  1. Karen,
    I'm trying this today! Thanks for posting!

    BTW--I have bought Hoisin sauce at Smith's several times.

  2. I love hoisin sauce and these sound so good!!

  3. I truly cannot get enough of hoisin sauce. These sound so good!

  4. Dara, these were inspired by your hoisin chicken! Thanks!

  5. Made these tonight and they were SO YUMMY!! I'm usually not a pork fan, but these had such a unique flavor as I've never cooked with Hoisin sauce. Walmart didn't have it, but oddly, my local grocery store I usually shop at (that I didn't think would have it) did! I will definitely be making them again, though I might--MIGHT--make a little more of the sauce, but they were pretty perfect as it was!

  6. MaryAnn,
    so so so happy you enjoyed them. I love these types of comments :)

  7. I adore hoisin sauce. It is so much better than bbq sauce. I can just imagine how tasty these are.

  8. Hello !! I love your dish it's good for breakfast,,yum yum :) Thank you :) personal chef in austin tx

  9. Don't eat pork, would assume this might work equally as well w/a larger turkey or chicken breast...? THANKS!!

    1. Yes, you could definitely season shredded beef or chicken with the hoisin sauce listed above and it would be super yummy.
