This recipe is super easy and much tastier than the (sometimes too sweet) satay sauce from the supermarket! But do you call it satay sauce or peanut sauce? Although with both names you mean the brown sauce made from peanuts that you eat with your satay (such as satay babi), the official name is peanut sauce. Satay sauce can also refer to other sauces that are served with cubes of meat on a wooden skewer. In Indonesia it is also customary to eat a sauce based on soy sauce with your satay. This peanut sauce is also delicious with bami goreng, but in the Netherlands we also love to eat it with a sandwich or fries.
Finely chop the garlic and the white onion.
Place a pan on the stove, add oil and fry the onion and garlic.
Add the sambal oelek and fry for a while, so that all flavors are released well.
Add the peanut butter, soy sauce and a little water and stir the mixture well and let it simmer for a minute.
Finally, add lemon juice to taste. Season to taste with salt and white pepper.
If the substance of the satay sauce is too thick, add a little more water.
Salamat makan! ('Enjoy your meal!')
