How to make a spicy Chinese Peanut Sauce

This was a fun recipe to make. At the Seattle Library I checked out a book 500 Chinese Recipes. (image linked to the right). I thumbed through the book and found that many of the recipes had the same ingredients, rice vinegar, rice wine, ginger, garlic, soy sauce, sugar, pepper paste, fish oil, sesame oil, szechuan pepper, hoisin sauce...and a few others that escape me for the moment. 

I like things that are spicy. On a scale of 1 - 10, I like my hot factor to be about a 6.5 or a 7. Once in awhile I will take it up to an 8. 
Basic Ingredients for a Spicy Chipotle Peanut Sauce
Continue reading this blog for the recipe and photos.

  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter (do not use old-fashioned or freshly ground)
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 4 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 3 teaspoons grated ginger
  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 5 teaspoons chipotle hot sauce
  • Dash of lemon juice

  • The first thing I did was grate the garlic and ginger. Then I added the chipotle hot sauce and mixed it up very well. Add everything together and let the mixture simmer on a low heat.

    One thing I recommend is adding enough hot water to get this to the right consistency. So you can add a little more, or a little less water. I added enough water to make it into a real sauce. The first time around it looked too much like peanut butter.
