Yummo as Rachel Ray would say. Hmmm wondering if I could use cayenne or red chili flakes, as I'm out of hot sauce. Might be worth a try, not to have to go to the store.
Thank you so much for sharing.

Low Carb Hoisin Sauce

Just Googled "low carb hoisin sauce" today and it took me to this interesting site. I used it to make Mongolian Beef and it was great. Also discovered that julienned bamboo shoots have NEGATIVE carbs. Really - the nutrition label reads 0 carbs and 2 gr. fiber in a half cup. I'll have to check my Atkins book to confirm this!

That's not possible and I rarely trust foreign can labels to be accurate. Here's what the USDA site says:

9 1/4 ounce can bamboo shoots, drained solids
8.44 carbs
3.7g fiber

Even when accurate, the foreign food's carb count usually already has the fiber deducted. So in the case that Linda had listed, they would say 4 or 5 carbs depending on how they would choose to count the 4.74 carbs. And apparently that is for the whole can. So a serving (depending on what size they called a serving) might be listed as 0 carbs.

I just found the recipe for the LC Hoisin Sauce last night and made it just a little while ago.I'm marinating some boneless pork chops. Once I cook them, I'm goin!g to sliver them to add to LC Egg Foo Yung. It's amazing the delicious food you can create that is low carb and healthy. Thank you to all of you who develop, tweak and share your recipes

Could almond butter be used instead of the peanut butter? Or would that change the taste of the sauce? My almond butter only has 2 net carbs per 2 tb serving.

I wish I knew the answer for you, but this is my first foray into the LC Hoisin sauce. And the only time I ever ate/made almond butter was last year and it was definitely not LC. It was addicting and so delicious but it sent my blood sugar to new heights lol
Can you tell me how the LC almond butter compares to PB? I'm very curious now.

Made a double batch of this to go in my asian lettuce wraps. I used two pounds of ground sirloin and a bag and a half of broccoli slaw from Trader Joe's as the base, and I still needed to whip up another quarter cup or so to add to the pan in addition to the double batch. Dumped on a couple of handfulls of peanuts toward the end. So good on butter lettuce leaves. I had no low carb peanut butter, so I substituted powdered peanut butter (PB2). I also added garlic powder, ginger and chinese 5 spice to the mix. The non-LCers in my family loved it with Lo Mein noodles. Next time I will add a few chopped water chestnuts, and maybe use a bigger pan and put in two bags of broccoli slaw. The veggies really reduce in the cooking.

I have used the Steel's hoisin from Netrition, and it is good in a pinch, but I love this recipe.

I have some grass-fed beef backribs thawing I'd like to try Emeril Legasse's Asian Beer Braised Shortrib recipe on and use some of this sauce in the recipe. The LC hoisin sauce I made last year from some recipe I found somewhere on the net wasn't too good. Eager to try this! I'm potato hacking currently, so only hubby will be enjoying this dish tonight. But I'll give it a taste.
