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:

    McDonald's needs to bring back Chicken Selects. Them tendies were sooo good. I can get tendies at Wendy's but they only sell a 3 tender combo, don't even give you the option of a 5 tender combo, sad!

    For as good as Babish is at cooking he equally sucks at writing out cooking instructions. The instructions on his site are filled with missing amounts and ingredients, poor grammar, repetition, etc. Just a heads up for those going to print this'll have to whip out your copy of Word and make some corrections.
    Other than that, this recipe is almost spot on. My exact copy of this recipe tastes a bit less soy saucy than the legit stuff, so my next batch I will increase the soy sauce ratio a bit and see how it goes. To be fair, the soy sauce becomes more pronounced as it cools, so wait until your sauce cools completely before judging its taste for yourself (I found this out as I was impatient in taste testing it, but its final taste is still not quite soy saucy enough for my taste).

      It's cause of the TV show. I guess the sauce had sort of a silly following from back when it first came out during the Disney Mulan film. Then there was an episode of Ricky and North where the sauce was talked about and became a joke on the episode. And fans of the show went out to find it. McDonalds eventually brought it back, but in such tiny quantities that fans lined up and basically rioted in some places.

      All in all.....people had way too much time on their hands

    When "Szechuan" is used as an adjective to describe food, it usually implies two ingredients that have not been mentioned here: 1) Szechuan Peppercorns, and 2) Hot Peppers. The word "Szechuan" itself means "Four Rivers", which can refer to one of two things: 1) The Four Rivers flowing through Szechuaan Province and/or 2) the amount of water needed to quench the heat of the food.

    “McDonald’s nuggets are the apex of the art form.” Have you actually eaten a good nugget before? Joking aside, McNuggets are actually garbage. They are truly terrible.

  • Dalton Michaels

    the old chicken nugget (chicken stars) from carl's junior are the best form of chicken nugget ever IMO , id dare to say better than the mcnugget. you get more surface area per nugget , carl's jr used a more rough breaded texture over a battered texture as well. i also think/vaguely remember they cooked them a little longer for a slightly crunchier texture but that may have been a variable depending on the fry cook idk, i remember them as being more crunchy. also i think Carl's has since changed the ranch dressing recipe (since the days of the star shaped nuggets) , it too used to be better IMO.
