My dad made this often when grilling for the family. I love this served on roasted veggies and yellow rice. Peanut butter and soy sauce come together for great Asian flavor. —Gayle Jefferson, Las Vegas, Nevada

"My family loved this - the sauce was delicious! Definitely double the sauce so you have enough for dipping."

"This is absolutely delicious, and the sauce is out of this world! I made a triple batch of the sauce, which seemed to be enough."

"We LOVED this recipe! Next time I will double or triple the sauce. There wasn't enough with one batch to baste and have leftovers for dipping. I also soaked the skewers and they still burned. Investing in metal skewers for next time. Served it with fried rice. Delicious!!!"

"This recipe is one of the few that my whole family raves about. That is saying a lot because I have three very picky boys.

I also double or triple the the Satay Sauce and freeze it, because we love to eat it on everything.
The last time that I made this recipe it I used onion powder and dried minced garlic in the sauce. It was still amazing."
