My husband and I used to live in Indonesia and loved the peanut sauce there. This recipe is the most authentic one I've found. I used natural peanut butter and it was delicious. I substituted regular soy sauce for the tamari and left out the basil. It was very easy to make and delicious reheated. I will make this on a regular basis.

This is the best sauce. I used a 1/2 tsp powdered ginger and regular soy sauce because I did not have fresh ginger or tamari sauce. I also used only a 1/4 of a pepper to reduce the heat for my kids. If it seems too spicy after that just add a little more honey! I also but mine in the blender after it was all combined so that it was completly smooth and then finished heating. My family wanted more, we will be having it again very soon. Tastes like the restaurant. VEy good over chicken, rice and veggies.

This is a great recipe. I used 1 can of coconut milk instead of the water and Hunan Red Chili sauce instead of the jalapeno. It was delicious. Better than any Thai restaurant I have eaten at. Thanks for the great recipe.
