How to Make Sweet And Sour Beef


  • 1Whisk together the pineapple juice, vinegar, ketchup, salt, and brown sugar and set aside. Cook onions in a hot frying pan with olive oil. Pour a small amount of water to the pan to create steam. Stir constantly. When onions are almost translucent, put into a large bowl.
  • 2Then stir-fry peppers and transfer to bowl when softened. You can stir-fry the pineapple a little if you want too, and put in bowl when seared.
  • 3Then add meat to pan along with a little oil. Cook until meat is browned and almost cooked through. Then, add ginger.
  • 4Add juice mixture to meat and cook until sauce is thick. (You can thicken with cornstarch if you'd like). Add a little soy sauce to the mixture to taste.
  • 5Stir all ingredients together to coat with sauce and then serve over rice.
