Hoisin-Peanut Sauce

Hoisin-Peanut SauceThis recipe is one of the reasons we're not entirely sugar- and grain-free around here. Prepared hoisin sauce is made with both refined sugar and rice. :( Maybe someday soon I'll make some up myself without them, but in the meanwhile, we buy the stuff in the jar. This sauce goes well with chicken, pork, beef, and vegetables.

¼ c hoisin sauce
1 c peanut butter
1 T freshly grated ginger
5 cloves garlic, minced
2 T minced onion
1 t honey
¼ t salt
pinch cayenne pepper
3 T oil
2 T soy sauce
Juice of 2 limes (6 T)
½ c chicken broth

Beat together all ingredients until thoroughly combined.
