"This came from Taste of Home's Quick Cooking and is much better than anything I've created on my own. The sauce is thick and gooy and goes well with so many things."

"Not quite the right color, but the taste is great if you increase the brown sugar a bit. Desperately needed this recipe when I found a recipe that called for sweet and sour sauce. This recipe saved the day. May decrease the cornstarch a bit...but it was a lifesaver!"
"Perfect! the only thing I did different was after it was thick, I tasted it and I added a touch more white wine vinager maybe a tsp or so. LOVED it and will make again! Thanks for sharing."
"Far more delicious than the ingredients make it seem like it will be. This is very very close to the sweet/sour sauce of a local restaurant. Love it! I made pan-fried tofu, recipe 271647, some seared pineapple chunks, and steamed broccoli. Fantastic!"
"Oh YUM!...Suzy,this is a great and very easy to put together, sweet and sour sauce, I used it for my brisket, and it turned out fantastic...I added some fresh minced garlic to the sauce, cause my DH and myself love garlic, and I doubled the recipe...I will be making this again...thanks for a super recipe! :-)"
"Just what I was looking for! Easy and quick and delicious! Thanks!"
"Great! Made this to go with some egg rolls. Delicious, and no HFCS or red food coloring. Tanks for sharing the recipe!"
"I would agree that this is the bestsweet and sour sauce. In fact those were the exact words when I recently used this recipe while entertaining. one of my guest said "this is the bestsweet and sour chicken I have ever had." I would highly recommend the bestsweet and sour sauce recipe."
"This sauce is super easy to make and very delicious! - Kids gave it a big thumbs up!"
"I have never tried to make homemade sweet and sour sauce, so I wasn't sure what to expect - but this was great! It was SUPER quick and easy, which I love, and tastes great too! I used on top of Crab Rangoon Dip #95823."
"Very good...we liked this better than any storebought brand! I too will cut back a little on the cornstarch next time. but this was easy and oh so good. Thanks for posting!"
"This sauce couldn't be easier or quicker to make, or any closer to take-out sauce. Thanks Suzy!"
"This was so good! I was craving sweet and sour chicken but wasn't sure if I could make sauce that tasted right. This was perfect! Thanks so much!"
"This was so good. I used about 2.5 tablespoons of corn starch. I think next time I will use about 2. I didn't stir it all the time so I had a little clumping at the bottom. I am thinking about making another batch of egg rolls just so I can have more of this sauce."
"This was a wonderful sauce! I added 1 tsp. of chili sauce and 3 cloves of minced garlic, cut the cornstarch down to 2 1/2 Tbsp. and it was perfect! I took chicken breasts, cut into bite size pieces, browned them, combined all the sauce ingredients, poured it over the chicken and let it thicken. Served over rice, it was GREAT! Thank you for a Keeper that goes into my Recipe Book!"
"I used this on my egg rolls last night and got rave reviews. They couldn't get enough. Thank you so much. But I do agree with other reviewer - a little less cornstarch. It really gelled up. But the taste was perfect."
"Outstanding! I prepared according to the instructions and thought when I put it in the pan it was too runny - however - a minute later it thickened right up and it was delicious. Thanks for the recipe!"
"Great tasting sauce. Next time I'll use less cornstarch as my was like gelatin once it cooled. I used the sauce in a sweet and sour chicken rice recipe and it was delicious."
"I chose to add this recipe to Recipe #170592. A great compliment to this recipe. Will be trying this recipe to other recipes I make."
"Good tasting and easy to make. As per another review, I too added some red food coloring at the end, just for appearance. I only used 3 drops though. Thanks for sharing this recipe, I needed it for my homemade egg rolls!"
"Great taste & texture & simple. I added 7 drops of red food coloring just for looks. Thanks!"
