Kosher-style replacement for oyster sauce?
Not sure if this should go in Home cooking, but here goes: I'd like to make a recipe for Garlic Beef with Broccoli (from Nina Simonds A Spoonful of Ginger). It calls for 6 Tablespoons of Oyster Sauce. Is there anything I can use or make instead to approximate texture or flavor?
Doesn't have to be true kosher--kosher-style in fine.
Fish sauce (nam plah, or nuac mam) is a very different thing from the Chinese oyster sauce. It's Southeast Asian, and made with different ingredients. I have kosher fish sauce, but I've yet to see a kosher oyster sauce, either in New York groceries or online, probably because oyster sauce contains actual oyster.
