Who can resist peanut butter? I like to add a little pizzazz to my recipes, especially meat dishes, by adding a dab or two of some good ole peanut butter. For some mouth appeal, I have added to this recipe some chopped pecans. This sauce goes great with chicken and beef dishes! NOTE: All spices may be modified to your family's taste.
- 1/4 C. peanut butter
- 1 3/4 C. ketchup
- 3 tablespoons light brown sugar
- 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 2 dashes light soy sauce
- 2 teaspoons dried cilantro
- Pinch of dried thyme
- 1 tablespoon garlic powder
- Crushed red pepper, to taste
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1/4 c. finely chopped pecans
Slightly warm peanut butter in microwave for easy incorporation. Be careful not to burn or scald.
In medium mixing bowl, combine all other ingredients. Mix well.
Slowly incorporate peanut butter and mix until well blended.
Sauce will be slightly thicker than traditional BBQ sauce. Refrigerate leftover sauce in tightly sealed container.
