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!

Chinese Fry Batter – Chicken, Pork, Shrimp, Oreos and Cheesecake

Chinese Fry Batter

The Best Chinese Fry Batter

This Chinese Fry Batter is amazing and it’s the easiest recipe I have posted to date!  The genius behind this recipe really is the general simplicity of the whole thing because how diverse this batter really is.  I’m talking about a whole spin of dishes this can be used for because it’s that good.  I know I say that about most of the recipes I post but I have yet to be challenged on anything I’ve advertised by anyone that has made my food.  That being said, start thinking about the possibilities here. 

How to use this Fry Batter

First of all, anything Asian, that requires Chinese Fry Batter, can use this recipe; Sweet and Sour Pork, Chicken, Honey Shrimp, Orange Peel or Sesame Chicken, the original Egg Roll (egg rolls that are dipped in batter then fried), Firecracker Shrimp.  The list goes on and on.  And, when I say ON, I mean Southern Style Fried Oreo’s, Cheesecake and Candy Bars.  I’ve even figured out how to turn this Chinese Fry Batter into amazing Corn Dog Batter!  So watch for videos like these in the very near future,  because these treats are served at City, County and State fairs all over the country.

My Chinese cooking experience is really extensive so might want to select “Chinese Food” in the Categories drop Down menu.  Be Sure To check out my Sweet and Sour Sauce , my Perfect Tempura and my Orange Peel Chicken recipes if you’re interested.  And if you want to have some real fun, you better look into my Fried Chicken Feet recipe, too.
