Most peanut sauce is does not have enough peanut for me, thus this creation. It isn't often friends will eat a sauce with a spoon, but there is never any of this left over.

Very good recipe. The only suggestion that I have is that the vinegar is very strong when you first mix it. If you can make it the day before and let it mellow, use all of the vinegar, but if you need to use it right away, I would cut down on the amount of vinegar. Read More

I tried to use this recipe as a dipping sauce seeing as so many reviews said you could eat it with a spoon and found that the garlic ginger and cayenne really overpowered the peanut flavor. Would probably be good to marinate and cook with but wasn't so great as a straight dipping sauce. Read More

There are no words for how many times I've tried to make my own version of this and failed miserably. Okay, we can start with "too salty" and "just plain wrong", but after that it's just a mess of tears and failure. THIS RECIPE IS PERFECT. If I had to say that there's anything wrong with it, it's that it's so good, I literally want to put it on everything. In addition to traditional chicken satay, I thin it with a little oil for salad dressing, use it as a dip for chicken nuggets, vegetables, crackers, bread, fingers, the palm of my hand, etc.... Quick lunch? Pour this bad boy sauce into a bowl of cooked spaghetti noodles. Oh yeah, I've done it. And I'll do it again, too. Read More

Thanks for the review from RobertaB. She pointed out I forgot a critical ingredient when I posted the recipe to all recipes. The recipe should include 3 TBS of soy sauce I have contacted AllRecipes to have the recipe corrected. I'm not sure how I missed adding this before posting. Thanks for enjoying the recipe. Read More

This is a great start but I felt like it needed something. I added 3T of Soy Sauce, a handful of chopped cilantro and substituted water for the olive oil. Served it tossed with whole wheat noodles and topped with sauteed broccoli, red peppers and onion. Excellent! Read More

I will admit - my husband wanted to eat this with a spoon! When I first tasted it I wasn't all that impressed but when I started eating it with the chicken satay I made - YUM!! Next time I will make it a bit spicier - was a little mellow with the red pepper because of the kids they didn't really like it so more of a kick it will have next time. Thank you for this great sauce it was awesome! Thrilled I could be the first to review it! Read More

This was WAY easy and delicious! I just added some fresh squeezed lime just because I had some on hand. It really brought out the tangy-ness of the ginger. Read More

YUM! I served this to go over the Vietnamese Meatballs. It was a great combination. I wanted a bit more kick to the sauce so I added a bit of dried basil & some curry spice. I also heated the sauce before serving over the meatballs. This one's a keeper! Read More

Simple and Tasty! I have tried a few recipes and bottles for this and this is by far the best. Try this for a quick dinner. Boil linguini as directed during the last two minutes if cook time add shredded carrots and julienned pea pods strain and pour peanut sauce over the top. Add chopped peanuts. YUM! Read More
