Pork satay hot pot

A rich, tasty and saucy pork satay dish 

I adore satay sauce, but traditionally I would have used peanut butter and sugar to make a tasty one and unfortunately it’s just not a healthy combination! I wanted to make an easy to do, but tasty satay with plenty of sauce and this ticks all of the boxes. It’s perfect for all of the family, I leave the chilli out for the kids!

I love powdered peanut butter, particularly for cooking with as it’s a low-fat way to get that peanutty taste, and it mixes in so well with sauces and marinades.

There are a lot more options on the market now since I first started buying this- the first one I bought was PPB which I think cost about £9 from the health food shop- it lasted well but I didn’t buy it again at that price. There are lots of different options on Amazon if you just type in ‘powdered peanut butter’, PB2 is one of the best value that I have found.

For Slimming World, different peanut butter powders vary in syns,  PB Fit is 1.5 syns per tbsp, if you use PB2 it’s 1 syn per tbsp.
