It took a bit of research to create this Asian gluten free barbecue sauce. Traditionally, an Asian barbecue sauce recipe will call for hoisin sauce, which is made up partly of soy beans and soy sauce, which usually is not gluten free, and certainly not soy free. Wanting one that is soy free is what brought me to create a portion of this recipe. The main reason is that I am developing a gluten free egg rolls recipe, and needed to get all my ducks in a row. I planned on using barbecued pork as one of the ingredients but wanted more of an authentic Asian gluten free barbecue sauce. Due to my allergies, it is taking a couple of gluten free recipes just to get started on the egg rolls, but if you’re not a soy-free dieter you may use store-bought items to make it easier. And I discovered that tomato or ketchup is not a traditional ingredient though you may find it used in some recipes. Stay tuned in for more on the egg rolls soon, if all turns out well. But definitely watch for my Chinese barbecue pork recipe. For now, I hope you enjoy this Chinese soy free gluten free barbecue sauce. Along with a little gluten free chicken broth, it’s going to make some awesome barbecued pork. It’s time to get those crockpots out!
Note: Some bottled sauces and broths may contain gluten, soy or yeast. Please read labels well if you are yeast-free.
