Classic Sweet and Sour Sauce

This Sweet and Sour Sauce is so good you’ll never buy that bottled crap again. Unless it’s Sweet Chili Sauce of course (I love that stuff). This recipe is so easy too. You can pretty much just throw everything in the blender, then cook it on the stove until it thickens; which is only as long as it takes to bring it to a boil.  And, truth be told, you can even cut this recipe in half if you don’t want to add all of the veggies and just go with all of the other listed ingredients.  But, I’m telling ya, if you want it to taste as good as mine I wouldn’t recommend it!

If you need a Chinese Batter recipe for pork, chicken or Shrimp, like I used at the end of this video, just click the link below. I’ve also included a link for Orange Peel Chicken, which is a fantastic sauce, so definitely check that out!

I'm just a regular guy in search of his bliss and I find that bliss in food and all of its many cultural differences. A very seasoned and experience chef taught me how to use my pallet to best serve and prepare a dish with all of its natural flavors from other foods before ever introducing “forced flavoring”, such as salt. My goal isn’t just to teach how to incorporate these products into simple gourmet dishes but to show, how easy, it can be done from anyone's Kitchen with cheaper, convenient substitutions that will not only blow your mind, but insure that most no one will be able to ever tell the difference!
