Hoisin sauce , also called Peking sauce, is a thick, reddish-brown sauce that is sweet and spicy, and widely used in Chinese cooking. It's a mixture of soybeans, garlic, chilepeppers and various spices. It can be found in Asian markets and many large supermarkets. Look in the Asian or ethnic section.
