I am one of them. A good peanut sauce is actually very easy to make and I can usually make a batch of it in less than 15 minutes, with really simple ingredients.
The only special ingredient you need to buy is Thai red curry paste, which is rather easy to get these days at any Asian stores or online.
Peanut sauce makes everything tastes so much better. Drizzle it on chicken, beef, seafood, vegetables or beans, and you will have a wonderful and delicious dish that the entire family loves.
I love green beans so one of of my favorite green bean recipes is this quick and easy green bean with peanut sauce that is super easy to make and goes so well with other dishes and steamed rice.
All you have to do is saute and cook the green beans with some oil and garlic. And once the green beans are cooked just add the peanut sauce on top. So yummy!
