Thanks for the post! Looks delicious! I am some friends over for drinks Friday night, and this would be a great dish.
Just wanted to bump this up ...with the warm weather I know people are looking for ideas for the barbie
This was terrific. The sauce was just a tad too thick for me (or I cooked it too long) so I just thinned it out with a little hot water.
Delicious..thanks for posting this she ra!

I tried this last Sunday. It was terrific. My DH and SIL loved the satay dip. I made it again to have with vegetable and rice bowls on Thursday.
