Servings: 1 cup


1/2 cup rice vinegar
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon garlic, minced
1 teaspoon ginger root, grated
1 tablespoon Sriracha
1/2 teaspoon chili flakes
2 tablespoons cornstarch
  1. Combine vinegar, sugar, garlic, ginger, sriracha and chili flakes in a small pot and bring to a simmer over medium heat. 
  2. Cook for 5-7 minutes, or until mixture begins to turn syrupy, then reduce heat to low. 
  3. Mix cornstarch in 1/4 cup of water and stir into sauce. Bring back up to a simmer — sauce should thicken substantially. 
  4. Remove from heat and serve. Can be kept tightly covered and refrigerated for up to a week.
