I added extra red pepper and a bit fewer onions. I also used olive instead of peanut oil. I think the addition of salted peanuts would be tasty and add another texture. I would add them just before serving. My family enjoyed the recipe and felt it worthy of eating a second time. I served this with brown rice and broccoli. A salad would make a good side to this dish.

Everyone at my house loved this - of course, we all LOVE peanut butter. The first time I made it, my husband couldn't figure out what made it creamy without being told - so it's not too peanutty. He raved about it. Then I made it again, and we separated some sauce out, and put sauteed tofu in it for my vegetarian daughter. She even said, "this is good" - quite a compliment!!

This was good but not great. I did like how the onions sort of melted into the sauce, and I love peanut butter and tomato together, but it was fairly bland. We don't like real hot food so I was light on the pepper. I added some cumin and a pinch of ginger which helped, and did serve it with chopped peanuts on top. Nothing wrong with it, but would probably not bother making again.

it didnt smell good and also didnt not taste the best we added ranch to it and put it into a tortilla and it tasted way better. we did like the spices.

I don't think there was one thing that we liked about this recipe. The taste was not good, and it did not smell good while I was cooking it. Will not make this again
