Hunan-Style Peanut Sauce

By Andrew Zimmern

This classic Hunan-style peanut sauce is one of my favorites for dipping, glazing and enjoying with all sorts of Asian food. It’s great with sticky rice, fried chicken summer rolls, ribs, chicken satay, pork belly or chicken off the grill.

Watch Andrew make this recipe:

Hunan-Style Peanut Sauce


    Ingredients

    • 1 tablespoon peanut oil

    • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
    • 1 tablespoon peanut butter
    • 1/4 cup roasted ground peanuts

    Instructions

    Heat the oil in a small pan and add the garlic. Fry just until the garlic turns light brown. Add the tomato paste, sugar, chile paste, chicken stock, fresh red chiles, hoisin, peanut butter and half of the ground peanuts. Stir to combine. Bring to a boil, then remove from heat and pour into a serving bowl. Top with remaining ground peanuts and extra sliced fresh chiles if you want more heat.
