My hubby thinks it's an atrosity that I like to dip my in ketchup most of the time. Where as he likes A-1 steak sauce if he uses anything. So what do you like to put on your steak? Ketchup? Nothing? BBQ? Steak Sauce? Additional seasonings?

I think a good steak should be eaten as is. But a bad steak needs A-1 or Lea & Perrins! Good beef that is cooked properly is a real treat. I know a lot of people who like ketchup on steak, but my dad thinks it's a travesty! He says, and I agree, that if you need anything on your steak the chef didn't do his or her job correctly.

Makes sense to me! My hubby thinks I"m nuts too! But you are right if it's cooked & seasoned correctly there should be no need for additional condiments.

Your dad and I would get along fine. A GOOD STEAK should have nothing on it but salt and pepper, and those get put on AT THE TABLE.

I've tried to eat steak with ketchup but it's just not the same. I love a-1 if we don't have any in the house then i would use barbecue sauce.

I don't know if I'm alone on this, but I like to dip my steak in sour cream. Sound crazy? Sure, ketchup is good, steak sauce is better, but my favorite is sour cream. I like the light sour cream more because I feel less guilty about any fat content. lol It's yummy to me! Anyone else?

I would definatly not of thought about sour cream to dip my steak in. Though I would if it was in combination with a few other ingredients like salsa.

Aside from usually marinating it in Jack Daniels Mesquite marinader, I use plain ole A-1. Hubby will mix a little A-1 with a little ketchup. The kids pretty much stick with ketchup or eat it plain.

Whenever I make steak, I season and marinate our steak first. I love putting worcheshire sauce on it when it's done. I also love putting some blue cheese dressing on top. So yummy!

Good to see I"m not the only one who likes to put dressing on their food! *LOL* I've been eating my meats & potatos w/ Ranch dip or dressing since before it was considered a "normal" condiment outside of a salad.

I like A-1 Steak Sauce on my Porterhouse or T-Bone steaks. But on Skirt Steak I LOVE Chimichurri Sauce. Chimichurri Sauce is an Argentine steak condiment made from Parsley, Oregano, Garlic, Olive Oil and other things. It is super yummy! Have a nice day and happy myLotting!!!

Chimichurri Sauce sounds pretty good! Though I like Garlic it doesn't get along with my digestive tract...

I usually use A-1 if anything. Even on a really well flavored steak I enjoy A-1. Although I know to some people that is like insulting the steak maker. It has nothing against lack of flavor. It's just a preferance.

That is true. Just like kids eat all their meats with ketchup, adults can become particular to what they prefer on their meats as well.

I want to taste the MEAT. Mind you, most of those I shouldn't be eating even BEFORE the diet, and now I'm really wanting to taste what I'm eating.
