Altered ingredient amounts. With the addition of 2 more tablespoons of peanut butter, this marinate was truly delicious. - 07 Aug 2008


Something else. Serve with chopped cucumber and red onion mixed with a little lime juice. - 07 Aug 2008


Something else. Adding a splash of pineapple juice is nice too - it's often served with chunks of pineapple in restaurants. I serve it with carrots and peppers on a bed of noodles - 09 Aug 2010
