Super Easy Spicy Korean Style Soy Dipping Sauce

Super Easy Spicy Korean Style Soy Dipping Sauce

This sauce is not only delicious with mandu, potstickers, egg rolls, wonton, and gyoza, but it's yummy with your steamed rice, as a dip for satay or other meat skewers, or as a dressing for an Asian-inspired cold noodle salad when mixed with a little toasted sesame oil and an additional acid element like a squeeze of lemon or extra rice vinegar.

Or, if you ask some of the people who've tried this recipe before, as shots. :P
