"I made this the day before and I thought for sure the ginger would be too strong, but it wasn't. I doubled it and it is a great sauce. I used it with #98345 potstickers. Keeper!"
"This is some good "stuff"!! I loved the flavors of ginger and soy...then kicked up a notch by the red pepper. The only substitution I made was Splenda for the sugar, and I only used 2 tsps instead of 2 1/2 tsps. I did double the recipe, so I could try it out on asparagus. It was so good that I also used it on okra. Don't laugh....that was fantastic too! Thanks, Bev for sharing this keeper. "
"This is exactly what I was looking for. Thanks so much for posting. I used this with crispy wontons #20235, and it was perfect. I had leftover pork mixture from wontons, so I fried it up in a skillet and served it in lettuce leaves with this sauce. I think I have a new favorite. My fiance says that I could put this sauce on anything and he would eat it."
"Great dipping sauce. I followed recipe exactly except that I used 1/2 tsp sambal oelek instead of hot red pepper flakes. I served it with Pot Stickers #13320, and Yakisoba #82262."
"it tasted perfect"
"Recipe is a winner! As I am on vacation, a few changes made are: use brown sugar rather than white; 1/2 tsp minced shallot rather than green onion; 1 tsp ginger paste rather than fresh ginger root; and one shake of hot pepper flakes rather than the 1/2 tsp. I also added 1/2 tsp minced fresh garlic clove. All made a perfect dipping sauce! Also, the sauce when mixed yielded 1/2 Cup in quantity rather than the 1 cup noted in this recipe...will certainly make this any time!"
"This has the WOW factor, true!
As the sesame oil comes right through!
Added diced fresh chilli, personal taste too!
Drizzled over beef wontons, WOW factor too!
UPDATE: Made this sauce again for a party!
I used tamari to lessen the salt flavour!! Came out GREAT!"
"This is fantastic! Exactly what you get from chinese restaurants when ordering potstickers. I cheated with the potstickers and used premade frozen wontons, but it was great. Thanks!"
"Hubby said he liked it but wouldn't ask for it to be made. I didn't like it, and I like salty. I felt I needed to add an extra tablespoon of sugar after tasting, and I still didn't like it. Oh well. :("
"Added a teaspoon of pressed garlic and used honey instead of sugar. Served my veggie potstickers with them and voila!"
"Simple and EXCELLENT! Thanks!"
"Very good. Thanks for the recipe. Four stars because I did not have fresh ginerroot; I used powdered."
"Yummy! I started this before I realized I was missing some stuff, so here are my changes...maybe they'll help someone. All I had was vanilla sugar, so that's what I used. I only had powdered ginger, so I used about a teaspoon of that instead of the fresh. I didn't have any scallions, so I just skipped that...and you know what? It was still pretty awesome, I can't wait to try it as it was meant to be made. Thanks Bev!"
"Thank you for posting this recipe! It is ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS! We love going to TGIF for potstickers but now we can do them at home with the great sauce. Kelly's Pot Sticker recipe #18359 are also FABULOUS! Try them, they are definitely worth the time!"
"Perfect for potstickers and on rice, on the side."
"Good stuff. Used this as dip for pork skewers that didn't have much flavor on their own - this sauce made the pork taste awesome. I added less ginger than called for but grated it so the flavor was really present anyway. Also added about twice the amount of water because I left it simmering on the stove while I finished grilling the meat and it cooked down too much and was really strong. Now need to learn to make pot stickers!"
"Good and spicy. Careful with wanting to put in extra ginger. I put in extra and wished I hadn't....Overall great sauce - smell and taste were really really good."
"This sauce was great for my chicken and pork pot sticker appetizers when company was over to visit. The perfect sauce for dipping and it will be enjoyed again!"
"I made this to finish the Chinese Pot Stickers also posted on Zaar. It was terrific and almost stole the show from the potstickers! Thanks for posting!"
