  • 1/2 cup chunky peanut butter

  • 1 tablespoon asian chili-garlic sauce or sriracha

Preheat an outdoor grill or grill pan to medium-high. Heat the peanut butter to soften in the microwave, in a small pot over medium heat or on the grill. Stir in the juice (or cider) to sweeten, the tamari for salt and the chili-garlic sauce for heat.

Mix the meat with the scallions, garlic and ginger; season with salt and pepper. Form into 8 patties and coat with a little oil. Grill, turning once, until cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes. Douse with lots of satay sauce and serve on the rolls with the toppings of your choice.
