A recipe from Martin Yan, The Chinese Chef
This is SO super easy. It is easy to keep all of these ingredients on hand. It's part of the Sweet and Sour Chicken Stir-Fry recipe. It's also great with the chicken wings. My secret - I originally got the chicken wing recipe from the back of a sweet and Sour Sauce bottle. Since I found this recipe in my Martin Yan cookbook I haven't purchased a bottle of sweet and sour sauce since. It's too easy, MUCH better tasting and MUCH cheaper.
Sweet and Sour Sauce
1 tablespoon cornstarch and 1/3 cup water in saucepan
6 tablespoons brown sugar 2 teaspoons soy sauce
1/4 cup rice vinegar 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
1/4 cup orange Juice 1/4 teaspoon chili oil
3 tablespoons ketchup 1/4 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
2 tablespoons lemon juice 1 tablespoon shredded pickled ginger
1 tablespoon lime juice
Cook over medium heat, stirring, until sauce boils and thickens. Serve as dip.
