Todd's Famous Thai Peanut Sauce

Rated as 4.13 out of 5 Stars

"This is my hub's famous peanut sauce he makes for us. The key to this recipe is that it uses whole peanuts instead of peanut butter. It makes a world of difference in taste and texture."

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Pour the peanuts onto a dry baking sheet in a single layer, and break the whole nuts apart into halves. Toast the peanuts until they are fragrant and slightly darker in color, 7 to 10 minutes, watching carefully so they don't burn.
  3. Remove peanuts from the oven, let cool, and place in the work bowl of a food processor. Pulse 2 or 3 times to chop them finely, then add the canola oil, toasted sesame oil, hot chili oil, soy sauce, lime juice, sugar, and chili garlic sauce. Process until the mixture is a fine paste with a little texture of chopped peanuts, not a totally smooth paste. The sauce should look a little grainy.

Made this last night to serve with a chicken/vegie and pancit noodle stir fry. I was lazy and used peanut butter which eliminated the need for the sugar and oil. I thinned the mixture out with ...

Used this in the filling for Thai Chicken Spring Rolls (AR recipe) and also served on the side as a dipping sauce. This is just really good! Definitely will be making again

Great sauce! You can use this as a sauce for a Thai style pasta, but you probably want to add about 1/2 cup chicken/vegetable broth to it when it's in the food processor so it will distribute be...

This is the best Thia Peanut Sauce I have found. It tastes just like what is served in Thia restaurants with the fresh rolls. Thanks for sharing!

Very tasty! I am really happy that it didn't use peanut butter! It was more like REAL thai peanut sauce!

This recipe is delicious! I will certainly make it again.
