  1. Mix dark brown sugar, cornstarch, garlic powder, and ground ginger together in a saucepan until well-combined. Add red wine vinegar, pineapple juice, and soy sauce. Cook and stir over medium heat until bubbling, about 8 minutes. Add crushed pineapple; cook until thickened, 2 to 3 minutes more.

I put this on meatballs, and it was fine. However, the amount of vinegar was too strong for us.
