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

              What do you think about a BLTPizza?

              Too easy?
              I can try something else.

                  The sauce came out very dark compared to the one in your video. Maybe the soy sauce was too dark?

                          Never had an order of General's chicken - i tend to go for the more authentic dishes.

                                      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.

                                              Is there anything I could replace the vodka with? I love vodka but the person I want to cook this for can't have any alcohol at all

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

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.
