Directions

  1. In a medium skillet combine the vinegar and sugar and bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Add pineapple juice concentrate, monosodium glutamate, ketchup, soy sauce, seasoning salt and garlic powder and bring to a boil. Stir until well blended. Add red food coloring.
  2. Meanwhile, in a cup mix together water and cornstarch until fully dissolved. While sauce is boiling, add cornstarch mixture slowly, stirring continuously until the mixture thickens slightly. Do not add mixture all at once as the sauce could get too thick. Use only enough cornstarch to thicken to your desired consistency. When desired consistency is reached, voila! The sauce is ready!

The recipe would be fine without the dreaded MSG, and the red food coloring.

I adore this recipe! I use it for sweet and sour chicken at least once every two weeks. My husband and I are addicted to it! :) I don't add the msg or food coloring and the color is fine with me, but if I were serving it to company I would probably add the color just to make it brighter. Thanks so much for this recipe!

I tried this sauce tonight for use in my new restaurant. It was exactly what I was looking for and tasted GREAT! I omitted the MSG and food coloring. I reduced the vinegar by a 1/4 cup and used salt sparingly. A must have recipe for any sweet & sour dish.
