Spicy Peanut Sauce Saves the (Busy) Day: Leftover Logic
A wonderful Spicy Peanut Satay Sauce is the best excuse we know of to extend the summer grilling season. True, there might not be as many fresh farmstand vegetables around as there were just a few weeks ago — and, hey, it is getting kind of dark out there. But we’ve got a great idea on how to eke out a little bit more summer, all the while acknowledging that busy school nights are not exactly conducive to prime time in the BBQ universe.
And this Spicy Peanut Satay Sauce is key to the master plan, which goes like this: Throw something on the grill — chicken, steak, pork — and make it an easy, no-fuss operation. In other words, don’t mess with any fancy sauces; just toss on some kind of protein that you coated with salt and pepper.
Then let this Spicy Peanut Satay Sauce work its magic to transform whatever meat you’ve chosen into an exotic Asian dish. That’s all there is to it.
