This stuff is sooo good! I made this the other night to go with steamed dumplings we ordered and unfortunately we didn't have enough sauce. For some reason one small cup for me just doesn't cut it. I used low sodium soy sauce and subbed sesame oil for the chili oil - I also added some finely chopped green onions. If you want to make it a bit sweeter add just the tiniest bit of brown sugar. You can change it up with ginger as well. Just play with it to suit your tastes. Read More

Just 3 star as written for me. It had too much of a vinegar taste for my palet. I added more soy and grated a pinch of Ginger. Read More

This was great. Over 20 years ago a Japanese friend of mine showed me how to make this and I had forgotten. I did not have chili oil so I used sesame oil. It turned out wonderful. My family loved it. Now I will have to try it with chili oil. Read More

This is great and easy! I lightly drizzle seasame oil on potstickers or dumplings with this and it is a perfect little topper to a great dish! I also add finely chopped chives or green onions to it. Thanks! Read More

Wow - this sauce is excellent. At first I thought it was a little too hot but it actually really goes well with potstickers. I added about 1/2 tbsp of minced fresh ginger to top it off. Really delicious. Read More

Oh my...this potsticker dip is amazing! I made it to go with regular frozen potstickers and it made them taste like restaurant quality! I didn't have chili oil so i used sesame oil instead and i also added chopped green onion and a tiny bit of grated garlic and ginger. Ok so i completely changed the recipe...it's still good though!

Just made this for dinner tonight! It is perfect with potstickers. Had to use hot sesame oil because that is all we had. Will be making again. Read More

This was pretty good. It tasted like the packets of sauce that come with the frozen potstickers i buy from the supermarket. The only change i would make is to use low sodium soy sauce because it was a bit too salty for my personal taste. I might also try adding ginger next time like some have suggested. Other than that great dip. Thanx for the recipe!! Read More

Exactly how my Japanese mother made it and how I remember it growing up. I make mine this way too. Sometimes I will use hot sesame oil in place of chili oil. Read More
