I used this as a vehicle to try hoisin sauce, without realizing it would toss me into the ring with my old nemesis, sweet meat. Had I known beforehand that hoisin is a barbecue-like sauce I would have just skipped the whole thing — I’ve been slumming it on sweet street a little too often lately. Wouldn’t want to make it a habit. Anyway, I ate it … sweet meat and all. Just don’t tell the pork I was thinking about the cabbage the whole time.
