Creamy & nutty, this effortless Thai dipping sauce will become a staple in your kitchen when making some of your favorite Asian foods. With a few ingredients, it’s perfect on noodles, salads & many more!
If you’ve been reading the blog for some time, you know that I love easy, simple meals. Especially when I’m too busy to cook. Like many are these days, I have been spending more time homeschooling and working.
As many of you are now becoming aware, homeschooling is not for everyone, and it takes a special kind of person to teach. Much respect to all of our teachers. I miss you all!!!
Therefore, we must allocate “extra” time in the day to prepare a well-balanced meal while still maintaining a normal work schedule, and make sure the kids are not in front of the tv screen all day.
Preparing sauces like this Thai dipping sauce to flavor or accommodate a main dish alleviates a lot of stressful meal planning. It is so quick and easy to make it can even accommodate carry-out themed dinner night. I like the fact it can easily be refrigerated for later use.
In the past, I’ve posted my Ramen beef soup, but today I’m finally sharing one of my favorite with you. I do enjoy other versions of peanut sauces when I make beef and peanut stew, but there’s nothing like this dipping sauce.

Various version of this sauce is used in Asian cuisine. You don’t need to worry about overwhelming flavors. And it accommodates beef, poultry, and seafood well.

How to Make Thai Peanut Dip
To make this recipe, simply stir or whisk the Teriyaki sauce, cayenne pepper, peanut butter, orange juice and garlic together in a bowl until they create a succulent, smooth sauce.
When you first mixed the ingredients, it will appear as if the peanut butter is refusing to blend in with the other ingredients, but continue to mix with a fork or whisk. At the end, the mixture will look something like this:
This is totally normal! The sauce will start to form the longer it sits. The mixture in these pictures was prepared to base the chicken, shrimp, and mushroom kabobs.
If you are not preparing it to use as a base, I recommend blending the ingredients in a blender so that all the garlic lumps are liquified, leaving you with a smoother sauce.
If you are a fan of garlic, then by all means, dip all day long!
Continue whisking or blend as needed until you reach your desired consistency.
