It has taken me a long time and many trials and errors to discover what I believe to be an ideal dipping sauce for pot stickers etc. Here it is. You can use any amounts you desire depending on how much sauce you will need. the only measurements that are important are the ratios.
- 2 ounces soy sauce
- 1 1⁄2 ounces rice wine vinegar
- 1 ounce mirin
- 1 garlic clove, finely minced
- 1 Thai chile
- 1 slice grated gingerroot
- 3 tablespoons sugar, about
- Mix all ingredients and serve.
- I suggest that you allow the sauce to sit for at least half an hour so all the flavors can blend together and make a smoother sauce.
I used this for dipping sauce for Pot Stickers (Chinese Dumplings) . I thought it was just a touch too sweet. But my dh really liked it. I like the kick that the chile gives it. I think I will try this with my lettuce wraps instead of my usual sauce. Thank you very much for sharing this lovely recipe.
Eggcellent on eggrolls and springrolls, although I skipped the sugar. Oh, and to anyone who decides to make this wonderful sauce, I recommend adding just a touch of sesame oil to *really* give it a nice flavor. I had to use powdered ginger, which worked out just fine, and I also didn't have the Thai chile so I used my Sriracha hot chili sauce (I love this stuff), which is another reason why I opted to skip the sugar since the Sriracha already has a little sugar in it. I highly recommend this dipping sauce recipe!
