Chinese Sweet N Sour Sauce

This is a super easy sauce that provides a little sweetness, a little sourness, and just a hint of spicy hotness. However, you can adjust any of those levels up or down to your liking: 

Here are the ingredients I used: 

  • 2 Tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 1 Tbsp Rice Vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Honey
  • 1/2 Tbsp Orange Juice
  • 1/2 Tbsp Pineapple Juice
  • 2 Tbsp Chile-Garlic Sauce (This the same as Sriracha sauce but with garlic too, so if you have Sriracha just use that and then also add a clove or two of minced garlic to this recipe)
  • *Optional*: Cornstarch- to thicken sauce to a more glaze-like consistency, if desired.

Just mix all of the ingredients together in a measuring cup so that it's ready to pour into your stir fry :)

Isn't it so pretty! You can see all the fun pepper flakes and its beautiful, deep pomegranate color
**If you want a little extra to serve in a dish on the side, or if you would like it a little thicker in the stir fry, like a glaze, stir in a couple teaspoons of corn starch to let it thicken up.
