The hubby made a fabulous dinner last week and it was so good I want to share it with ya’ll. The first night he used chile-garlic sauce, as the recipe calls for, and it was wonderful but a tad spicy. On the second night we had leftovers and he cooked more, but used a Thai Peanut Sauce. It was delicious!
