This is really an easy to prepare sauce that is ideal for dips or even poured on fried meat or seafood. You are only limited by your imagination!
1 cup water
1/4 cup tomato sauce
3 tablespoons vinegar
4 tablespoons brown sugar firmly packed (you can add more if you want it to be on the sweet side)
2 heaping tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 cup pineapple juice
In a saucepan, dissolve cornstarch in pineapple juice.
Add the remaining ingredients and stir until well-mixed.
Continuously stir while cooking over medium heat. Once the sauce reaches boiling point, lower the heat and let simmer for 5 minutes.
a) Serve on its own as a dipping sauce for fried foods.
b) Fry desired meat or seafood. Sauté sliced carrots, pineapple tidbits, onions and celery. Add sauce. Cook for another 2 minutes and immediately pour on fried meat or seafood. Best served with steamed rice.
