1 minute and 3 ingredients is all you need to make the best Gyoza Dipping Sauce. Salty, tangy, and with an optional spicy kick this is the only sauce you need for your dumplings and pot stickers.

What you need to make it
- Japanese soy sauce: I recommend a standard Japanese soy sauce like Kikkoman*. You can also use a low-sodium Japanese soy sauce, or another kind entirely, but it can change the flavor.
- Rice vinegar : you can use apple cider vinegar instead, but it will change the taste slightly
- Sesame oil: add more or less according to taste
- Red pepper flakes can be added, if you want a bit of a spicy kick to your sauce
How to make it
- Bring out a small bowl and pour in soy sauce
- Add rice vinegar
- Add sesame oil
- Mix - and you are done. Top with red chili flakes if you want to.
Tips & tricks
- Taste test and adjust to suit your taste buds perfectly
- Make it spicy by topping with red chili flakes
- Store leftovers in the fridge in an airtight container, it's good for many weeks. Add chili flakes just before serving, or it will become very spicy.
Traditionally, gyoza sauce is made from mixing half soy sauce and half vinegar, but this ratio can vary depending on how salty and acidic you like it. Common additions include chili, sesame oil, green onions, garlic and fresh ginger.
Generally, you should use rice vinegar. But if you don't have this you can often substitute apple cider vinegar.
