Asian Sesame Dipping Sauce

Sesame sauce makes a great dipping sauce for spring rolls, or it can be added to a stir-fry dish at the end of cooking. If chili paste is already included in the recipe, do not add it to the sauce.

  • 4 Tbsp. chicken broth
  • 2 Tbsp. Chinese red rice vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. sesame oil
  • 2 tsp. sesame seeds
  • 1⁄2 Tbsp. granulated sugar
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled and finely minced
  • 2 tsp. cornstarch


  • Combine chicken broth, vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil, sesame seeds, sugar, and garlic in a bowl.
