2 small onions,
2 garlic cloves,
1 piece of ginger (about 5cm long),
2 tablespoons vegetable oil (I used olive oil),
2 tablespoons soy sauce,
2 tablespoons dry white wine,
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar,
3 tablespoons ketchup,
2 tablespoons brown sugar
125ml fruit juice (orange, pineapple or pineapple puree),
1 tablespoon starch,
2 tablespoons water.
Sweet and sour sauce is usually firmly associated with Chinese food, which is delicious. While most of are familiar with sweet and sour sauce with pork, I like to use the sauce with beef and chicken meat. The sauce is also great for dipping deep fried vegetables (like fries), meat (like nuggets) or seafood in. The “sweet” flavour is given by brown or white sugar, the “sour” flavour comes from vinegar. Most authentic recipes include dry white wine, ketchup is used for a classic red colour. The amount of sugar and vinegar used can be adjusted to your own taste.
