Here’s a little dish from Bon Appetit that sounds harmless enough but was so spicy, it brought tears to my dinner guests’ eyes: Asian grilled steak with spicy slaw. The steak was simple and scrumptious — simply marinate in soy sauce, freshly grated ginger and minced garlic. But the slaw — coated in a dressing of vinegar, sugar, more ginger, jalapenos and green onions — caused fireworks in our mouths! Sweet tasting at first, but then POW! The heat hits ya. I think I made the mistake of not removing the seeds from the peppers — the recipe did not instruct to do so; perhaps it presumed I had enough common sense to do on my own? Despite the blunder, it was pretty good. I would make again, but would definitely lighten up on the peppers! — Angela M.
