Intresting sauce, but a good change of pace. I enjoyed it ontop of some rice. However, next time, I might add a TBS of sugar. This I will keep to use again

I really thought the ingredients looked pretty strange, but I had all of them on hand so I decided to go for it. The sauce turned out really good! The peanut butter gave it a very distinct taste and a great texture. I would make this again.

this is an interesting combination of ingredients. the peanut butter flavor is distinct. i added 2 pinches of cayenne pepper which kind of blended the flavors together a bit more, and served this over perciatelli.
