Recipe Ingredients for Sweet and sour shrimp

4 tablespoons red wine vinegar
4 tablespoons orange juice
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoon ketchup
2/3 teaspoon cornstarch
1/3 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon vegetable oil
2 cup steamed broccoli
2 teaspoon soy sauce
1 1/2 shrimp , pre-cooked and frozen (2 dozen medium)
2 clove garlic
2 teaspoon grated fresh ginger (I only had powdered, but fresh is preferred.)

Recipe Directions for Sweet and sour shrimp

  1. In a medium bowl, combine vinegar, orange juice, sugar, ketchup, cornstarch, and salt with a whisk. Set aside.

  2. Defrost shrimp under cold water, sopping up any extra moisture with a paper towel. In a small bowl, mix with soy sauce. Set aside.

  3. In a large skillet or wok, heat 1/2 teaspoon of oil over medium-high heat. Add veggies and cook 1 or 2 minutes, until heated through.

  4. Move veggies to outside perimeter of skillet. Add remaining 1/2 teaspoon oil. Add garlic and ginger and cook for 30 seconds, until fragrant.

  5. Add shrimp to pan and cook another 30 seconds, until heated through

  6. Pour sweet and sour sauce to pan. Bring to a simmer and cook for 1 or 2 minutes, until sauce is thickened. Serve over brown rice.

  7. NOTE: If you don?t have leftovers lying around, grab a cup of your favorite vegetables (cut up), add them directly to the pan and cook until crisp-tender. (As per Cooks Illustrated, ?If using very tough vegetables, add to skillet with ˝ cup water, cover and steam over high heat for about 2 minutes; uncover.") Then follow the rest of the directions as-is.

  8. NOTE #2: You can use any kind of meat with this. If it?s not pre-cooked, sauté about 4 ounces (cut into small chunks) over high heat until browned. Then transfer to a clean bowl, and proceed to Step 3. Transfer back to pan in Step 5.
