Low Carb Hoisin Sauce

Many Asian style recipes require high carb sauces in their ingredients to get that authentic restaurant taste. We created our version of one of those – Low Carb Hoisin Sauce, it’s not identical but it’s as close as we can get while keeping it Keto.

By making the sauce at home with keto-friendly ingredients, we’ve reduced the carb count from 7g per tablespoon to just 2g (1g net carbs) per tablespoon. Not to mention, our version is free from sugar and contains only a small amount of Sugar-Free Maple Syrup for sweetness – which can be swapped out for the equivalent in liquid Stevia.

We’ve used this sauce in our Asian Style Shredded Beef, and it really shines through. It’s a great sauce to throw through a quick midweek stir-fry or marinate your favorite protein before grilling. You can even add it to our Cauliflower Fried Rice for extra deliciousness!

This recipe makes ½ cup of sauce, which is 8 servings. 1 serving is 1 tablespoon.

  • 4 tablespoons of Tamari Sauce

  • 3 teaspoons of Sesame Oil

    I am amazed at how much this tastes like Hoisin. I didn’t have the xanthum, so mine didn’t thicken up, but in the application I’m using it, that wasn’t a game changer. I also used Swerve brown sugar since I didn’t have the sugar free maple. Thank you for this!

  2. This is incredible! Thank you for this, as we have food restrictions right now in our home: no sugar, no wheat, no yeast, no dairy. I also don’t have Xantham Gum, so will try it without (I’m using it for Instant Pot Char Siu). Fingers crossed as I wasn’t sure if cornstarch would be ok as substitute.

  3. How crucial is the xanthan gum? I would think it would be for texture, and since I’m planning to use this hoisin in a recipe (as opposed to using it as a sauce on its own), I’m inclined to skip the xanthan gum. Thoughts?

    • Hi Carol,

      The Xanthan gum is essential for the sauce to have some thickness and be able to grip onto the surrounding ingredients. Leaving it out may add too much liquid – depending on the recipe that you are making. I hope that helps 🙂

  4. Maybe I’m just missing it but I don’t see anywhere how big one serving is. I’d love to know how many tablespoons one serving actually is so I can compare it to regular hoisin sauce.

    • Hi Tim,

      One serving is one tablespoon. We always write our serving size information in the post above the recipe 🙂
