Sweet 'n Sour Sauces

Collection of sweet and sour sauce recipesjump to the recipes

Sweet and sour sauce is a common condiment in Asian recipes. It's used as a cooking sauce in popular dishes like sweet and sour pork, but it's also for dipping foods in such as deep-fried shrimp or chicken, or egg rolls.

You can purchase it in jars at the grocery store but they contain all sorts of unnecessary artificial ingredients. It's actually incredibly easy to make it yourself at home. The basic formula contains something sweet and something pungent, usually sugar and vinegar, but there are a whole range of options you can use. You'll find lots of varieties in our recipe collection that use ingredients like orange juice, fruit preserves, crushed pineapple, and even horseradish sauce.

We even have a copycat version of McDonald's sweet and sour sauce that they famously offer with their Chicken McNuggets.
