This is a simple sweet and sour sauce with nice depth of flavor. You can use it for marinating chicken and pork or for a dipping sauce. Goes great with meatballs for something a little different. For a zesty kick, add some bottled hot pepper sauce.

This was okay. It was a bit on the sweet side so added 2 gloves of minced garlic and some that chili paste. I used an immersion blender and left a few smaller chunks of pineapple. After my additions it turned out to our liking. If you like a sweeter sauce this is it... But can easily be adjusted according to your taste. Read More

Super easy and delicious. I had all the ingredients on hand. I changed it up a little by leaving the pineapple in chunks restaurant style and added thinly sliced tomatoes one minute before removing from heat. Served over sautéed veggies and shrimp. It was a hit! Will definitely make this again. Read More

Very easy to make as I had everything already in my pantry except pineapple. So I substituted orange juice to add the fruity sweetness. So good. I will try it again when I do have a can of pineapples. Served it with Aidells chicken pineapple meatballs and rice. Read More
