I have tried a few different recipes for sweet and sour sauce from this site and from other cookbooks and none of them ever seemed to be quite right, so I experimented a few times and this is the one I liked the best. Now it's the only sauce I use for my sweet and sour pork or chicken.

  • 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.n

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.
