Sweet and sour sauce

Wow! Sweet and Sour Sauce

Reid loves this and I figure out a way to make it in Ghana - most ingredients are easy to find - especially nice fresh pineapple and juice. I made a 1/4 recipe to test it out and it served us both with some leftovers. I simmered a little cooked (tough) chicken in the sauce for 10 minutes and it was nice and tender.

"This is a quick sweet-and-sour sauce you can serve over meat, vegetables, rice, pasta, or any combination thereof!"
2 cups water
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 cup ketchup
1 (8 ounce) can pineapple tidbits,
undrained (I used fresh pineapple and juice)
2/3 cup distilled white vinegar
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/2 tablespoon steak sauce
1/2 tablespoon cayenne pepper hot
sauce (I left this out)
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1.Stir water, sugar, ketchup, pineapple, vinegar, red pepper flakes, soy sauce, steak sauce, and hot sauce together in a saucepan over medium heat. Remove 1/2 cup of the sauce to a small bowl; whisk cornstarch into the sauce in the bowl. Bring the sauce in the saucepan to a boil, stir the sauce with the cornstarch into the boiling sauce. Cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly before using.
