Those irresistible potstickers pair perfectly with a mix of soy sauce, vinegar, sesame oil, sugar, and red pepper flakes.
You can add more or less vinegar depending on how tangy you like it. You can also add more or less red pepper flakes depending on how you tolerate spicy food.
This sauce is so simple, you just toss all the ingredients into a bowl and stir it up. And did I mention it’s insanely good!
