Directions

  • Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the spaghetti, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.

  • Meanwhile, whisk the cornstarch into the vegetable broth until dissolved. Whisk in the peanut butter, soy sauce, honey, brown sugar, sesame oil, ground ginger, and red pepper. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until thickened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the sake and keep warm.

  • Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in the garlic and onion; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the broccoli, carrots, red bell pepper, and sugar snap peas. Reduce heat, cover, and steam until the vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes. Toss the vegetables with the peanut sauce and pasta to serve.

I really didn't care for this too much -- way too sweet and I didn't even add the brown sugar. To be fair I didn't have any sake so maybe that would have made a difference. Sorry!

This recipe is quite delicious as is. I made this for the first time tonight for 4 people and doubled the recipe. We had at least 2-3 servings of leftovers! EVERYONE enjoyed it even the finicky eaters!! I am not a fan of hot spicy food so I used only half the amount of the ground red pepper but next time I will use the full amount. For more of an Asian taste I would suggest substituting green onion in place of the regular onion that the recipe calls for and add crushed peanuts as a finishing touch! Otherwise this recipe is AWESOME and I will definitely make again in the near future!!!! The peanut sauce is PERFECT as is. It's smooth thick and creamy and makes the dish quite filling.

Super tasty! If you like it saucy like me add less noodles! Used whole wheat pasta as well could not even taste the difference. I doubled the recipe and added little more peanut butter than it called for and doubled the red pepper flakes we love it spicy and sweet! If you like less sweet add less brown sugar and honey than what it calls for. I added 3 thin sliced chix breast as well. Cooked everything in my well seasoned wok turned out perfect. Cooked Chicken before the veg's and cooked everything in peanut oil not veg oil. Did not add the Sake but added a couple of tbs of rice wine vinegar to counter the sweetness of honey and brown sugar.

I made this last night for dinner and it turned out wonderfully! I omitted the honey and used wine instead of saki. To save time - and a pot - I microwaved the sauce for about two minutes to thicken and cook. This was exactly what I was in the mood for. A nice salty/sweet flavour and the sauce sticks well to the noodles. I added chicken to mine as well and the flavours all melding beautifully. Love this and will definitely make again.

If you like Thai peanut anything look no further. This sauce is the bomb. Great over noodles or rice. Add chicken or shrimp if that's your thing. I left the red pepper out of the sauce and threw in chopped habeneros jalapenos and chiles from our garden (two each) with the stir fry. Perfect heat. Makes you sweat but doesn't burn as long as you core the peppers (no seeds or pulp from the center). The sauce is the winning part. No need for the Sake if you don't have it around.

Great taste! Based on other comments I started out with only 1 Tbs of honey and 1 Tbs of brown sugar. Very happy with the result. Also didn't have the sake but I everyone loved the flavor without this addition. I will definitely make this again. Thank you cooking mama.

I looooooove this recipe though since I use allll natural ingrediants (meaning I have to chop everything) it takes me a good hour and a half to two hours to make...also because I'm pretty slow still.:-) Per other reviews I omitted the honey and I have no idea where to get sake in Mexico so I don't add that either. My American and Canadian friends love it my Mexican friends aren't quite as impressed...spicy and sweet I don't think goes well with the Mexican pallet...they're more into spicy and salty or spicy and tart. Anyway this is my absolute favorite thing to make when I have the time.

Very very good! I suggest that you guys forget the spaghetti.I used fresh udon noodles instead so it tasted more authentic. Also I increased the ginger to 1.5 tbsp and omitted the broccoli. The dish was very very GOOD!!!!!

Love the concept and as written (minus the sake) was good; however it was a little on the sweet side for me and not that spicy. So next time I'll play around with those aspects and get a 5 star recipe out of it! On the bright side my 5 yr old did actually willingly eat a few bites without complaint!
