Doujiang or Doenjang (Chinese: ; pinyin: dòujiàng; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: tāu-chiùⁿ) is a paste made from preserved fermented yellow soybeans in Chinese and Korean cuisine. The sauce is also commonly used in other Indonesian cuisines traditions, such as Sundanese cuisine and Javanese cuisine.

The sauce is often used as condiment and flavouring for stir fried dishes such as tahu tauco (tofu in tauco sauce), kakap tahu tausi (red snapper with tofu in soybean sauce), or in soup such as swikee oh (frog legs in tauco soup) and pie oh (softshell turtle in tauco soup). Today the major production center of tauco in Indonesia is in Cianjur, West Java.
