    Chefs Tips

    This sauce should be made with homemade Peanut Butter, but to be honest it is just easier to use a Jar.

    This recipe often calls for smooth Peanut Butter, but I like and I have used Crunchy Peanut Butter in this Satay sauce recipe.

    In this recipe I have used Crunchy Peanut Butter but you can use Smooth or even make your own. Peanut Butter 💬
