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

    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

    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.

    Ernest The alcohol boils away while cooking all that’s left is the flavor that the vodka brought to the sauce

    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.

    Alcohol has a very low evaporation point. So low, that when it's spilled, it's only a matter of time before its gone.
