Thai Peanut Butter Sauce for Stir-fry

The peanut butter sauce is really what makes this meal. Stir fry is just stir fry until you put a little zing into it, right? So go on, get out your skillet or wok and start sauteing those veggies! Add your choice of meat and just when it looks like any old stir fry - add the sauce. Bam! You have yourself a mouthwatering Thai version of that any-old-day meal. Or, just use it as a dipping sauce with chicken or veggies. Enjoy!

Thai Peanut Butter Sauce
  • 1 cup peanut butter (I use reduced fat creamy, I'm sure whatever would work)
  • 3/4 cup coconut milk (use the rest to make dessert: sweet sticky rice with mango!)
  • 3 T lemon juice
  • 4 T soy sauce or tamari
  • 3 T garlic (I just use the minced stuff in the jar)
  • Ginger to taste (make sure this is the last ingredient you add)
--Combine all ingredients (except ginger) into a small bowl, stirring until smooth.
--Once smooth, start adding the ginger, tasting every now and again until it suites your taste!

This is what it should look like in the bowl

And this is about when your moth starts to water and you're praying the noodles or rice are close to being done!
