Spicy Peanut Thai Stir Fry

Published by Rebecca Baron on

A thick spicy peanut sauce is one of my favorite ways of making stir fry. Originally a Thai kind of dish, but can quickly be made at home with peanut butter and some spices. Easy to make with just one skillet or a wok. You are welcome to use any sort of protein, and your favorite kinds of vegetables but for these recipes, I went with the vegetables we had on hand.

This recipes pairs well with:

  • Protein suggestions: beef, chicken or tofu
  • Vegetables suggestions: broccoli, green beans, mushrooms, water chestnuts, carrots, onions, and a medley of colorful bell peppers
  • Toppings: white sesame seeds, sliced almonds, crushed peanuts or mung bean sprouts

You can serve this with freshly steamed brown or jasmine rice, or for a low-carb option why not try lettuce wraps? Red or green lettuce and Bibb lettuce’s bright flat leaves make for a delicious crunch.


  • Start with slicing up boneless chicken breast or thigh meat into small slices.
  • Place in a large skillet on medium-to-high heat with a tablespoon of butter, avocado or coconut oil
  • Stir and flip over often to make sure it’s cooked evenly and thoroughly.
  • While the chicken is cooking, you can chop and prep the vegetables of your choice.
    • Additions like onions, garlic, mushrooms are good to add while the protein cooks. Save more delicate vegetables to when the meat is finished cooking
  • Begin to add your peanut sauce ingredients

Quick & Easy Spicy Peanut Sauce

  • Creamy peanut butter 1/2 cup to start
    • (add more for desired taste and consistency)
  • 1/4 cup of coconut, sesame or avocado oil
  • Spice for heat
    • (harissa, chili oil, hot sauce or red pepper flakes)
    • add more or less for your preference
    • Ginger also goes well
  • You want your sauce on the thicker side, add more peanut butter if the mixture starts to get runny.
  • Once you’ve mixed your sauce ingredients in the pan with your protein, then you can add your more delicate vegetables such as broccoli, squash, carrots, or water chestnuts.
  • Place a lid to cover your skillet or wok, to let those vegetables steam a bit, around 2-3 minutes.

Lettuce wraps make for a wonderful low-carb, keto, or grain-free alternative!

With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My
site has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either authored myself or
outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my agreement.
Do you know any ways to help protect against content from
being stolen? I’d really appreciate it.

    Besides copyrighting your wesbite, there is little one can do to prevent the malintentions of others. You have to have faith that your readers will be loyal and appreciate your style. The wheel is always being reinvented.
