Sweet and sour sauce
This is a sweet and sour sauce that I made up by combining a few recipes I found and trying to remember what my friend used to put in the one she made that was so good.
Syrup from 1 can of pineapple chunks
¼ cup tomato sauce
¼ cup vinegar
¼ cup brown sugar
½ tsp mustard
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 ½ tbsp corn-starch mixed with a bit of water
Place all the ingredients except the corn-starch in a small saucepan and bring to the boil until everything is dissolved. Remove from the heat and add the corn-starch and water. Stir until it thickens to the desired consistency.
This sauce is great with chicken or pork and any that is left over will keep in the fridge for a few weeks.
