  1. Had this with dinner last night and really enjoyed it. I've never tried tempeh before, and this was a good introduction. I did let it marinate quite a bit longer, mostly because I intended it for lunch, but forgot about it until dinner time. I thin sliced the tempeh, so it was about the size and thickness of a steak fry, then fried in canola as I'm out of grapeseed oil. My kids sort of liked this, but didn't finish the one slice I gave them, and hubby still isn't impressed much by soy anything, but I liked it. I didn't make the sauce, so can't rate it. I also didn't salt this when it came out of the skillet, as the long marinade time made it plenty salty for me. Thanks for sharing. Update: Reheated leftovers in the oven today and dipped in satay sauce... Phenom! I can see this being a good replacement for Thai style chicken dishes or anything with a peanut sauce.
