Kitchen Adventures: Holy Spicy Hell

Actual Title: Sizzling Beef Steak with Hoisin Prawn & Noodle Bowls. This is a HOT dish. I had to have it with milk. We made it a second time when Kamber was here and it was just as hot. 

Ingredients: Sesame Seeds, Red Chili, Ginger Root, Spring Onions, Cilantro, Egg Noodles, Garlic, Shrimp, Beansprouts, Hoisin Sauce, Soy Sauce, Limes, Romaine Lettuce, Radishes, Sirloin Steaks, Chinese Five Spice, Sesame Oil, Oyster Mushrooms
We've been eating a lot of red chilies but this dish just seems to double the heat factor. Ian keeps in the seeds when he chops it so it could be less spicy but then how would we get our sinuses to clear so easily? :P The bunny ears below are pieces of romaine heart. These add some crunch to the dish and serve as an attempt to "cool" off your mouth. It doesn't really work but I appreciate their effort! The recipe made good use of our wok and everything cooked pretty quickly. I'm sure we will do this again in the future.. but maybe I can convince my sous chef to cut down the heat.... :) 653 hot and spicy calories.
