    My family really liked this dipping sauce. I didn't have any korean red pepper powder so I just used red pepper flakes. It was perfect for Kittencal's Asian Pork Dumplings (#87762). Thank you Grace for posting this recipe!

    This sauce is excellent!! It is one of the best dipping sauces I have had in a long time.. I used low sodium soy sauce and black sesame seed oil, which tasted just like toasted sesame seed oil. I used it as a dipping sauce for a tuna steak I had seared in a skillet. I served rice with it too. I put some of the sauce on the rice which made the rice taste really good. I will definitely be making this again. I always have the ingredients on hand. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Made for Pac Spring '08 Orphanage.

    I loved this very quick Korean Dipping Sauce and enjoyed them with the zucchini as shown on PanNan's picture. However, I found it too salty. I will therefore use less soy sauce next time, but I also think that soy sauces differ in their salt content, so the stated amount may be fine for others. This dipping sauce together with something to dip of course makes a lovely appetizer or TV meal.
