For a sure-hit hors d'oeuvre, serve this sauce with crudités and/or skewered grilled chicken, pork or beef. Or use it as a spread for “grown-up” peanut butter sandwiches. Source: EatingWell Magazine, May/June 1998

This is great but use ONLY ONE spoon of soy sauce...otherwise it's wayyyy too salty. Use full-fat mayo as well:) Pros: Delicious with Less Soy Sauce! Cons: WAY TOO SALTY Read More

Delicious! The sauce is delicious with a nice kick of spice from the pepper and garlic. I combined the ingredients in my makeshift double boiler to make it a bit warm (also helps the peanut butter soften and blend). I substituted the brown sugar with about two packets of Truvia. You definitely need the sweet to bring the flavors together. Always adjust to taste. Mmmmmm good! Read More
