  • To make the sauce, heat the vegetable oil in a saucepan, add the onions and garlic, and then cook for 15 minutes to soften.
  • Next add the peanut butter, maple syrup, Tabasco, coriander, vinegar and enough cold water to make a sauce consistency.
  • Just warm the whole sauce through, do not boil.
