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, sometimes 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 – $2.87
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.
Kikkoman Soy Sauce – $5.29
- All purpose seasoning
- Certified Kosher
- Naturally brewed and aged for full flavor from water, wheat, soybeans and salt
- Delicate aroma and appealing reddish-brown color complement and intensify the natural flavor, aroma and color of foods without masking or overpowering
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.
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).
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
- Szechuan Sauce is perfect for your favorite chili recipe or hot and spicy shrimp stir-fry.

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.
