This Thai Peanut Sauce is a versatile sauce for any Asian inspired dish!
I can’t rave enough about this sauce. I’ve made it many times before now and it has become a staple in our family’s meals. So far I’ve used it:
- As a simple stir fry sauce with noodles and vegetables.
- Used it in hamburgers (1 pound beef, 1/4 cup quick oats, 3 tablespoons Thai Peanut Sauce), pan sear until cooked.
- Made the same way as the hamburgers and make oven baked meatballs to pair with stir fry veggies.
- Drizzled over a bed of lettuce and vegetables.
You really can’t go wrong.
I’ve made it mild in spice so that our 1 year old can eat it…and he downs it! But, you can modify the recipe by adding more red curry paste or even crushed red pepper flakes. I haven’t done it yet, but you could also make it super spicy by using the Peanut Butter & Co The Heat Is On peanut butter. That stuff makes my eyes water, but my husband LOVES it!
Lastly, store the sauce in your fridge for a month. Makes for some excellent and easy meals!

I love how versatile this sauce is!
i could eat this by the spoonful..yum!!!
We are going to try it tonight with grilled chicken skewers and rice noodles. Can’t wait! And i’ll be making it mild too; my husband LOVES spice, but i’m a total wimp 🙂
Loved all your ideas for using this sauce! I’m always looking to switch things up at my house!
Yum yum! I will go with drizzling the peanut sauce over a quinoa salad. Yummy!
