  • This sauce tastes a lot fresher than its bottled counterpart. Also, it’s a bit more spicy…but that’s what I LOVE about it. Bring on the heat! If you’re not so much into the heat, only use half of the red pepper flakes or omit the sriracha.

  • Ingredients

  • 3/4

    cup of Sugar

  • 1/4

    cup Rice Vinegar

  • 1/4

    cup of water

  • 1

    tbsp finely minced garlic (about 5-6 garlic cloves)

  • 1

    teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

  • 1

    teaspoon Sriracha (or less)

  • 1

    tbsp of cornstarch

  • 1

    tbsp of cold water

  • 1/2

    teaspoon salt

Directions

Add 1/4 cup water, rice vinegar, and sugar to a pot over medium-high heat. When the mixtures starts to boil, add the garlic and red pepper flakes. Bring the boil down to a simmer and let it simmer for another couple of minutes. This will make sure all of the flavors get infused nicely. Add the sriracha. In a separate small bowl, mix the cornstarch and 1 TB cold water until the cornstarch is dissolved. Bring the sauce to a low boil again and add the cornstarch/water mixture and salt. The sauce will begin to thicken up immediately. Cook, while constantly stirring, until the mixture reaches desired thickness…about 3-5 minutes. Let the sauce cool and then dip away!
