      I find it a crime punishable with jail time if you eat General Tso's chicken without fried rice.

      You need a larger saucepan for stir-fry's... 4:08 and this is why we cook with woks!

      instead of alcohol you could use anything tart/sugary.. pineapple juice, grape juice, almond extract,white grape juice... grats on the recovery bro.

        Hey Babish have you heard of dragon and phoenix dish? Everyone I talk to says it's just sweet and sour chicken and hot and sour pork. But I taste something different in the dish.

                Don't particularly get why you have to marinate every food you make. There's such a thing as too much salt...

                                I was so unaware that people don’t season rice. Like I always salt my rice while cooking it.

                                  Been watching Babish for a while. Very curious about his watch. Does he wear it for the camera or is he just like that at home? And the shirts? Wouldn't he just wear like a T-shirt at home? Oh no wait cuz we see him... Chef John doesn't appear on camera so we only see him through reflections where he wears T-shirts. I don't know why I have these stupid questions. Forget I asked.

                                    Not enough sauce, you need extra to coat all the rice.

                                      Could you see about doing an episode about labels mean on certain foods as part of basics? As someone who took nutrition classes I quickly found that several labels don't mean what people think they mean (bonus points if you can find a registered dietician or fda person to come on your show!)

I added some sauteed veggies to go with the chicken and rice. Had to make a few changes due to not having all the ingredients. best General tso's chicken ive ever eaten!!
