Sweet and Sour Sauce


  • 2 cups chicken stock (or water)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup red-wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice (or cold water)


1. Stir together chicken stock, sugar, vinegar, soy sauce, garlic powder, and salt in a bowl or large measuring cup.
2. Cook, stirring every minute or so, until boiling. Boil for about a minute (or until sugar is dissolved).
3. In a separate bowl, combine the corn starch and pineapple juice. Stir until the lumps are gone.
4. Stir in the cornstarch mixture. If it's been sitting for a while, give it a quick stir before adding.
5. Cook for about a minute or so, until the mixture is thickened.
