Juicy Chinese Sweet & Sour Sauce
Sweet and Sour Sauce is a sauce made by combing a sweet component and a sour component with cornstarch as the thickening agent. Some of the common sweet components are brown sugar, granulated white sugar, and honey. Rice vinegar, white vinegar, apple-cider vinegar, and pineapple juice are some of the common ingredients used as sour component.This sweet and sour recipe will give you a good sauce with the right balance of flavors.
The thing that I like most about this Sweet and Sour Sauce Recipe is its ease in preparation — not to mention the fact that it does not take much time to make one. It also saves me money; instead of buying commercialized Sweet and Sour Sauce from the store, I make one for myself and my family with less than half of the cost.
This Sweet and Sour Sauce Recipe is best used for fried and breaded meat like pork, chicken, and fish.
Yields about 1/2 cup
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes
1/3 cup white or rice vinegar (Note: rice vinegar gives better results)
4 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon ketchup
1 teaspoon soy sauce
2 teaspoons cornstarch mixed with 4 teaspoons water
Mix the vinegar, brown sugar, ketchup, and soy sauce together and bring to a boil in a small pot. Mix together the cornstarch and water, add to the other ingredients and stir to thicken.
(If desired, you can add 1 green pepper, cut into chunks, and pineapple chunks as desired after adding the cornstarch. For a thicker sauce, increase the cornstarch to 4 teaspoons while keeping the water constant.)
