Adult Swim shook the "Rick and Morty" multiverse with the sudden release of the much longed for #season 3 premiere on April Fool’s day. The fandom embraced the episode as sort of a blessing, and are longing for the rest of the season as the dates are yet to be announced.

The season 3 premier is an absolute roller-coaster of an entertainer with the escape of Rick Sanchez from prison. In the process of his crafty escape, he heads over to a McDonald's drive-thru to pick up some McNuggets and the then special ‘Mulan’ Szechuan teriyaki dipping #Sauce, which was sold in accordance with the release of the Disney movie Mulan in 1998.

Ever since the mention of this dipping sauce on the show, and how Rick loves it, it has gone on to become the holy grail of viral obsession. This has gone so far, that someone placed a bid on eBay for a pair of these sauces for a whopping $14,700.

Why buy it when you can make it?

The increasing demand for this lip-smacking delicacy has led to one of the popular YouTube chef’s recreate the Mulan Szechuan teriyaki McNugget dipping sauce. Chef Andrew Rea, who runs the channel Binging with Babish has gone one to satiate the taste buds of the #Rick And Morty fandom by making not just one, but three unique ways to recreate this beauty despite not having tasted the original sauce. These three sauces are then put to a taste test.

Let's get right into it.

Sauce #1

Dry roast some dried chilies on a pan and then proceed to add boiling water to the pan and set it aside to bring out the flavor.

The chilies are then ground to a paste with some ginger. Throw this onto a pan with some vinegar, brown sugar and some ground Szechuan peppercorns. Although very spicy, this sauce matches the traditional Szechuan sauce.

Sauce #2

Plum sake, Sriracha sauce, and vinegar to a pan. Sauté this mixture with a little bit of Sauce #1 and a good amount of brown sugar. This sauce comes closest to looking and tasting like the original. Rea credits Reddit user xeropoint for the recipe.

Sauce #3

This sauce is an amalgam of two of McDonald’s prepackaged sauces, Sweet ‘n Sour and Tangy Barbeque. It looks similar to the one in the 1998 McDonald’s commercial but tastes okay.

Wait, we’re not done yet!

In a wrap-up, Rea goes on to mix all three sauces to come up with a yummy concoction, which he says he’d definitely recommend.

The video with its satisfying vibe left us drooling through the course of it, and we’re sure you would feel the same. How did the sauces fare when pitted against each other? Watch the video to find out.
