Try this Alison Holst recipe: it's yummy as a marinade or dipping sauce.

Indonesian Dipping Sauce

2 cloves garlic chopped
2 tsp grated root ginger
2 TBSP dark soya sauce
2 TBSP Lemon juice
1 TBSP oil
3-4 drops hot pepper sauce
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 TBSP peanut butter
1/4 cup water

Combine ingredients in small pan and heat, (or microwave in a pyrex jug,) stirring until smooth and thickened.
Sauce can be diluted with extra water if it is too thick.
or check out the lefthand message board & under keyword put peanut sauce. Under date posted put last year.

I use this one when I do chicken kebabs - really quick and easy; 2 t Vegetable oil, 1 Spring Onion, 1 Garlic clove, 1/3 Cup Peanut Butter (smooth), 3/4 Cup Coconut Milk, 2 teaspoons Soy Sauce. Heat the oil in a pan over a moderate heat. Add the thinly sliced spring onion and crushed garlic. Stir for 1 minute until fragrant. Add the remaining ingredients and cook, stirring continuously, until smooth and heated through.

I love all satay sauces but this is my favourite.
Quick Peanut Sauce.
3T unsweetened peanut butter
2T rice wine vinegar
1T chpd coriander - I used Continental in a jar, can only get it from New World as far as I know.Use the plain one, not one with garlic, ginger etc. I add 2T of the jarred coriander.
1 plump clove garlic
2t soy sauce or to taste
1t light brown sugar
1/2t chilli oil, sriracha or chilli flakes to taste
Combine all ingred except the salt, adding 2-4T warm water to make it the consistency you wish.Add 1/4t salt and then taste

1 onion chopped
1 cup crunchy peanut butter
2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 1/2 cups of water
a teaspoon of grated ginger

Put all ingredients in pot and let it all simmer away til it thickens.YUM YUM and from the Family Heart book.

I always taste along the way and usually add more sugar and soy sauce to get it to my liking.
