Indonesian Sweet Soy Sauce “Kecap Manis”

DSC00118DSC00108

“Kecap Manis” translated from Indonesian to English literally means sweet sauce. It can be described as a hybrid between soy sauce and molasses. Ingredients include palm sugar, black soy bean, salt, water and spices. It does not contain wheat and is thus gluten free.┬áThis sauce is a BBQ hero but due to its high sugar content needs to be used sparingly to prevent burns over the grill. Kecap manis can be found in most Chinese and Southeast Asian grocery stores such as Ranch 99 Market, ShunFat SuperStore, Hong Kong Supermarket in Los Angeles. Bango and Wayang Brands are my favorites. I do not care much for the more widely seen ABC brand as it has a bitter aftertaste.
