Easy Peanut Sauce

I recently had 4 of my very dear friends over for dinner and served them spring rolls with peanut sauce as an appetizer.

The 5 of us have friendships that go back a very long time so I knew that they would definitely speak up if they didn’t like something.

As it turned out they absolutely loved this peanut sauce and they asked me to be sure and post it so they can get the recipe.

This can be used as a dipping sauce for spring rolls, or any type of meat. 

What a super easy appetizer idea….pieces of any type of cooked meat along with this peanut dipping sauce…yum!

It can also be used as a hot or cold sauce to mix with noodles, a marinade for meat, a cooking sauce with vegetables, or mixed in with cooked rice.

You’ll love the flavor of this peanut sauce.

This post is dedicated to Friendship!  (Tricia, Phyllis, Erin and Karan…love you guys!) 

Let’s check out the ingredients:

Here’s how to make it.

Cut a piece off of the fresh ginger root that is about the size of a sugar cube. 

Then cut off the skin….

….and dice it as small as possible.  You may need to cut more ginger root if it turns out that the piece you diced is less than a teaspoon.

Add the diced pieces of ginger root to a medium size bowl.

Next add the rice vinegar….

….the sugar…

….the peanut butter….

…and the hoisin sauce.

Then add the red pepper flakes…

….the soy sauce…

…the water…

…and the sesame seed oil.

Next….

…whisk away at all of the ingredients.

Although this sauce can be served chilled, the flavors tend to really stand out if served at room temperature.

Serve as a dipping sauce for spring rolls or any type of meat.

This sauce is also delicious when used as a marinade for meat, a hot or cold sauce mixed with noodles, as a cooking sauce with vegetables and meat, or served over rice.

Super yum.

Enjoy!

A must try.

    Glad to pop in and see this. I love peanut sauce but usually just make it when I make chicken satay. However, now that I see this, it should be a condiment that I keep on hand. It can be used for quite a number of things, not just for satay! Thanks for sharing this an inspiring me to keep this sauce handy-yum!
