sweet and sour sauce

What could be easier to make, with a simply recipe for a favorite dish.

(from a Kitchen Aid mixer cook book)

in a sauce pan, add,

1/3 cup juice, pineapple or other sweet juice

1/3 cup vinegar, plain white works good, or apple cider etc.

1/3 cup catsup (tomato)

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (I use slivered garlic to taste)

bring to a boil and…

in a small bowl or mug, a 1/3 cup cold water and  mix into a paste 2 tablespoons corn starch

add the cornstarch paste to the pan cook until thick and translucent.

Aa you can see this is just a basic recipe, add what you like kick it up with some heat (hot pepper flakes etc.

that was just the sauce, we are not done yet !

the rice is easy 5-10-15 !

boil rice in double amount of water/rice with a bit of salt. (plain white rice, other varieties may require different timings)

BOIL : uncovered for 5 MINUTES

SIMMER : covered for 10 MINUTES

REST: covered for 15 MINUTES

sounds like a long time, but it’s a fool proof method, other using a stepped power level method in a microwave.
