This recipe ROCKS!!!!!! The only adjustment I made was what other reviewers suggested which was to cut the vinegar to 1/3 cup. We had an art show at our Church last Saturday night and I made gyoza along with this recipe for dipping sauce and people RAVED about it and requested the recipe... Thank you Rebecca!!! Read More

I didn't love it. You definitely need to cut the vinegar down to 1/3 cup, but there is something else missing. Maybe a drop of honey or pinch of sugar? It was just a little too tart for our pot stickers and scallion pancakes. Will definitely try again, but with modifications. Read More

This was so good. Better than the resturaunt. I halved the recipe. I used regular soy sauce but 4 cloves of garlic and 1 teaspoon of ground ginger from the jar. In leiu of the sesame oil and crused red peppers I used chili paste. It was a great dipping sauce for the pork and shrimp Gyoza fried won tons and crab rangoon. Read More

This recipe is perfect! I love it as-is, but my boyfriend prefers less spiciness when we use it on our veggie gyoza. I make the full amount of the recipe in a small bowl, let the flavors meld overnight, then strain it into an empty soy sauce bottle. We pour it directly onto our gyoza (preventing waste), and the bottle goes into the freezer to keep until we need it again. I strain out the solids so (1) it doesn't continue getting spicier and (2) the freezer doesn't affect anything oddly. Read More

I'm only giving 4 stars because I added 1 T. of brown sugar decreased the vinegar to 1/3 cup and used 1 tsp sambal chili paste instead of flakes. I heated it in the microwave a little just to dissolve the sugar...really good stuff! Thought about adding more paste but kids were eating this so.... Read More
