3-ingredient Dumpling Dipping Sauce. This is the easiest dumpling dipping sauce you'll ever make and it's so delicious with those crispy potstickers! It takes less than 2 minutes to make!
Easy to make!
My easy dumpling dipping sauce recipe contains light soy sauce, Chinkiang Vinegar or Chinese Black Vinegar and sesame oil! That's it.
You can always fancy it up by making your dipping sauce spicy with some chili oil, scallions, or sesame seeds too! This is also a vegan dumpling dipping sauce.
Growing up, I would just pair my dumplings with some soy sauce and call it a day but I always felt like my dumpling sauce was missing something! It was missing vinegar and sesame oil. And now this is best dumpling dipping sauce in my books that I heavily rely on! Sometimes I'll spice up my dumpling life with homemade CHINESE CHILI OIL!
For this dumpling dip recipe, there's a specific type of Asian black vinegar I would highly recommend using which is designed for dumplings. It's called Chinkiang Vinegar and it comes in this yellow bottle.
Now there are many dumpling dipping sauces online but if you want something easy, simple, authentic and delicious, this is it! It works well as a Korean dumpling sauce too because Korean dumplings share a few common ingredients as Chinese dumplings, such as pork being the main ingredient.
It tastes like a toned down version of vinegar. It's made of water, glutinous rice, wheat bran, sugar and salt. That's it!
This vinegar is usually sold at Chinese grocers. You may be able to find it online on Amazon but it's much most cost effective to find it at the store.
It's usually made of soy sauce, a rice vinegar, sesame oil and sometimes chili oil.
Yes you can at most Asian grocers but I find that they don't taste as great as homemade ones.
If you can't find this vinegar, substitute with rice vinegar.
