Thai Peanut Sauce Pork Dip

So…I took this peanut sauce recipe and made a Thai peanut sauce dip with pork. I’ve been making this for years and my family scarfs this peanut sauce recipe with pork right up. Sometimes I make it for dinner and we make lettuce wraps with it. I serve rice on the side and a smashed cucumber salad. Everyone is happy. But one great way to please all is to use this as dip. It’s new and addicting and has no cheese or dairy, which is a change from most dips I know of.

Go ahead. Look up the word dip. I’ve never realized just how many meanings there are for the word. My favorite from the Urban Dictionary goes like this: “Dip –  leave abruptly. To get the hell out of somewhere.”  In this case at least, with this recipe, it would go something like this: “Quit being a dip. If you don’t put that damn dip in front of me, I’m going to dip right out of here.”

And with good reason, because this is damn good dip. You are going to want to dip your dippers into this dip and hoard this mess of a dip where it only belongs to you and just you. This is a totally addicting dip. I kid you not. Sometimes I fool myself  and serve it with lettuce whereupon it becomes a  peanut sauce dip recipe with pork that can be used in lettuce wraps and then served for dinner. After all, dips just aren’t for dipping anymore. You know that, right?

It seems we’ve made it through chili week on the Blogosphere.  Every other blog I’ve read is doing the chili. I guess I’m with the in crowd. Of course everyone who wasn’t, seems to be doing dips. Ooo eee! I’m doing both, just to make it clear. Yes, that season of the year is upon us. The time of crock pots and chili and dips. Yeah, Some might say Super Bowl is finally here, but being the non football fanatic that I am, I scream “Football season is almost over!”.

But being the dip I am, at least when it comes to football, you ought to know that I’m not a dip, when it comes to dips. I know a good dip when I see one and this peanut sauce dip is one of them. Yes, it is a peanut sauce recipe with pork. No sour cream or cream cheese, though it does have Thai ingredients and I love Thai food. You could also say that it has Vietnamese ingredients and I love Vietnamese. I guess it’s kind of AC/DC. Just like the dip or lettuce wrap thing; what ever way floats your boat! You can serve it with rice crackers or veggies like carrots, cucumber rounds and roasted sweet potato slices. Of course, it also tastes great over rice or noodles. I made scallion Chinese flat bread which made a great dipper. Remember, versatile is this dip’s middle name!

I’m placing a bet that you are going to love this dip. I love artichoke dip and I love onion dip. But here and there it’s nice to switch things up a bit. Go ahead. Don’t be a dip. Just make this dip!
