I love making different stir-fries at home. I recently found the Dr. Foo’s Kitchen Thai Peanut Coconut Sauce at Costco and it seemed like a really versatile sauce to use with Asian-style dishes like stir-fries, so I decided to share it with you! The bottle says Dr. Foo is a real person who’s been cooking for 40 years – it even has a cute little picture of her on the label! I love seeing things like that on products; it gives them character. The sauce can be found in the sauce aisle at Costco (the unrefrigerated one).

Taste

The Dr. Foo’s Kitchen Thai Peanut Coconut Sauce is a delicious and moderately spicy coconut peanut curry sauce. Upon first taste, you get a perfectly-balanced blast of peanut and coconut followed by strong notes of red curry. The sauce is very creamy and smooth and melts into cooked noodles or chicken. The bottle suggests using the sauce in many different ways, and I agree after having tasted it. I can see using it on salads, in stir-fries, as a marinade for chicken or pork or as a dip for vegetables or grilled meat skewers. The sauce definitely has a bit of heat to it, but I’m pretty heat sensitive and I didn’t find the spice was enough to turn me off. It actually accentuated the flavors.

Cost

The bottle is quite large – 896 milliliters. The regular price at Costco is $9.49 Canadian. This might seem a little bit expensive, but I think this is a pretty high-quality sauce.

Convenience

As discussed above, the Dr. Foo’s Kitchen Thai Peanut Coconut Sauce is versatile and could be used to make a number of different dishes. For that reason, I’d say it’s a convenient item to have in your kitchen. Some ambitious people prefer to make their own sauces, but I personally don’t have time for that! One thing to be aware of with this sauce is that once you open the bottle, it needs to be refrigerated.

Nutrition

One tablespoon contains 35 calories, two grams of fat, three grams of sugar, one gram of protein and 65 milligrams of sodium. When you compare those numbers to other sauces and salad dressings, this one actually has less fat and sugar than many other options. That surprised me a bit, since it’s so tasty. I also have to say that I really appreciate how all of the ingredients are ones that I recognize and can understand being used in the sauce.

  1. I love the taste of this product, pairs really well with Siwin Asian Chicken and Vegetable Potstickers. My only problem was I didn’t use all of it at once. Next time I went to use the product (Yes it was Fridgerated) it was full of mold. I would love to be able to have this product on hand, but at $9.99 for a one time use it is to costly.

  2. I hear your pain having mold grow is gross and very wasteful, I wonder if it could be frozen? AND before you jump on me for that, I travel a lot but hate shelling out for the smaller versions of stuff in the local grocery store. I buy the small individual servings of guacamole and freeze them and then remove from freezer 10 minutes or so before using. This product sounds delish, I will invest the $10.00 and try the freezing trick but thanks for the heads up

  3. I have had the same problem with blue mold. Bought it on March 17th, used a couple of times & then wanted to use it last night. Full of mold. Delicious product but sure does not have a long life after being opened. And yes, it was in the fridge. Would not buy again.

  4. I bought one last year and like the taste.
    I did refrigerate it right after opening and in a week or so I notice mold around the edge.
    Costco did took it back. I guess it was not their first time hearing that same problem.
