With this recipe for home-made satay sauce, you will probably think twice, the next time you are in a store buying sauces. The reason for this is simple: it's way more delicious and cheaper too. 

Plus you can brag to your family and friends about how you made this sauce all on your own. The best part is that you can whip up this sauce in 10 minutes flat! 

Preparing the satay sauce -- 5 minutes

DICE the onion finely and set aside. Finely chop the two garlic cloves. POUR water and sweet soy sauce into the pan. ADD diced onion and chopped garlic along to the pan. At this point, you can decide how much sambal you want in the sauce.

We usually scoop in a tablespoon or 2, because we prefer a hotter kind of satay sauce.

Making the satay sauce -- 5 minutes

It's very easy, heat up the small saucepan on medium-high heat. When the mixture has come to a boil, whisk in the peanut butter. Keep whisking until smooth, season with more sambal or sweet soy sauce.

That's really all there is, enjoy! Bonus: if you're really adventurous, you can add 2 tablespoons of coconut milk to make the satay sauce more creamy.
