Sweet and Sour Sauce

Last week I made some sweet and sour pork. I used left over pork loin from Sunday's dinner, steamed up some veggies and rice, and then poured this yummy sauce over it. I also added pineapple to mine and the kids' plates, but not to Steve's as he is allergic. It got rave reviews from the kids, so it looks like this will be a keeper recipe. I hope your family likes it too.

Sweet and Sour Sauce

1 1/4 C. Water
3/4 C. Sugar (I used 1/2 C. Splenda and 1/4 C. Sugar to save calories)
1 Chicken bullion cube
1/2 C. Ketchup
1 T. Soy sauce

Add all ingredients in a sauce pan and bring to a boil. If you prefer it thicker, add a little cornstarch. Serve over your rice, meat, and veggies as desired.

Scripture of the Day: 3 Nephi 14:13-14 (in Henry B. Eyring's talk 'Help Them on Their Way Home')


  1. That looks great!! I am still looking for more ways to serve veggies to my family. We have eaten a lot and found some good recipes, but this one looks like it could be a winner! Thanks.

  2. That's a recipe I'll definitely have to try. I was just thinking tonight as we were eating stir fry that I'd like to find a good sweet and sour recipe!
