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, put 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.
