Asian Peanut Sauce

This sauce is great! I have used it many times but the one that is the favorite by far is with chucks of sauteed pork, zucchini,bok choi and mushrooms over jasmine rice!! YUM



This is a great recipe. One of the other reviewers suggested adding chili oil. What a great idea. I will definitely try that next time I make this recipe!

Very Good and Very Versatile

I used this with grilled chicken wings for a party. It was very good, others also used it for dip with their raw vegetables. Will make again!

Asian Peanut Sauce

When I made this sauce I found it to be a little bland and runny. I have had peanut noodles other times and didn't like this version quite as much.

THis is such a great recipe. I love serving it with homemade spring rolls. I add a little chile oil- for hotness and spice.
