    Not bad. One of the better peanut sauce recipes I've tried to make at home. I added some ginger, garlic, and lemongrass to round out the flavors and cut down on the sugar (only put about a couple of pinches). My only concern is that I wish it was a bit thicker.

    Love this recipe. I make it all the time. Add some hot chili oil or siracha if you want a little kick to it.

    Better than a store-bought sauce! I used low-sodium soy sauce; the red curry I used is spicier than the one in the can. But other than that spite it’s perfect! delicious!

    This was a great peanut sauce.!! It makes quite a bit, luckily hubby loved it so much he’s to use on other meals like chicken, salad or potstickers!

    Thank you!! This is amazing! I paired it with brown rice mixed with sautéed purple cabbage, shredded carrots and garlic with a vegan patty on top! #instantHIT

    This is very similar to a sauce I make regularly from the late, great Urban Peasant (James Barber). His sauce has a few more ingredients, though. One is some chopped ginger, lemon juice, and chopped garlic. The rest is pretty much the same as this recipe (except it's brown sugar rather than white sugar). I use one of those mini-mixers to mix it all together and keep it in the fridge. I use it on steamed fish or vegetables, on noodles, on stir fried chicken or pork, or just as a condiment or dipping sauce.
