NOW can we move to impeach this idiot?

He lost me with that one, myself.   Good steak - especially aged steak - needs salt, pepper, and not much else.

I'd go with arrested development, myself, but then what else is new. While I disapprove myself, I won't fault somebody for being squeamish and wanting their steak well done, but ketchup?

A1 is the bees knees. I can put that on a shoe and would it eat.

Better question...what the hell is up with Heinz 57? Is it trying to be a ketchup? A BBQ sauce? A steak sauce?

A1 is basically ketchup mixed with Worcestershire sauce.  When I used to use steak sauce (I haven't put sauce on my steaks for about 15 years now), but ran out, I would mix the two.  It tastes almost exactly the same.

Kind of like tartar sauce is nothing but mayonnaise and relish mixed.  I never actually buy tartar.  I mix my own, but add in some dill, garlic & onion powder, mustard seed, white pepper, and a dash of lemon juice.  It's like 3x better than anything you can buy at the store.

You know, my initial reaction to Steakgate is that I don't care because I'm a vegetarian and thus it has nothing to do with me.

However, then I remembered Martin Niemöller and his famous words "First they came for the socialists, but I did not speak out because I am not a socialist".

And I realized that if I did not stand with the omnivores in this time of great crisis, I would be no better than the Europeans who stood by and did nothing during the holocaust.

So I stand with you all. My heart bleeds with yours and it does not bleed ketchup.

And then Thousand Island is just tartar sauce with some ketchup mixed in.

So with just some ketchup, mayo, relish, and Worcestershire, and a couple extra spices that most people normally have, you can also make your own A1, Thousand Island, and tartar.

I love Heinz 57 sauce.  I don't use it real often though, as I don't like altering the steak flavor aside from some salt and pepper (and onions).

This.   Why buy it, pay a premium, and not really know what's in there?  Make it yourself, it takes all of about three minutes, and have it the way you want.

I make a "sauce" for my fries that is mayo, ketchup, a little brown mustard, dash or two of Worcestershire sauce, a dash of horseradish (or if I don't have that, cayenne pepper), and a little salt and pepper.   Sometimes some garlic powder.   To beat the band.

Did all of you forget when he ate New York pizza with a knife and fork?

How did that alone not cost him the election?

You know who else ate pizza with a knife and fork? Hitler.

You know who else ate overcooked steak with ketchup? Satan (I'd say Hitler, but he was a vege)

Overcooking a beautiful steak from a high end place IS a crime against nature.  As is using ketchup on it.

Any guesses as to his choice of sides? I'm going with fries and probably something buried in cheese. Either mac or potatoes. He doesn't grab me as somebody who likes spinach or peas.

A1 isn't bad, but I would only eat it on a lower grade cut of steak, or hamburger steak, or an actual hamburger.  But a little dab will do ya.

A good cut of steak (ribeye, filet, NY strip) doesn't need anything but whatever seasoning you prefer (I normally just use salt & pepper), and is best cooked to medium rare.

Ketchup has NO PLACE on a steak.  What?

Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

Correct, it should be splodged at the side of the plate so you can dip the steak.

Fuck steak fries. Absolutely worthless. Either get a baked potato or french fries. Don't try to combine the two because it fails at both. I'd have a hard time ranking the various potato sides, as they all have their charm, but the steak fry is definitely the bottom of the list. 

Correct, it should be splodged at the side of the plate so you can dip the steak.
Sorry, mate, but judgement was passed when you first chimed in with the burnt, ketchup laden steak.

I kinda have to agree, but I never took the time to noodle through the "why" of it before reading your post.  I mean, it seems like it's a great idea.  On paper, it should work great as a side.  But somehow, it never does.

Yeah, once again, I'm with Barto.  Sorry for painting with a broad brush, but of all the wonderful things the British Isles have brought to the world, culinary advice doesn't even make the list.

I actually prefer mayonnaise on fries.  It's amazing.

Or if its curly fries, then horseradish.  Arbys knows what it's doing.

I'm good with horseradish.  I go through brief phases with mayo, but while yummy, I quickly get overwhelmed by the richness/fattiness of it.
