Hawaiian Hot Dog Heaven

Ok so the official name is Sweet-and-Sour Hot Dog Stir Fry, but I like my name better.
This is a made-from-scratch recipe from "Family Feasts for $75 a Week"
You will need:
6 hot dogs (can substitute chicken breast cubes)
1 can mandarin oranges
1 can pineapple chunks
1 red pepper, chopped
Sauce ingredients:
juice from the two fruit cans
2-3 T corn starch
1/4 c brown sugar
1/4 c vinegar
Saute the hot dogs (cut into "coins") in 1 T sesame oil. Meanwhile, whisk together sauce ingredients. Pour sauce over hot dogs and stir until it thickens. Add pineapple and red pepper and simmer 5 min. Just before serving, gently stir in oranges.
This one was good, but not the best thing I've ever tasted. It was nice to try something different, and it's very economical!
