Making my own but I am missing 2 ingredients Chinese hot sauce and Sesame oil. Can I omit the two?? We rarely use the sesame oil and I never use Chinese hot sauce. I have olive oil that I can put in the dish (it's not extra virgin so it pretty tasteless). Seems pointless to buy these 2 ingredients if I am only using them once or twice. Thanks.

Sesame oil has a very distinct flavor. You shouldn't omit it. It keeps for a long time. Invest in a bottle. You'll find other uses for it.
Can't help you with the "Chinese Hot sauce" tho. Suggest you just use a little Tobasco if you can't find it.

The sesame oil would be a must. Sriracha or something should work for the hot sauce.

As Eureka1 said, you'll find uses for the sesame oil. You can use it to make salad dressing. Also, saute shrimp in it -- yum!!!!

You might be able to buy the sauce at the Chinese joint. Are you trying to make General Tso's chicken?

Make sure you buy dark, or toasted, sesame oil. Once you taste it, you will look for things to make with it.

I make a peanut sauce in the Cuisinart with garlic, ginger, peanuts (or peanut butter), sherry vinegar, cilantro, olive oil, and dark sesame oil. And a salad dressing that's essentially the same thing except I use Dijon mustard instead of peanuts. They're both emulsion sauces, kind of like making mayonnaise in the Cuisinart.

I was making the sauce to go with roasted duck. I made it without the sesame oil and hot sauce and hubby liked it.

I agree. Nowadays you can get Sriracha at just about any grocery store.
