Not only for stir fries but also for marinates and as dip, it is good to have a amazing sauce that gives everything its flavors. My Sweet and Sour sauce is what we all need!

Step 1: Mixing all the wet ingredients in a small sauce pan.

What you need for this recipe:

Not a lot of hassle with this sauce. Just make sure you have the following simple ingredients at hand:

  • pineapple juice
  • cornstarch +water
  • ketchup
  • ketzap manis
  • rice vinegar

Step 2: Whisking everything together and bringing slowly to a simmer.

How to make homemade Sweet and Sour Sauce

Go ahead and add pineapple juice, ketchup, ketzap manis, and rice vinegar to a pot and bring slowly to a boil. Let cook for 1 minute on medium heat.

Mix water with cornstarch in a small bowl then add mixture into the pot whole stirring with a wire whisker. Let the sauce thicken to its desired consistency, then remove from heat.

Finally let it cool down a bit, and give the sauce in an airtight container.

After simmering on low, adding a bit of corn starch to thicken.

Use immediately or store for later. With a lid on top it will keep fresh for 1 week. This is great and so handy, I suggest you make easily double or triple batches to store in the fridge when you need even more.

This is such a great condiment for dinner, lunch, or make ahead meals, to which you want to add more flavor.

Marinate or dipping is also great, because the flavors compliment many food items. You can play around and simple enjoy at any time when you want.

Works perfectly with vegetables and stir fries.

Hi Wendy! Ketzap manis is a sweet soy sauce. You can find it in most supermarkets or online. Hope that helps.
