Sweet and Sour Sauce- EASY
One of my friends who is an authentic Chinese person was horrified. She told me it is no where near a real Chinese sweet and sour. I'm sorry Lee, but I do like it and its easy. :)
So I'm passing this along with the warning that its not real Chinese but maybe you will like it as much as I do.
1 can(s)(8 ounces) crushed pineapple in own juice
1 cunsweetened pineapple juice
1/2 cbrown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 ccider vinegar
1 pinchdried red pepper flakes, optional
How to Make Sweet and Sour Sauce- EASY
- Pour un-drained canned pineapple in blender. Process until finely chopped. Pour pineapple into a medium saucepan with catsup, juice, brown sugar, and vinegar. If using pepper add now.
Cook over medium/high heat, stirring, until mixture just begins to boil. Reduce heat and cook (stirring frequently) until mixture reaches the consistency you desire. Store any unused sauce in frig.
- Use to make any sweet and sour dish. Just stir fry meat and veggies and add this sauce before serving over rice.
I like this as a dip for egg rolls, especially with the red pepper.
