BBQ sauce that is thick and on the sweet side.  The addition of fresh plums which are a little tart, the spicy Momofuku and some salt give you that great sweet, spicy and salty flavor we all love.  This is amazing on chicken, pork and steak.  I’ve also used it right on the bottom of tacos and pita bread with hot chicken or steak strips (kind of like peking duck).  So, so good.  If you like more heat, just add more of the Chili Crunch.
