Peanut Sauce 3

1 tbsp dark soy sauce
2 tsp lemon juice
4 tbsp chunky peanut butter
1 tsp sambal oelek
2 tsp dark brown sugar
1 cup thick coconut milk
1⁄2 tsp garlic, crushed
1⁄2 tsp fresh ginger, minced
1⁄2 tsp lemon grass, minced
2 tbsp vegetable oil

Mix the soy sauce, lemon juice, peanut butter, sambal and sugar in a small saucepan; add the coconut milk. Heat, stirring, until almost boiling.

Sauté garlic, ginger and lemon grass in the vegetable oil for 2-3 minutes until very fragrant. Pour into the sauce and simmer for 4-5 minutes, until sauce is very thick, stirring constantly to prevent sticking.

Great over satay or gado gado.
