Peanut Sauce

Peanut Sauce

Peanut sauce (also called satay sauce) is originally an oriental sauce. It is made from ground peanuts, but peanut butter can serve very well as a substitute. The sauce was originally intended as a sauce for satay (grilled meat on skewers). Since peanut sauce is very well liked, it started to be very common to dress any meat (steak, pork or chicken). But also on French fries, especially if you combine the peanut sauce with mayo or garlic sauce you then have the popular "pataat oorlog" (potato war). read more

Ingredients

Peanut Sauce

  • 2 large onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup water
  • 1cup peanuts
  • The fried onions
  • 1 or 2 cloves of garlic
  • 3 Tbs. soy sauce
  • 2 Tbs. brown sugar
  • Juice of two limes or an equivalent amount of tamarind juice, about 2 Tbs
  • 1 raw onion, finely minced
  • 1 tsp. Tabasco sauce

Directions

Heat three cups oil in heavy skillet, and then fry until crisp:

  • 2 large onions, thinly sliced

Drain the onions well on absorbent paper. Place in the container of an electric blender:

  • 1 cup water
  • 1cup peanuts
  • the fried onions
  • 1 or 2 cloves of garlic
  • 3 Tbs. soy sauce
  • 2 Tbs. brown sugar
  • Juice of two limes or an equivalent amount of tamarind juice, about 2 Tbs.

Blend thoroughly. The sauce will always be slightly textured and rather thick. Pour it into a saucepan and bring to a boil over low heat. If it seems too thick, add water, a few tablespoonfuls at a time, stirring well after each addition. If oil appears on the surface, stir in a few tablespoonfuls of milk. Remove sauce from the fire and add immediately:

  • 1 raw onion, finely minced
  • 1 tsp. Tabasco sauce

Indonesian cooks add trassi, a shrimp paste to their peanut sauce. Anchovy paste may be substituted, but only as much as adheres to the tip of a knife.

A little bit goes a long way!
