Sweet and Sour Sauce - Philippine Style

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by George Clement

Simple and easy to make. It’s a recipe used by my Filipino wife’s family for many years. You don’t have to go out and buy anything special for this sauce, you’ll have the ingredients on hand. We use it mostly for a lumpia dip but it’s also a great dip for chicken nuggets, pork, meatballs, etc.

Loved it. I added more crushed red pepper flakes to suit our taste. Will make this again for sure. Thanks.
