Sweet and Sour Sauce Recipe

Sweet and Sour Sauce on the Arteflame Grill

Create a versatile and delicious Sweet and Sour Sauce on your Arteflame Grill, perfect for grilling chicken, pork, or vegetables. This sauce combines the tang of vinegar with the sweetness of sugar and the richness of fruit for a balanced flavor profile.


  • 1 cup pineapple juice (Pineapple slices / chunks optional)
  • ½ cup apple cider vinegar
  • ½ cup brown sugar, packed
  • ¼ cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • ¼ cup water


  1. Prepare the Ingredients:

    • Measure out all your ingredients. Dissolve the cornstarch in water to create a slurry. Set aside.
  2. Preheat the Arteflame Grill:

    • Set up your Arteflame Grill. Place a cast iron skillet or saucepan directly on the grill to heat up.
    • Optional: Grill the pineapple slices before adding them to the sauce for extra flavor.
  3. Combine the Ingredients:

    • In the heated skillet, combine pineapple juice, apple cider vinegar, brown sugar, ketchup, soy sauce, and garlic powder. Stir well to combine.
  4. Thicken the Sauce:

    • Bring the mixture to a simmer, stirring occasionally. Once it starts to simmer, slowly whisk in the cornstarch slurry. Continue to simmer and stir until the sauce thickens to your desired consistency, about 5-7 minutes.
  5. Final Adjustments:

    • Taste the sauce and adjust the seasoning if needed. If you prefer it sweeter, add a little more sugar; for more tang, add a bit more vinegar.
  6. Serve or Store:

    • Use the sauce immediately for grilling or allow it to cool and store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.

Grilling Tips:

  • For a smoky flavor, consider grilling some pineapple slices on the Arteflame Grill before juicing them for the sauce.
  • Keep an eye on the sauce as it simmers to prevent it from burning or sticking to the pan.
