Gyoza Sauce

READY IN: 3mins
Recipe by DangerBun

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!
