SO HOW'D IT GO?

I made these or dinner tonight and found them quite disappointing.    The burgers really didn't want to hold together and they were quite bland.

The satay sauced didn't really form a sauce.  It ended up being a paste type thing.  I think I was expeting a sauce that I would be able to pour over the burgers, but it really wasn't like that at ll.

The taste was ok, but a bit too much like peanut butter for my liking.  If I was to make this again I would probably halve the peanut butter quantity and I think that would help it to be more 'saucy' and improve the flavour.  I think it also needs a bit more chili to give it a bit of a kick as it did seem to be lacking something.
