natural peanut butter
distilled white vinegar
ground cayenne pepper
This was so fast and delicious. I substituted honey for the molasses, because I didn't have any molasses. It didn't seem as delicate as indicated regarding heat. I halved the recipe, and still had enough left over to keep in the fridge for 3 days, served it with lo mein, carrots, spinach and dry scallops, after doing the initial stir frying in peanut oil. One of the quickest, most versatile recipies I've ever used.
I've also served it as sauce for salmon: fabulous!
I really liked this, however, my stepdaughter would not even touch it and my husband found it too vinegary. Perhaps I will try again and take a note from other reviewers and reduce the vinegar.
perfectly easy. perfectly balanced. yeah, you could add this, that and the other to taste. however, it really is perfect as is. well, i did do something slightly different. i did half molasses, half brown sugar (the splenda brown sugar stuff) and it was juuust right. really, really yummy.
I was looking for a simple peanut sauce for satays - for a wedding we're helping with last weekend. I found it, and I love it!!! Thanks. I generally made as directed, halving the cayenne and adding 2t crushed ginger and 2t crushed garlic. I used the full amount of vinegar and loved it, as did all the guests. I love vinegar in general, but I got the impression everyone else did too, so I'm not sure what to say about some of the other reviews. Maybe know your own vinegar preferences, and start with half and adjust to your personal taste I guess.
I substituted soy sauce for tamari and honey for molasses...man are there some odd ingredients in this - super sweet, super salty, super spicy and super sour but the taste is unbelievably good. I made the breaded, fried and softly spiced tofu from this site and it needed something just right to go with it and this was it! Thanks for a super quick, easy and delicious recipe Laura! Will DEFINATELY make again soon!
Excellent. After lunch at a Thai cafe, we were craving more peanut sauce! I used brown sugar, and rice wine vinegar, and black pepper, since I didn't have the exact ingriedients. We ate it over brown rice, broc, tofu, onions and garlic. Very good.
This is a super easy recipe and basically no flaw. I give it a 5* for that reason alone. I did use soy sauce instead of tamari, and added 1t ginger paste, 3 finely diced green onions with tops, 1t minced garlic and 1/4 cup finely diced red bell pepper. You wouldn't have to add it but I always change recipes up. lol I poured it over bow tie pasta. Next I will try lightly sauted vegies.
This sauce is perfect! Even my "picky eater" took his requisite "one bite" and then finished the entire plate of food with this sauce on it. Very easily made too. Love it!
