Asian Dipping Sauce
My husband is a huge fan of Chinese food, me- not so much. I always end up feeling gross after eating a big order of Chinese Takeout, so instead I try to make some delicious Chinese meal at home.
This Asian sauce is one of my favorite creations so far! It’s sweet and tangy- perfect for all your dipping needs!
I am a huge fan of Orange Chicken, but when I do not want to take the time to cook a big meal but still want Chinese, I love to cook up some pot stickers and some of this sauce.
I’ve even used this to coat these chicken skewers and it was delicious!
How to make Asian dipping sauce?
Mix together everything (except the cornstarch slurry) in a medium sized sauce pan.
Bring to a boil.
Mix together the cornstarch slurry then add to the sauce pan.
Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer 10-15 minutes.
How do I get my sauce to be really thick?
Simmer the sauce longer- maybe for another 10 minutes or until it’s to your desired thickness. Make sure to continue to stir occasionally and make sure it doesn’t burn.
Where do I find red pepper flakes?
You can find these in the spice isle or I’ve even used those packets of red pepper flakes that pizza places give you. No shame!
What can I use this Asian garlic sauce for?
I love dipping pot stickers and egg rolls in it, but it also makes a great sauce for coating chicken and used in stir frys!

Asian Dipping Sauce
- ½ cup white vinegar
- ¾ cup water
- 5 cloves garlic minced
- ½ cup lime juice
- 1 cup honey
- 1 tbs soy sauce or coconut aminos
- 1 tsp sesame oil
- 1 tsp red pepper flakes
- 1 tsp ginger
- 4 tsp cornstarch
- 1 tbs water
- Combine vinegar, ¾ cup water, minced garlic, lime juice, honey, soy sauce (or coconut aminos), sesame oil, red pepper flakes, and ginger in a medium sized sauce pan. (1/2 cup white vinegar, ¾ cup water, 5 cloves minced garlic, ½ cup lime juice, 1 cup honey, 1 tbs soy sauce, 1 tsp sesame oil, 1 tsp red pepper flakes, 1 tsp ginger)
- Bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil for 5 minutes, stirring constantly.
- Mix together the cornstarch and 1 tbs of water in a small bowl, then add it to the sauce pan with everything else. (4 tsp cornstarch, 1 tbs water)
- Bring mixture to a boil then reduce heat and simmer 10-15 minutes stirring occasionally. You want the sauce to thicken enough to coat the back of a spoon.
- Once the mixture is done simmering remove from heat and allow to come to room temperature. It will thicken even more as it cools.
