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:

    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.

    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.

    The real stuff given with the Mulan meal was great. Near the end of the promotion they would give you the stuff mandatory coz the szechuan sauce was ignored by clients, i remember being pissed coz they'd given me the 3 pack of chezuan with my meal, i also remember thinking 5 min later that it was damn great, wish i had tasted it before... This is the source of the legend.
    Idiotic corporation failed to keep the recipe, like the fucking pizza. So amazing. I think if i were to be served one small pizz with the sausage i would cry...
    Same for PFK grilled Zinger from 2002-3. The remastered version from a few years ago was a fucking insult. Last time i went there.

    McDonald's just agreed to stop using chickens that are forced to grow so fast their little hearts and organs can't keep up and they die from it. That on top of the mutant chickens they breed to have insanely huge breasts which makes them partially immobile. Fuck McDonald's and people who eat there.

      GoodMachines sorry for the typo. Its 3 am and my eyes are tired. Guess I should have reviewed before I hit post. And I got some tenders about 3 or 4 months ago and they offered the szechuan sauce at the time. I asked if it was permanent and they said yes
