If I could do anything in my power to convince you to make this heavenly Sweet and Sour Sauce, I would do it! It’s a perfect combination of silky sweetness and tangy sour. It’s wonderful over chicken, veggies, pork, noodles or even just plain rice. You should be made aware that it is super simple to make and will only set you back 10 minutes of time…start to finish.

I will be sharing a killer chicken and veggie recipe tomorrow that I made with this sauce. Hope to see you then!

  1. This sounds really good! I like having recipes for condiments I don’t use that often. About how much sauce will this make? Thanks for the recipe!

  2. What soy sauce did you use? With 2 tablespoons of it, the sauce is completely dark :/ I expected the color like on the picture above 🙂
    The taste is not bad, but nothing exclusive.
