Basic Sweet and Sour Sauce - TastyPlanner.com
This is a basic sauce for anything. Whether it’s chicken tenders, egg rolls or an actual sweet and sour dish, this is a great sauce to make. It’s just delicious and so easy!
2 c. vinegar, white or rice
3/4 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. + 2 tbs. ketchup
2 tbs. soy sauce
1/4 c. cornstarch
1/2 c. cool water
In a medium pot, mix vinegar, sugar, ketchup and soy sauce together; bring to a low boil.
In a small bowl, mix cornstarch and water, then gently stir into the boiling pot.
Cook and stir until thickened.
Makes about 3 cups.
TIP: This doesn’t freeze as perfectly as some dishes, because of the cornstarch. It tastes the same, but looks separated and rather glumpy (I have no other word to use to describe it). If you don’t mind how it looks, it can be frozen, it just won’t be as attractive looking is all.
