Chinese "Peking sauce", what exactly is it?

MikeG | Feb 20, 2009 12:13 PM

Is it just another name for hoisin sauce, as a number of websites claim, or is it a similar but strictly speaking different ingredient? I've never seen it on a jar in a store, only in the name(s) of restaurant dishes -- if it's not hoisin, does it go by another name when it's not printed on a restaurant menu?
