Binging with Babish: Szechuan Sauce Revisited (From Real Sample!)

HTML kodi
  • Joylandi 12-Sen, 2017
  • Last round, my efforts to recreate the fabled McDonald's Szechuan Sauce were wild, flailing shots in the dark, pathetic and meager attempts to recreate a long-lost condiment out of scanty information and back-alley sources. But now, thanks to a very kind man named David Wasman, I have procured a sample of the genuine article. Follow along this week as we make a rendition of Szechuan Sauce near-identical to the Mulan-inspired goop from 1998. And make some wannabe Chicken McNuggets while we're at it.
    Special thanks to David Wasman for the sauce sample - you can buy the rest of it here at his ebay listing:

      aria t - his girlfriend broke up with him before this video and it was a really rough time for him. He wasn't going to make the video and probably forego making videos in general, but he remembered he had the sauce in his fridge so he pushed on and it helped him become successful and move on.

    Hey Babish! I used your vodka technique for some batter at home and it worked perfectly for deep frying some some crispy mushrooms. I'm actually vegan and I would love to see some more plant based recipes on your channel. Keep up the good work. I'll always be a visitor of your channel.

    I love your series!
    While The kitchen isn’t totally alien to me, your series has markedly improved a number of my skills!
    Recently, I watched an episode in which you recreated a retired sauce from McDonalds, and you discussed using xanthan gum as a thickening agent. In the video, you used a fine sieve when incorporating the gum. As a pharmacist fortunate enough to train at a top school, I'd like to offer an alternative method. Xanthan gum was used a fair amount when creating compounded (unique) dosage forms. The trick to xanthan (and most wet-dry mixtures that don't readily combine) is to first wet the dry ingredient minimally and then add additional ingredients in geometric proportions. I could explain this concept further but a quick Google/UZclip search yields videos that far surpass written explanation.
    Hope this helps! Bon appétit!
