I'm very passionate about Asian food, but Chinese is probably the one I like the most. It tends to be a bit greasy at times, but those sauces they serve with the foods are just spectacular. The first sauce that comes to mind when I think about deliciousness, is definitely sweet and sour. However, despite the hundreds of recipes that you will find around on how to prepare this sauce, it just never comes out as good as the one you find in restaurants. Well, we took a stand and decided not only to make it delectable, but also to make it just as good as the ones you can find in any good Chinese restaurant. And hey, if you want to prove me wrong, it won't take much effort, as the ingredients are all readily available and the preparation itself is really a no-brainer.
- Place the sugar, the vinegar, the water, the ketchup and the salt into small saucepan, and stir well to combine them. For this preparation, we are using our homemade ketchup.
- Turn on the heat onto medium and heat the ingredients until they start boiling, and then, turn the heat down to low.
- Mix the starch with the water, add the mixture to the boiling ingredients and start stirring the immediately to obtain a properly thickened and lump free sauce.
