Pineapple Sweet and Sour Sauce
Ingredients30 m servings 58 cals
- Whisk 1/4 cup pineapple juice and cornstarch together in a small bowl until smooth.
- Combine cornstarch mixture, remaining 1 3/4 cup pineapple juice, sugar, ketchup, vinegar, soy sauce, crushed pineapple, and garlic powder in a large pot over high heat. Cook, stirring frequently, until sauce comes to a gentle boil. Reduce heat and continue to simmer until sauce is clear and reaches desired consistency, 15 to 25 minutes.
- Cook's Note:
- I always use the pineapple juice from 2 cans of pineapple chunks and crush 4 to 5 of the chunks for the crushed pineapple, then the pineapple chunks are ready for your sweet and sour pork or chicken.
- Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.
