I make this sauce to use with pork, chicken, sausage, or shrimp. It is very versatile and very easy to make. I have even used frozen popcorn chicken to make a quick meal.

  • 2Bring to a boil. While waiting, drain pineapple and cherries of juice. Cut bell pepper and onion into strips
  • 3Mix cornstarch and water in a small mug or bowl. Add to sauce and whisk. The sauce will begin to thicken, reduce heat.
  • 4Add onions, peppers, pineapples, and cherries. Just keep on heat long enough to each the veggies and fruit. Remove from heat.
