This turned out to be a decent meal, although the sauce was a bit too rich for me. I would cut down on the amount of peanut butter. Also, I'd increase the cooking time to at least 4 hours on high. I did 6 hours on low and the onions were still crunchy, which ruined the texture of the dish. Otherwise, it's a good recipe, especially with some added palm sugar.

  2. Add peas and wine vinegar. Cover and continue cooking on low for 10 more minutes**. Serve with some chives and peanuts on top.
  3. **Personally, I don't continue cooking. I just add the white wine vinegar, mix and serve.
