You want Atomic, make em with my Fatalii peppers! They're about the same size as Jalapenos, but 100 times hotter.

No thanks! Once I go to the trouble of making them, I like to be able to eat them.

You're right of course, the Fatalii ABTs would be too hot to gain any enjoyment from eating them.

They are the type of pepper that is meant for seasoning only. Diced very, very tiny and added to a sautee or broth to add spice to a dish.

They are intended to add spice, not flavor. Some folks like to eat a dish as intended by the person who wrote the recipe, but add a bit of spice to it.

That is how to do that without affecting the intended flavor.

Wanted a T-Bone this evening, so I tried something I've never done. I deep fried it.

In 375 oil for exactly 2 minutes after bringing the steak to room temp. The steak was less than an inch thick. Maybe 3/4".

I didn't think that would be long enough, but it was actually perfectly rare, the way I love steak.

The meat around the edges was a little tough, as it had three sides cooking at once, but the inside meat was nice and rare and really good.

Don't think I'll do it again though. The grilled flavor beats out the deep fat fried flavor for steak IMHO.

It was an interesting test though.

Fried foods are fine but when you do that to a beautiful piece of beef it's a crime. (<sigh>) Promise you will NEVER disrespect a nice piece of beef that way again!!

Next time you feel the urge to deep fry beef do a chicken fried steak with a cheap cube steak.

But, but....I ate the whole thing! ha! it was just an experiment. I swear, don't spank me, I'll never do it again!

On second thought, a little spanking might just be fun...
