Today I am showing and telling about the sauce that has saved my dinner times many times over - Sweet and Sour sauce. When I am running late or running short on pantry items I pull out the ingredients for this sauce and make up a quick and easy meal.
1. mix top 7 ingredients into frying pan (I use a wok) and bring to slow boil while stirring,
2. Add remaining 2 ingredients and stir until boiling again until thickened
That's it for the sauce. I have used meatballs (as in the picture), stir fried chicken pieces, and pork chunks. The pineapple and green pepper are really just options - if I have them. Sometimes I'll caramelize onion wedges to add in, too, and the bed of noodles in the picture can be replaced with rice.
It really is a 'search and rescue' pantry meal - and my family always likes the different versions presented to them. It's the sauce that sells it!
