How to Prepare Chinese Sweet And Sour Sauce

Typical Chinese dishes incorporating sweet and sour sauce are sweet and sour pork tenderloin, spareribs, shrimp and chicken.

  • 4 tbsp Corn oil
  • 4-5 slice Ginger
  • 1 tbsp Garlic, minced
  • 1 stalk Spring onion
  • 2 stalk Dried chillies
  • 150 g Pineapple (preferable fresh)
  • 10 g Dried Hawthorns
  • 1 cup Water
  • 4 tbsp Ketchup
  • 3 tbsp Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Sherry (preferable Jiafan rice wine)
  • 2 tbsp Lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp Maggi sauce
  • 1/2 tsp White pepper powder
  • 1 tsp Salt
  1. Use a serrated knife to cut off the leave stem of the pineapple. Quarter the pineapple lengthwise and remove the core. Cut the pineapple into the small chunks. Cut the spring onion and chillies into smaller pieces. Set a skillet over medium heat until hot and add in oil. When hot, stir in ginger, garlic and white parts of spring onion until aromatic. Add in the green parts of the spring onion, pineapples, dried hawthorns and the seasoning.
  2. Adjust the fire to high and bring all the ingredients to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes. Remove the vegetables and pineapples, adjust the heat to high and reboil the sauce. Thicken the sauce with 1 tablespoon of starch solution. When cool, store in a covered container in the fridge.
