Ginger, hoisin, chili-garlic sauce and dark sesame oil put an Asian-inspired spin on this easy, homemade BBQ sauce.



  1. Heat the oil in a small saucepan over high heat. Add the garlic and ginger and cook over high heat until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Whisk in the sherry, hoisin sauce, ketchup, chile-garlic sauce, soy sauce, and sesame oil and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and let cool.
