Barbecue sauce can be seasoned by adding vinegar, fruit, cola or coffee. Create an Asian-inspired barbecue sauce by sautéing 2 chopped garlic cloves and 2 tablespoons grated ginger in 2 tablespoons of peanut oil until fragrant. Stir in 1/2 cup dry sherry, 1/2 cup hoisin sauce and 1/2 cup ketchup followed by 1 1/2 teaspoons chili-garlic sauce, 2 teaspoons soy sauce and 2 teaspoons dark sesame oil. Stir well and bring to a boil. Remove from heat, and let cool before using on any protein. This barbecue sauce is perfect on ribs, chicken or pork chops.
