Sweet and Sour Sauce


  • 1/3 cup white or rice vinegar
  • 4 TB brown sugar 
  • 1 TB ketchup 
  • 1 tsp soy sauce 
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch mixed with 4 teaspoons water 

Mix the vinegar, brown sugar, ketchup, and soy sauce together and bring to a boil in a small pot. Mix together the cornstarch and water, add to the other ingredients and stir to thicken.

(If desired, you can add 1 green pepper, cut into chunks, and pineapple chunks as desired after adding the cornstarch. For a thicker sauce, increase the cornstarch to 4 teaspoons while keeping the water constant.)

Yields about 1/2 cup
