I'm not sure if I used the right kind of pepper sauce, but I really enjoyed the results (so, I guess it was the right one, regardless :) ). I used some Turkish sauce that also contained ground nuts and tomato paste. This was super-speedy and very delicious. It made good leftovers, too. Thanks for posting!
