Review This Recipe
My husband does not care for peanut butter in any southeast asian recipe I have tried. He prefers some ground peanuts in it, if anything. I don't think this sauce is bad at all, but he is from Cambodia originally and his palate is more sensitive to the "authenticity" of the flavors.
You could make your own fresh peanut butter by grinding roasted peanuts, thus eliminating a lot of added sugar and oils, which could make the taste more authentic. I think you can buy peanut butter that is made like this, too. I plan to try that next time!
