When I was a kid growing up my mother had her old standbys for dinner. Meatloaf, spaghetti, and everyone’s favorite, sweet and sour chicken. It’s not hard. It’s not fancy. But we all loved to eat it. Well, I loved it minus the chicken. Heck, I’d eat just the rice with the sauce and soy sauce on it.
So tonight I decided to make sweet and sour veggies. I have fake chicken in the freezer, but it’s been a long day and I’m too lazy to get it out, THAT’s how easy this recipe is. I can’t even be bothered to warm up some fake chicken in the microwave.
Sweet and Sour Sauce
1/4 c. ketchup
1/4 c. vinegar
1/3 c. brown sugar
2 Tbs. soy sauce
1 c. pineapple juice
1/4 c. pineapple juice with 2 Tbs corn starch
- combine all but the last two ingredients in a small saucepan over medium low heat
- in a separate bowl combine the pineapple juice and cornstarch
- when ingredients in pan are combined, add in corn starch mixture a little at a time until a nice sauce has formed
Heat up some stir fry frozen veggies. If you used pineapple juice from a can of pineapple chunks, you can add in the pineapple to the stir fry!
