Best sauce for a nice steak? Garlic-butter.

I love some berries and some nuts (not so keen on twigs), just keep them out of my food

yeah... apple pie, apple fritters, apple turnovers... no thanks. and really? you gonna fry some strawberries or pineapple too? talk about stomach churning

and the ketchup thing means ketchup is for french fries and hash browns. not on burgers or dogs and it's why #3 memphis for chicken because EW... ketchup on chicken is gross

Bearnaise is a but different. It uses egg yolks, shallots, chervil, and peppercorns.

I like to make a stick of salted butter into a nice compound butter with garlic and parsley and then put a nice pat atop my warm steak. I promise no steak can be ruined in this manner.

yeah, I'm more of a no sauce on my steak kind of guy. but I wouldn't push it off my plate if it had some buttery garlicky goodness on it

or bleu cheese.

or bacon

or another steak

YEAH! that's the best sauce for steak; another steak!

Eh, Just pass mine through a warm room. And if you absolutely have to put anything on it, a little salt and fresh ground pepper is all it needs.

A good cut of meat should be flavor enough. It is blasphemous to cover that up.

granddad always had his well done. he was a butcher and knew his beef.

I like mine cooked, but not that cooked.

always tell the server, "my apologies to the chef; medium" if it's a place that tends to overcook, like GA Steakhouse, Longhorn or Outback , "medium well" if it's someplace that knows how to cook a steak, like Ruth's Chris, Mortons or (around here) Capitol Grille.

Was that because of the particular cuts he was eating? I used to always eat my steaks well-done before I knew better, I still don't like them "passed through a warm-room"-rare but medium-rare is perfect.

And the garlic butter sounds like a good way to make a *good* steak better, but I'll stand by my "if it's a GREAT steak, leave it alone!". If it's got enough fat, it shouldn't need the butter.

How about paraphrasing a Mark Twain line:

"Patriotism means loving your country all the time and your government when they deserve it."

Oh, and grilled or fried plantains are awesome, as is grilled pineapple when served with teriyaki anything.
