It is excellent but, instead of peanut butter, please use roasted peanuts and crush them in a mortar with a pestle or, in a pinch, a plastic bag with the side of a wine bottle. It really makes a big difference in authenticity!
The real deal - Thank you!!! Its just like you'd get in a good Indonesian restaurant! I had no food processor so I chopped the garlic, ginger and chilli finely and mashed it in a bowl with the peanut butter before transferring to a large saucepan and adding the coconut milk. Delicious.
Thanks so much, Brian! I thought this was a great, quick peanut sauce. My family said it tasted just like what we used to eat when we lived on Java. I used 5 Tablespoons of Kecap Manis instead of the soy sauce and molasses and I had to let my sauce cook for 50 minutes to thicken up. This is my new quick sate sauce. Love it!
yumm! this was great!
Very good. Used 3 cups of coconut milk cause that's what I had. In the beginning it was a bit thin and I was glad I had only the 3 cups. But then-after cooking it was thick and nice. Next time I'll be sure to have the stated amount coconut milk as I think that would be better. The taste was wonderful, just the right "zing". Will surely make it again. Thanks for posting.
