Super basic Sweet and Sour sauce

1/2 c. packed brown sugar
1 tbsp. cornstarch
1 (13 1/4 oz.) can pineapple chunks
1/3 c. white vinegar
1 tbsp. soy sauce


Mix brown sugar and cornstarch in skillet.
Stir in pineapple with juice, vinegar and soy sauce.
Heat to boiling, stirring constantly; reduce heat.
Simmer a while.

I poured the sauce over frozen meatballs in the crockpot and cooked for a few hours then served it over rice.

This sauce is really easy and pretty basic. Feel free to add more things for flavour. Next time I might add some hot chilli paste to give it more flavour and zing.
