Here it is.
INDONESIAN PEANUT SAUCE
Adapted from The TMF Cookbook
1 cup chunky peanut butter
½ cup sweet soy sauce (I use ABC brand)**
Juice of one lemon
¼ of medium yellow onion, sliced
Hot sauce to taste of your choice (I use Indonesian sambal bajak, can also use tabasco sauce)
Water as needed; start with 1 cup
Saute onion in water until soft. Add peanut butter, soy sauce and hot sauce with enough water to make a thick liquid. Cook over medium heat, adding water as sauce thickens. Just before turning off burner, add lemon juice. Serve over rice and vegetables.
*note: I have started experimenting with adding ginger and we like the taste; if you like garlic, you could add that, too.
**note#2: if you can't find the sweet soy sauce, you can use regular soy sauce and add brown sugar or molasses to sweeten it.
Other notes: to make it easier to measure, I usually just take a jar of peanut butter which is normally about 2 cups (16 oz). That doubles the recipe, but what's not to love about MORE PEANUT SAUCE?
I knew someone who used those dried, fried onions that come already packaged. She thought cooking up my own onion was too much work.
Because I don't eat meat, I serve this over veggies and rice. It's also good with sauteed meat on skewers.
I didn't create a pdf for this recipe. You can just copy and paste it into a file.
