I Tried To Make McDonald's Szechuan Sauce From "Rick And Morty" And Here's How It Was

If you can't visit Dimension C-1998M, this is the next best thing.

McDonald's actually sent the show's co-creator (and the voice of Rick and Morty) some Szechuan sauce from "Dimension C-1998M," a place where it's always 1998.


Then, I added balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, Sriracha, brown sugar, red pepper flakes, and ginger — the only ingredient I chose to skip was the optional plum sake!

I was surprised by how legitimate it looked! I love garlic so I used a little more than the recipe called for, but the consistency was still perfect for a dipping sauce. I went to McDonald's to grab some McNuggets and McAte 'em all!


This was SO, SO, SO good! I can't emphasize enough how worth it it was to take a small amount of time preparing a sauce that enhances your McNuggets exponentially. Keep in mind, this recipe is a "tribute" to actual Szechuan sauce, so you can play with the ingredients and add more or less of particular things to get the taste you're seeking.

I recommend trying it out as it's listed first, then tinkering accordingly, but whatever combination you decide on, I promise you won't regret it!

For now I'll keep cooking this stuff up, but I have hope that one day I can put away my skillet, pull into a drive-thru, and shout for McNuggets and Szechuan sauce from the comfort of my vehicle!
