4 tablespoons soy sauce 2 tablespoons peanut butter or black bean paste 1 tablespoon honey or molasses or brown sugar 2 teaspoons white vinegar 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder 2 teaspoons sesame oil 20 drops chinese hot sauce, habenero or jalepeno 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
Simply mix together.
At first, it does not appear like it will mix but, keep at it just a bit longer and you have.
Strange ingredients, but great taste. Did not put hot sauce in though.

I personally gave this a 3 star, but the 3 friends I had with me, all gave it a 4 or better. I was a little overwhelmed by the peanut butter so I increased some of the other elements. I increased most of the heat elements, the soya sauce, garlic powder, and I even added some broth. The jury is still out until I have used it in tonights dinner.

This was very good! I used the peanut butter, brown sugar, and used apple cider vinegar instead of white, along with the rest of ingredients . Also added a little powdered ginger, will make again!!

I personally think molasses works better than honey or brown sugar in this recipe. Just my suggestion.

Was delicious. I cut down on the peanut butter, used honey, siracha, add some crushed pepper, 1/2tsp ginger, some more black pepper, and rice wine vingear

I used peanut butter in this because I couldn't find black bean paste. I really kept focusing on the peanut butter taste. I think the black bean paste must be the better choice. I'll try it again if I can find that ingredient (there is another grocery store that has a better Asian section that I'll try)

Wow, as everyone else says, this was so delicious I will never buy bottled again! It's also a very forgiving recipe - I used Sriracha hot sauce because I didn't have the Chinese hot sauce. It was so good I just wanted to drink it from a cup!

If you are wondering if all these rave reviews are for real, they are! And as you look at it and wonder if peanut paste could possibly be an ok ingredient, it is. This works and works well.
