This is a great peanut sauce! We used a reduced fat coconut milk to cut back on the calories a bit. We basted a little on our thai beef and on our chicken satays during the last couple minutes of cooking. Might add a little more jalapeno next time. Yummy!!!

This was very interesting, to me, to make. First, I had no Hoisin sauce so made Recipe #92803 by Breez, and believe me it was a little bit of work to make Zaar change a 2-cup recipe to 1/16th cup. Then I made Recipe #187372 by Chef PotPie and cut it down to 3/4 up, as I had another recipe that needed just a little coconut milk. Other than those 2 ingredients, I was good to go! I am so glad that this recipe did not call for too much pepper. I had a Thai dish that blew the top of my head off! This was just enough to say, "whoa", this is great!" Will I have this again? You bet! Thnx for sharing your recipe, Dr. J. Made for ZWT6.

I had a rating panel review this recipe as I am not a fan of peanut butter. The 'panel' loved it. I served it with Recipe #301312. Made for ZWT5
