Creamy Satay Sausages


June 10, 2015

A creamy satay sauce for your sausages

  • Prep: 5 mins
  • Cook: 4 hrs
  • Yields: 6


12 thin beef sausages

300ml reduced fat cooking cream (I used Nestle Carnation 'lite' cooking cream)

1 cup peanut butter (smooth or crunchy)

1 tsp curry powder

2 tbsp. sweet chilli sauce

1-2 cups water (see *notes in method)


1Cut sausages into 3rds and place in slow cooker.

2I did not brown or pre cook them in any way - but you can if you really want to.

3Combine cream, peanut butter, curry, sweet chili sauce and 1 cup water.

4Pour over sausages and cook on LOW for approx. 4-5hrs.


1I noticed that at approx half way point the sauce was reduced and thick, so at this point I added a second cup of water. However all slow cookers can vary in heat so if yours does not reduce you may not need the second cup of water. If in doubt add it, you can always thicken at the end )

2This produced a thick, almost fluffy (for lack of a better word),satay sauce that was not spicy and was suitable for children and adults alike.

Alternate Version

1Try the chicken version of this over pasta or served with vegetables and mash >> Satay Chicken and Spinach

If using regular cream, add 1-2 tsp cornflour to it first to prevent splitting Julie

I made this last night but I used 1 1/2 chicken breast instead. It was delicious, so creamy and easy to make. Thanks again Pauline for another fantastic recipe. This will definitely be on repeat I’m my house.

Could you make this with cut up beef steak in place of sausages ?

This is a heavenly sauce. I added a few extras , cracked pepper, salt, minced garlic, hoisin sauce, and a dash of peanut oil. So so yummy. I didn’t need to add the second cup of water and it was thick and creamy.

My whole family gave this delicious recipe a tick of approval. Will definitely make this one again. The sauce is so creamy and has the perfect amount of spice for the kids as well. Thanks Paulene for another great recipe.

Love this recipe, so easy and tasty 😋

I added more sweet chilli sauce to it and was 5 star approved by the husband and kids. Perfect. Thank you it’s delicious.

I’d cut the time in half
Just to give the flavours still time to go nicely together still 🙂

How would I make the sauce if the sausages are already cooked?

Oh my god this is delicious. I’ve always tried making satay from scratch but never nailed it. This is so easy & by far the best satay. I made a few changes like I cooked in a frypan like devilled sausages & only used 1/2 cup of water & like a 3rd of a jar of peanut butter instead plus pre cooked sausages half way & added onion & it turned out perfect. Glad i stumbled upon this recipe. Cheers

Absolutely loved it! I used a 400ml coconut cream instead and also added about 1/4 teaspoon turmeric and an onion. Served on rice and the family raved about it! Definitely will be a regular from here on in!!

Was so yummy and delicious
Would probably halve the sauce next time , only because I don’t usually have 12 sausages lol

Absolutely delicious! Stoked I came across this recipe, it’s a new favourite in our house. 5 stars! ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I love satay so was keen to try this. I substituted the evaporated milk for coconut cream and increased the amount of sweet chilli. Perfect!

This was my first slow cooked meal. It was very yummy. All kids ate it too. Very simple and easy. Only took 4 and half hours on low which is great if its a little later in the day 😄

Loved how simple yet really tasty this was, I used chicken sausages.
I would use the sauce again with other meat options too. Chicken fillets or diced beef for sure.
(I also added a little bit extra curry powder)

Awww that’s awesome! Thanks Rebecca 🙂

I used this recipe for chicken wings and was great. After reading comments and knowing we like spice I doubled the curry and sweet chili sauce. Because I was using chicken wings I didn’t add any of the water to allow for the juices of the chicken and it wasn’t needed. Used 2 kg of wings and had heaps of sauce which coated the wings perfectly. Cooked 4 hours low

I’m making this one again later in the week. I bought some chicken satay sausages for it this time around for a little extra flavour. It’s a delicious recipe, cheap, easy and makes a lot 🙂
Very creamy and full of flavour.

This was really nice and will definitely cook again. Next time I would halve the peanut butter.

Thanks to the review above, I added more curry powder so it had a little more kick. What a lovely meal.
Can’t wait to cook this one again

This is a favorite we used evaporated milk. We all loved it even my 2 year old. There was none left over for the next day

Family favourite here! We added an extra teaspoon of curry powder as we found it extremely mild. Also works well with evaporated milk if you don’t have cooking cream on hand.
