Sweet & Sour Sauce

If I had to pick out ONE meal in my childhood that made my heart beat, it was my dad’s Sweet & Sour Chicken Balls. I honestly had dreams about them but I never made them for myself because they seemed like a lot of work (needed a deep fryer and I had to actually cut meat with my bare hands).

It wasn’t until years later, my mom suggested I make the sauce for a meal–she said it was probably what I loved most about that meal. And that the recipe actually came from my mom’s mom.

And of course she was right.

What you’ll need:

  • 1/3 cup vinegar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 4 tbsp. ketchup
  • 2 tbsp. cornstarch
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tbsp. soy sauce

Mix all ingredients in a medium sized pot over medium heat until boiling. Then turn down heat to simmer while it thickens.

This time we did it with classic meatballs, got the recipe from the John Wayne Way to Grill cook book.
