"This is great sauce. Use for dipping or poured over rice and chicken."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

This is the sweet and sour recipe that I've been looking for!
It really is sweet and sour not just sweet with more sweet.
Not really all that good. I was looking for an authentic sweet and sour and this one just didn't have the flavor.
Absolutely WOW! We had to make a couple of substitutions so we could use what we had on hand: 1) crushed pineapple instead of tidbits, 2) rice vinegar instead of distilled white, and 3) one little packet of pepper flakes from the local pizza chain store instead of the full teaspoon. We used it as a dipping sauce with pork eggrolls and even tried it on sweet potato fries.
The results: this is hands down the BEST sweet and sour sauce we've ever tasted!! This will definitely be our go-to recipe from now on. Thank you for sharing your recipe! :o)
This was very good. My nine year old said it was "spot on"! I left out the pepper flakes and just used the hot sauce.
A wonderfully delicious sweet and sour sauce!! My variation is slight:
I used apple cider vinegar instead of the white vinegar. I omitted the steak sauce and used Worcestershire Sauce instead. I added a little bit of ground ginger and garlic powder to taste. --> that's it! Otherwise I followed this recipe to a tee!
I also cut the recipe in half since I am single and stored the left over in a jar in the refrigerator for another night.
Thanks for this wonderful recipe!!
Wow is right! No more store bought sweet-n-sour sauce for us! This was so good I made another batch so it would be ready for our next stir-fry night! Thanks for a great recipe!
Made this sweet & sour sauce tonight with some chicken and rice and the entire family loved it. Said it was comparable to that of our local Chinese restaurant's homemade sauce. Just a small alteration we made was to use fresh pineapple, rather than the canned (we mashed up the fresh to get some of the juices out, then tossed it all in). Also, since my daughters are 4 and 5 yrs old, they have no tolerance for anything remotely spicy, so we left out the red pepper flakes...but somehow were able to sneak the dash of hot pepper sauce by them :) Oh, also, for our family we cut this recipe in half and still had a good amount leftover!
Awesome sauce! I followed the recommendations of other reviewers, and cut the sugar to just a bit more than a cup, maybe a "heaping" cup. Only a pinch of red pepper flakes, too. We will DEFINITELY use this recipe again! Great recipe!
