My refrigerator is 75% mysterious sauces in jelly jars.

And, I’m always on the hunt for another new sauce. This sauce, like any other, should be tweaked to your liking by adding a bit more of this or that. I think the combination of flavors really works here though. Light or dark soy, a mellow rice vinegar paired with a hearty black vinegar (if you don’t have black, just up the rice vinegar by a tsp), sugar, grated ginger, sesame oil, and a pinch of white pepper. I like to top it with green onions and sesame seeds. I’m also known to add a bit more sugar, I really like the sweet and salty combination.
