Sweet and spicey, just the way we like it! Simple to make, and very inexpensive compared to store brands. You'll find yourself putting this on everything!


  • 1/4 cup Rice Vinegar
  • 1/4 cup Hot Water
  • 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 2-3 cloves Garlic ((minced))
  • 1 tsp Chili Garlic Sauce ((optional))
  • 1/2 tsp Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Ginger
  • 1 Tbs Ketchup
  • 1 Tbs Corn Starch
  • 1 Tbs Water


  1. Heat the water and vinegar in a small pan
  2. Whisk in the sugar and stir until it dissolves
  3. Add the garlic and garlic sauce and continue stirring
  4. Add the red pepper flakes and ginger and stir some more
  5. Take a taste – I like to add the Ketchup to mine as I like the tomato flavor (and color, Sriracha would work too)
  6. Mix the cold water and corn starch and whisk it into the sauce – it will thicken quickly
