I have wanted to have a satay recipe on my site for a long time. But to be honest, I have never really eaten a satay I loved. So we decided to remedy that and create our own! This is that sauce. YUM. It is pretty hot (use less dried chillies should you prefer mild sauce!) a little bit sweet, as satay should be and when you combine it with the very delicious marinated beef, you really are on to something yum. You have to have it with the red onion or shallot and cucumber. Don't leave that bit out. Load up a mouthful....Now take a big good is it? Very good.

Serve satay sticks with the peanut sauce and garnish with the cucumber and red onion.


The sauce may take on the appearance of having split. This will vary depending on your choice of Peanut Butter. Cool the sauce down if this happens, pour off the oil and reblend. Good as new!
