We're in a pepper place now beyond seasonable doubt so chili try your best to answer this spice test. I'll heat you halfway and go first.

Gimme that hot mustard on a steak. Love me some chopped chili on lunch or dinner. Tabasco goes on anything, fight me.

Don't like this thread? It's no big dhal.



I may have missed lunch today and I'm dreaming of something spicy to eat.

Szechuan beef on rice is nice. And so is kung pao or chili chicken. The chicken biryani on rice from a place nearby was so hot I coudnt even finish it. I was dying. lol. I like jerk chicken take out but it's so hit and miss on the heat scale.

As for sauces, I max out at mainstream cheap trash like Frank's Hot Sauce or medium heat buffalo wings. I like this cheap shit I got at Walmart called Valentina's hot sauce (I think it's made in Mexico). You get a decent sized bottle for about $2.50. lol

Yes this sauce is amazing!

And anyone that likes chinese food, check out chongqing chicken/laziji. It's fucking amazing, chicken served with the chilli peppers(don't eat the chilis).

I'll try some more sauces I see one day.

The only reason why I tried Valentina's is because I was in the ethnic aisle looking for some $2 bottles of VH sauce and had a hankering for some Jarritos! As I browsed the aisle there were all kinds of international hot sauces here whereas the normal condiments aisle has ketchup, mustard and mainstream hot sauces like Tabasco and Frank's.

I don't have a lot of sauces on me at any time, but when I get through my Valentina's I'll try some of the other sauces in the aisle as there's all kinds including yellow and green sauce bottles too.

You really mustard up your steak? Never heard of that.

I like the heat that slowly creeps up on you as you dig into the meal until it gets hotter and hotter and you don't know where sweat ends and broth begins. The kind you get from ordering #8 heat level spicy curry at the thai restaurant in the Target shopping center.

I don't care for the painful, get me some milk now, level of spicy. I ordered a bigbowl of some spicy red soup at a Chinese restaurant one time and that stuff put me in the hospital with camera scopes run through both ends.

Hot English mustard on a steak is good stuff. I enjoy a basic cream mushroom sauce too but for some sinus cleansing goodness horseradish/hot english is great (sort of like Wasabi). Bang it on a ham sandwich too.

Definitely into the same building heat. I enjoy spice but I want it gone 5 minutes after I eat. I was raised in Singapore and had tons of spice as a toddler so I'm good to go but nothing like hardcore asian or indian spice, they're next level beyond me.

What a spicy adventure you almost caught on buttcam. Wife and I had the opposite, ordered an off the menu chilli mud crab and the maître d' kept asking if we're sure about how spicy. They didn't give us authentic spice and it lacked punch and flavour. Afterwards he asked again and promised we'd get authentic next time around, he kept his word and it was the proper dish on our anniversary revisit.

EDIT: this stuff and just a bit, such as the tip of your knife worth spread over a couple of mouthfuls. Not like a hot dog covered in mustard -


If you want to have a full blown Hot English sauce for steak you need to make it into something like this -

Not a spicy guy in the slightest.

The hottest thing i eat are spicy chips or pop corns (but they are never too spicy) and dried boar meat with red pepper pieces.

Anything beyond that is a no no.

The fetish for super spicy things that make your body hurt is even more hard to understand than people who like the last jedi movie...

Nice thread Ozzy Onya A2Z Ozzy Onya A2Z

Also quite the coincidence as I've started to work up an, as of yet, mild interest into various peppers and hotsauces.

I'm starting out with jalapenos, cayenne peppers and recently bought some Madam Jeanette peppers. The latter is the hottest I've yet eaten. In regards to hotsauce I've only had Frank's red hot (classic/wings) and Tabasco mild: jalapeno. Besides that I've recently bought grounded szechuan in a mill.

There's just not much variety to be bought in my direct vicinity so I'll have to look elsewhere in the near future. Excited to try out different peppers and sauces!

Oh and I bought these which are very nice: pickled peppers (Turkish style):

I'm a Brit, so English mustard with beef, steak, sausages is something I grew up with. The yellow American style mustard is still the best for burgers and hot dogs though ;)

Is that mustard hot as in spicy or just very *sharp* as you get with wasabi and horseradish (which I both love, btw)?

I currently have three types of mustard; a smooth dijon, honey and course seedy one which is also *sharp* .. Normally I also have the American style.

Ken Oath on the bright yellow mustard being aces on hot dogs.

Sharp is a good word rather than spicy. It's funny how many condiments you stock pile from differing cuisines.

I love spicy food. I basically put some form of hot sauce or chili into everything I cook.
There is however, a level of spiciness that's too much, when you start to loose the actual flavor of the ingredients and it all starts tasting like some undefined hot thing.

Lately I've been into Red Thai Curry Paste. Some Chicken, some veggies, red lentils, red curry past and coconut milk is awesome.

Not a damn thing wrong with Valentia sauce. (Its also super easy to make at home). You find this stuff all over South Texas and Northern Mexico.

You'll also find it in the lunch room of most businesses that have a large Mexican workforce, I always see it on the lunch tables in N. Illinois.

I really like Cholula.

Pathia is a sweet and sour curry, is the perfect heat, its extremely hot when eating it, but doesn't linger more than 10mins after

Not as hot as a vindaloo, but a lot hotter than madras

I love hot food, I over pepper everything, and have sweet chilli on a lot of food

Hadn't heard of that one before, looks tasty.



Love a good beef vindaloo, not a fan of the lamb variant though.

Vindaloo is just past the Point of heat/flavor threshold for me, its more pure heat than flavor

Pathia is very hot, but takes nothing away form the flavor, it adds to it, plus the gravy is really thick, whichni like, our curry house does a keema pathia as well, which is dope, great for spreading on a naan bread

Doesn't hot food open your tastes buds up more, so as long as its not stupid hot, it adds to the flavor profile......

Pepper a spice and therefore heat, so you don't want seasoned food?

We were mostly talking about ultra hot stuff that some people like.
