Dumpling dipping sauce recipe?

grayum | Dec 14, 2010 06:57 PM

Does anyone have a recipe for the dipping sauce that comes with pan-fried dumplings when you order Chinese takeout? I've been experimenting with cooking dumplings, and they've turned out pretty well, but the sauce, while acceptable, isn't quite what I want. I've tried lots of combinations of black vinegar, chianking vinegar, sesame oil, different types of soy, chili oil, scallions, ginger, garlic . . . it just doesn't taste the same. It seems like this sauce is pretty standard across restaurants, so I feel like it shouldn't be this hard. Is it possible that it is a prepared sauce that I could buy at a Chinese grocery store? Any suggestions? Thanks!
