I tweaked this recipe a bit based on what was in my pantry (no paste-used sauce). I also added soy sauce (2T) and used the juice from a can of pineapples as part of the water. I also let this simmer for about 20 minutes before I added the cornstarch. My VERY picky 8 yr old (whom this was made for) thought it was better than the sweet and sour sauce from (insert fast food restaurant name here ):) so it was absolutely a success and will be made again. To reiterate another reviewer - cornstarch must be mixed with a little water/juice before adding to recipes. Also bring it to a full boil after adding to get it to thicken. Thank you!

Awesome sauce! I did as other reviewers suggested and used the pineapple juice (into which I mixed 3 heaping tablespoons of corn starch) and soy sauce. I simmered it for 20 minutes. My family loved it! A keeper for sure!Thank you

Terrific S&S sauce! I added some soy sauce for depth & saltiness and some chopped green onion and bell pepper and it turned out just as I like it(and my kids RAVED about it!). I was skeptical about using tomato paste because all other recipes I had seen used ketchup for the "red", but it was really very good. For those of you who worry about it being too tomatoey - it tastes just like really good Sweet & Sour from the Chinese restaurant. Thank you.
