Are These the 10 Best Asian Sauces?

Spicy, sweet, sour, and so much more, Asian sauces are so much more flavorable than many of those you will find normally used in Western cooking. But be careful, sometimesUnknown all it takes is a little of these sauces to go a long way! See below for some of the best available Asian sauces: 

Lee Kum Kee Hoisin Sauce, 20 oz – $2.8781uTQEEW1VL._SL1500_

A savory-sweet sauce made from select spices and ground soybeans. Use it for roasts and stir-fries, or as a condiment. Hoisin is not a hot sauce even with the addition of chilis. With that said, Hoisin is a very flavorful sauce – think of it as a Chinese BBQ sauce. It is a great addition to many things – including Western cooking. Try adding some to a regular pot roast, for example, and it will really kick up the flavor a couple of notches.

  • All purpose seasoning

Huy Fong Chili Garlic Sauce – $6.50 81hqLj1JcfL._SY679_

Chili Garlic is a tempting blend of coarsely ground chilies and garlic. The delicious flavor of the sauce complements everything from a cracker to poultry to soups. It has a full-bodied flavor that will make your mouth water.

An essential in Chinese cooking. Made from the finest oyster extract, this premium all purpose seasoning sauce enhances the flavor and appearence of any dish.

Por Kwan Pad Thai Sauce – Sour and Spicy Sauce – $12.79Unknown

This sauce allows for quick and easy preparation of a delicious Pad Thai. If you don’t have the time or energy to make Pad Thai from scratch, just soak some Chantaboon rice stick noodles in warm (hot to the touch) water for about an hour or so depending on your preference. While the noodles are soaking heat some vegetable oil in a wok, add shallots and cook until aromatic, add meat of your choice (shrimp, chicken, etc) and cook. Add rice noodles, add 2-3 tablespoons of water, and add 1/2 cup pad Thai sauce. Stir together and push to one side of wok. Crack an egg and scramble it in the wok, then mix the cooked egg with the other ingredients. Add other ingredients as you prefer (tofu, chives, crushed peanuts, etc).

San-J Szechuan Sauce – $28.48 Unknown

Turn up the heat on any meal with San-J Szechuan Sauce. Add 1 tsp. for a little zing; add 1 Tbsp. to set your taste buds on fire

  • For a tasty party snack, coat buffalo wings with Szechuan sauce and bake or grill.

Mommy Sauce Bulgogi Sauce – $9.95 51n3wGMGWML._SX522_

This sauce can be used to marinate any meat, especially bulgogi. Use as a quick marinade for thinly sliced beef, let it sit for a few hours, then cook on a hot pan. A little goes a long way – for one pound of thinly sliced beef, I use about 4-5 tablespoons of sauce. You can use this sauce for chicken, duckboki, or to add a slightly sweet, soy sauce.

  • use to marinate any meat, especially bulgogi.
  • use as a quick marinade for thinly sliced beef
  • as a sauce for chicken, duckboki, or to add a slightly sweet, soy sauce taste

Koon Chun Ground Bean Sauce – $7.99 51yzCd6AwrL

Great for stir fry, just add 1 tbsp and 1/2 cup of water with a tbsp of tapioca powder for a tasty sauce.  Also works well with Indian food. Note: hosin sauce is somewhat sweet and bean sauce is not. They are used very differently and distinctly in recipes, though, so don’t substitute one for the other.
