I think this tasted great yes too much vinegar but l just added more sugar so balanced it out. I made sauce first then removed from pan. I had it with chicken breast peppers shallots small amount of fresh ginger lots of garlic granules the popped in the sauce heated through three in the spring onions at end . It tasted just like a take away but was so much better . I dreamed about the left overs and had it for breakfast oops thumbs up from me!

cook off sugar in vinegar first and then add ketchup but it is 3 parts sugar to 1 part vinegar, then add the pineapple juice to the sauce but cook pineapple in frying pan and then add. i have been making a sauce very similar to this for about 7 years.

Too much vinegar, I'd suggest 1oz vinegar and 3oz sugar.
