What's A Good Substitute For Soy Sauce?

Recommended Posts

I miss some of my Asian/Chinese recipes and would like to start making them again but I need asubstitute for soy sauce. I don't actually like the stuff that much, but most recipes call for it with other ingredients.

Also, if anyone knows of gluten-free, soy free fish and oyster sauce or subs for these I will die of happiness!

And some other places suggest this:

8 oz molasses

3 oz balsamic vinegar

sweeten to taste (Stevia, sugar, etc)

Does Thai fish sauce contain soy? It does taste similar, you just need to use less because the flavor is quite strong.

It mixes nicely with lime, sugar, rice wine, rice wine vinegar, curry powder or 5-spice powder, honey, etc.

HI KIDO.

PATTI POSTED THIS RECENTLY BUT I HAVEN'T TRIED IT YET.

PRINTING IT NOW AS JIM'S THE MARINATOR IN OUR HOME... :lol:

SOY SAUCE SUB

2 cups beef broth

2 tsp cider vinegar

1 tsp molassas

1/8 tsp ground ginger

dash of pepper/onoin powder/garlic powder

Combine all in saucepan. Boil until reduced to 1/2 cup. Store in fridge.

I can't take credit for the recipe--I found it here. I *think* possibly it was from Liz (lonewolf)?

I use Braggs Liquid Aminos which works very well as a substitute for conventional soy sauces. You can read about it at the Braggs website http://www.bragg.com/products/liquidaminos.html .

Is it the wheat in the soy sauce or the soy? If you can have the soy then San-J makes a wheat free Tamari sauce that tastes great. I use Thai fish sauce quite a lot too. I think it tastes totally different than soy sauce though. But it might give the umami flavor you're looking for.

I just went to a local oriental market and stocked up on Curry paste, coconut milk, exotic spices and fish sauce! Whee! Talk about feeling out of place...

I use Umboshi vinegar - it's really salty - and then add toasted sesame oil, ginger and garlic for flavor and leave soy out of all my stir-fries and Asian dishes. I've been off soy for 11 years and don't miss it any more.
