Sweet-and-Sour Sausage Recipe

Sweet-and-Sour Sausage Recipe

This main dish is a nice change of pace from traditional sweet-and-sour meatballs. It's much quicker to make, too. For variety, I like to substitute a different kind of sausage, like spicy Italian.—Nova MacIsaac, Souris, Prince Edward Island
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 1 package (12 ounces) uncooked sausage links
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup vinegar
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1 can (8 ounces) crushed pineapple, drained
  • Hot cooked rice


  • 1. In a large skillet, cook sausage until a thermometer reads 160° drain. When cool enough to handle, cut into bite-size pieces; set aside.
  • 2. Combine the sugar, cornstarch, water, vinegar and ketchup; add to skillet. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cook for 2 minutes or until thickened. Add pineapple and sausage; heat through. Serve with rice. Yield: 4 servings.

"I think it will be better if you let the cornstarch dissolve first in water before you put the other ingredients. Because when I follow the Step 2, the cornstarch become solid when I mix it to sugar."

"A very good recipe, my family really enjoyed it. I added 1/2 bellpepper, 1/2 onion and 1 carrot all cut into 1" cubes. Next time I prepare this, I plan to use chunk pineapple and replace 1/2 the water with the juice from the can.

Will definately make again.
