Sweet and Sour Shrimp

This recipe always shocks people when they find out what ingredients are used to make it. The shrimp can be replaced by meatballs, chicken, tofu or anything you like.

First you mix 1 cup of ginger ale and 1 cup of ketchup...that's read correctly, ginger ale and ketchup. You bring it to a boil, let simmer for 20 minutes and add your vegetables that take longer to cook like cauliflower or carrots. If you are using meatballs, add them early enough to allow time to cook. If you use shrimp, only add them towards the end as to not over cook them. We served it over rice.

We always wait until after the meal to tell people what the sauce is made with. So far everyone has loved this recipe. It's actually fun to see people’s reaction to this meal.
