The addictive Gyoza (dumpling) sauce is usually sold premade in bottles at the Asian food store. We love it so much, and go through it so quickly, that I had to find a recipe to make at home. This is a very basic recipe, so feel free to adjust amounts to your taste, or add ingredients like garlic, ginger, wasabi & green onions. If the sauce has too much "bite" from the vinegar, add a pinch of sugar. This is also good with a splash of hot chili oil, if you're so inclined. Enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 13 cup soy sauce (we like the low-sodium variety)
  • 14 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • Tabasco sauce or hot sauce (We use sriracha)
  • 1 pinch sugar (optional)


  1. Mix all ingredients.
  2. Stores well in the refrigerator for months.
  3. Please Note: If you add fresh ingredients (like ginger or garlic), you may only be able to store the sauce for a week or two.

Perfect for our gyoza! Added just a touch of ground ginger.

This is a great recipe! I didn't have any gyoza sauce, so my son kept asking me for it. So I had to find a recipe to make it from scratch. I finally found it! Love, love, love the flavor and I think it tastes better than the bottle. My son loved it! I just didn't add the hot sauce and still came up nice. Next time I might add a little bit of ground ginger. Thank you for sharing!
