Sweet and Sour Shrimp

If you're a fan of Americanized Oriental cuisine, then you know there is a dish called "sweet and sour chicken balls". While there are different ways of doing any sweet and sour dishes, this sweet and sour shrimp dish isn't too difficult and is pretty tasty.

  • 1 - 6 Oz. Pkg. pea pods

  • 1 - 13 Oz. can pineapple chunks or tidbits (drain and reserve juice)

  • 2 Tbsp. cornstarch

  • 3 Tbsp. sugar

  • 1 Chicken bouillon cube

  • 1/2 Cup reserved pineapple juice

  • 2 Tsp. soy sauce

  • 1/2 Tsp. ground ginger

  • 2 4 & 1/2 Oz. cans shrimp (rinsed and drained)

  • 2 Tbsp. cider vinegar

Place pea pods and drained pineapple in crock Pot. In a small saucepan, stir together cornstarch and sugar. Dissolve bouillon cube in boiling water and add with juice, soy sauce and ginger to saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring, and cook sauce for about 1 minute or until thickened and transparent. Gently blend sauce into pea pods and pineapple. Cover and cook on LOW setting for 4 to 6 hours.

Before serving, add shrimp and vinegar, stirring carefully to avoid breaking up shrimp. Serve over hot rice.
