Thread: Substitute for rice vinegar?

    Substitute for rice vinegar?

    I have a recipe for Beef Satay with Peanut Sauce. The sauce calls for rice vinegar, which I don't have. Any decent subs? I really don't want to go to the store just for this one ingredient that I may not even use that often.

    Rice vinegar is worth having on hand. It's appropriate for any Asian cooking and anywhere you don't want a strong vinegar. It's very mild. I would sub white wine vinegar; failing that, regular white vinegar, maybe watered down a bit.

    or lime juice, which generally pair well with Asian cooking. It would be a nice addition to the satay you are making. Speaking from a girl who comes from Satay land.

    Ok, maybe I will buy it since it sounds like I could use it for more than this one dish. Thanks!

    There are two kinds of rice vinegar - sweetened (mirin) & regular. You might check to see which kind the recipe calls for before you shop.
