  • Bring coconut milk to a simmer in a small saucepan over medium heat; pour over into peanut butter mixture. Whisk until smooth.

  • Transfer to a serving bowl and garnish with chopped red pepper, cilantro, and peanuts.

Cook's Notes:

If you use a "name-brand" type of peanut butter, you should adjust the amount of sugar you add to the sauce.

Serve this with Beef Satay. The sauce can be made ahead of time. Thin with hot water, if needed.
