How to Make Chinese Peanut Sauce


  1. Place peanut butter in a bowl. Add hot water and stir until wel mixed and smooth.
  2. Stir in remaining ingredients and mix well. Sauce will thicken as it cools. (It can get thicker than you think it will, so you want it a little on the thin side. If it is too thick, add a little hot water - too thin, add peanut butter.)
