General Tso's can be more than the saccharine, gloopy sauce soaked into flabby, over-breaded chicken to which we've become accustomed. With just a little technique and a little love, the 45-minute wait for this takeout mainstay can be better spent making it yourself.
Adapted from Serious Eats: www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2014/04/the-best-general-tsos-chicken-food-lab-chinese-recipe.html

So I’ve been meaning to ask this. Your knife skills are great but why do you keep changing the way you hold your knife and why do you hold the thing you’re cutting the way you do leaving you fingers vulnerable to cutting

Magmafrost13 8 दिन पहले
Oh hey I have the same knife you used to cut the chicken. Sadly my parents abuse the crap out of it and get upset when I ask them to not leave it in the sink in a pile of cutlery and then guess who's responsibility it is to get the inevitable edge damage fixed.

3:17 You mention letting flavors get to know each other in at least half the videos you make. You should really consider doing a video on making gormeh shabzi. A terrific Persian stew that goes from great to phenomenal after sitting in the fridge for a day, if it ever lasts that long.

So, I've been watching Babish videos for a few weeks now, and this was my first ever attempt at making one of the recipes. It went amazingly well and I impressed someone with it so much that they've started watching Babish videos! Thank you Babish for giving me new recipes to try out and to help improve upon my cooking skills!

Greetings from Canada! Your food videos are just plain awesome! Thesedays, people like myself like to find ways to save money on cooking our own food (rather than eating out or having food delivered). Your videos are a "catalyst" on providing ideas on what to make while saving a lot of dough (pun intended)!

I made this recipe today! It took me an awful lot longer than 40 minutes, but the results were delicious. I don't know if my dark soy sauce was abnormally strong or what, but the final sauce was a little too salty. Next time I would probably use only 1T dark soy sauce and sub low sodium regular soy sauce for the other 2T.

Well it took us (2 people) 1.5 hours and two beers for our first attempt. We might be able to get down to 45 minutes with enough practice. It was soooooo tasty. We will definitely make again.

as a chinese person im now very confused. is this a chinese dish...? i've never seen nor heard of this type of "chinese food".
Angel Fox
Angel Fox 4 दिन पहले
It is chinese in origin, but it isn't 'traditional chinese'. It was created by a chef named Peng Chuang-kuei, who was a chef for the Kuomintang during the civil war. He fled to Taiwan and remained a chef there until 1973 when he came to New York City to start a restaurant. He was originally from Hunan, so his dishes tended to reflect Hunan cooking, but modified to American taste. What is called here General Tso's Chicken is believed to have been a sort of generalized example of Hunan cuisine, but modified by making it slightly less spicy and more sweet in flavor.
