    1. In a small saucepan over a medium low heat, whisk (using a metal whisk) together vinegar and cornflour. Add oil, pineapple juice, ketchup, brown sugar and salt and whisk constantly until the mixture is heated through.

    Tip:

    If you want to achieve a thicker consistency, dissolve another 1/4 teaspoon of cornflour in 2 or 3 tablespoons of cold water. Once dissolved, stir the mixture into the sauce and continue to heat and whisk until sauce thickens.

    Very good! It's more sour than sweet, so if you like it sweet then add more of the pineapple juice and brown sugar.  -  05 Jun 2000  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Great dipping sauce! If you like more sweet than sour, use rice wine vinegar instead of white vinegar. I also like my sauces a little thicker, so I added a bit more cornstarch as the submitter suggested. If you want a richer color, add a couple drops of red food coloring - it works wonders. This stuff was great and my husband took one taste and all he could say was "Mmmmmmm". We ate this with egg rolls, and it was perfect.  -  17 May 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    This was really good! I was looking for a sauce to use to make sweet sour chicken with veggies and this worked great. I sauteed some chicken until browned, added sliced carrots, onions red peppers, cooked for a few more minutes, then added the sauce and let it simmer for about 10 minutes. It thickened a little and coated everything nicely. Easy and tasty!  -  01 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
