Sweet And Sour Sauce Recipe

Recipe By The Spruce Eats

Sweet and sour pork and in fact sweet and sour in general is very popular in chinese cuisine. But do you know there are many different ways to make sweet and sour sauce? When thinking of sweet and sour we often think of the sweet and sour from our local chinese (cantonese) restaurant or our local takeaway. This is shown in the first recipe but its far from my favorite way of making sweet and sour. I personally love shanghai style sweet and sour sauce. Its less sweet than recipe one and my grandfather used to cook this for me all the time when i was a child. I recently made this sauce for my latest cookbook and my husband loved it so much i ended up cooking it almost every day for a week. Edited by liv wan.
