Identify Sauces by Their Ingredients

Let's Get Saucy!

I don't know about you guys, but I personally think that the sauce can make or break a meal. If it's too heavy-handed it can be a disaster, if it's off-tasting it can also be a shame. However when it's just right, it can really bring the dish to the next level.

Well, turns out that March is National Sauce Month, and to celebrate I thought I'd quiz you on sauces. I'll give you the ingredients, you tell me the sauce. Ready?

5/6 and I agree with wackdoodle & Brandi13 - no kick in hoisin, which I thought had plums in it????

I got 5/6 because I got hoisin incorrect, but as some others have mentioned I didn't even know there were chilies in hoisin. FYI, if you've never tried or made a chimichurri sauce definitely do so, one of my favorites and it is very easy to make... goes awesome with all kinds of meats.

5/6 I choose Sriracha instead of Hoisin because all the hoisins I've tasted have been bland, no chile punch what-so-ever. All the other sauces are things I make because I learned them as a kid watching Julia Child on PBS. Thanks Julia, RIP.

at least i got 2/3 of them right - i'm not 100% familiar with all my suaces but i know a little something.

6/6- oddly enough, I'm not really a sauce person - I've never made any of those!
