1. Ketchup has one purpose...fries

I put it on french fries. That's it.

I don't even have any in my fridge because I don't do fries at home. They never come out right.

9. Ohhh, home made fries are the best!

I live in a city where almost all fries I get in restaurants are frozen, and I can tell the difference between those and the ones made from real, fresh potatoes.

I have a son living in Portland, OR, and along with many wonderful beers, every single restaurant I've ever gone to there has real fries.

Oh, and I don't happen to like catsup (or ketchup) on my fries. I sometimes put it on a burger, but that's it.

I went for several years without using that condiment at all, and I think that the recipes may have changed over time because when I next put some on a burger, I was put off by how incredibly sweet it was. I hadn't recalled it as being cloyingly sweet.

23. Exactly. And I learned the trick. You cook them until soft/done inside and then

take them out and cool. Heat the oil back up and throw them back in and
the brown and crisp up to perfection.

Have always wanted to go to one of the Belgian restaurants in DC or NY - because
theirs are supposedly the best.

with mustard, right?

51. As in how much not much longer?

I happen to be a huge fan of my home made fries, and I honestly have never had any that are better, anywhere. Of course, I could invite myself over to your house for ones made with the two step process to compare, yes?

In any case, real home made fries made with real fresh potatoes are the best. As I said above, I live in a city where I can tell the fries are almost always made from frozen processed potatoes, and they are meh. When I visit my son in Portland, OR, I'm totally blown away by the quality of the fries. Heck, even if they're not that well done they're from REAL POTATOES!

82. Yes! That is the best way. They have a place here in Boston called Saus

where they do Belgian fries and you can get numerous different kinds of condiments/sauces to go with them.

They are so much better than fries using the one step process.

71. Or make a variation of French fries by roasting small wedges

Of potatoes, brushed with olive oil. Adding fresh rosemary and galic optional. From travel to southern Europe, I prefer alioli, but ketchup is good as well.

that I'll move there, so he can take care of me in my old age.

I will say, that when I've visited he takes me to different restaurants every time we go out, which I appreciate. Also, I have had absolutely the best New England clam chowder I've ever had in Portland. Two different trips, two different restaurants. OMG! The main reason not to move there is that I'd quickly weigh about 300 pounds if I lived there.

43. For a while some catsup brands had high fructose corn syrup in them

I'm not sure about the others, but Hunt's catsup stopped using HFCS a few years ago. Before they advertised that the catsup was HFCS free, I'd stopped buying theirs and was getting the store brand because both were equally too sweet. I picked up some of the HFCS free Hunt's and it made a big difference - instead of being cloyingly sweet, there was more of a sweet-sour balance.

So you might try checking labels and try a catsup that is HFCS free and see if the flavor is better.

54. You won't believe who was a "fool"

Danny Meyer's Shake Shack chain sells a product called the "Shack-cago Dog." His original condiment plan included ten toppings: pickles, tomatoes, onions, sport peppers, relish, celery salt, ketchup, mustard, and cucumber. The one on the menu has no ketchup or lettuce.

He also planned a "New York" dog that never made it to the menu; it was supposed to have sauerkraut, redonian relish, tomato, onions, ketchup and mustard.

47. Yep. I grew up not liking pork roast.

My dad : "you better cook that pork or you'll get trichinosis"

Everything was over cooked. My mom's hamburgers were lovingly called "hockey pucks." But my parents grew up in a time where that stuff killed people.

It wasn't until my neighbor moved in and would invite us over for pork roast. At first I was like mmm, no thanks. Now I'm like hells yeah!!

Of course, now everything old is new again. Trichinosis in New York from uncooked meat. The bed bugs my parents used to joke about "sleep tight don't let the bed bugs bite" are back. With a vengeance.

Maybe I should go back to placing my coat on the back of movie theater seats so as not to get ring worm. Just like mom used to make us.

A good steak needs nothing other than salt, especially if it is extra rare, the way I like it. And if it is not a good steak, there is no point in eating it.

I'll put A-1 in my meatloaf when mixing it and I like to put a layer of A-1 and catsup on top - I love the way the mixture tastes when it is cooked that way.

53. In a breakfast situation: steak and eggs, hashbrowns, tomato slices.

The eggs and hashbrowns need a little ketchup (not the gross corn syrup stuff, though) and the steak is not at all offended by this.

56. I don't understand food snobs

Eat whatever you want how you want. I like ranch on my steak. I hate steak sauce. A1 is crap. And I like my steak well done but not burned. My brother is a butcher and I get the most tender steak from him. I guess I don't see the issue here.

64. I have a friend who puts catsup on almost everything.

Picture this: Eggs done over easy and a couple of slices of bacon. Then watching him put catsup on the over easy eggs then start mashing it all up before eating it. I will be nice and not tell you what I think it looks like.

67. Horseradish

I put it on as a kid probably because my Dad and Grandpa did. I didn't/don't like the taste of plain steak. Is horseradish part of British culture?

68. Love me some ketchup

Has to be Heinz. I like a little (well-done) burger with my ketchup. Patiently waiting for DH to get un-busy long enough to get out the grill for the season for the usually round of hockey pucks. And Oscar Mayer Smokie Links (yum!)
The *only* think I agree with Dolt 45 is that (for me) steak or any meat should be thoroughly cooked. It's my PA Dutch heritage and I just don't like the taste of rare meat. Ketchup on steak? No. A splash of Worcestershire is perfect.

69. My ex used to put catsup on EVERYTHING

It was horrible. I began to hate to prepare a meal because I knew it would be slathered in catsup. Eww.

73. Your position is 50% correct.

Ketchup (or catsup, if you swing that way) on a steak is ridiculous.

Ketchup on a hotdog is perfectly fine and acceptable. I mean, it's a hot dog. It ain't fine dining. And if you ask me, the sweetness of the ketchup acts as a perfect counterbalance to the saltiness of the dog.

People who insist ketchup on a hotdog is somehow some sort of abomination are as bad as the folks who claim iced tea can't be sweetened.

74. That's only the start of it.

He takes a perfectly good aged $50 New York strip, and orders it well-done. In other words, cooked until all the proteins are fully denatured. Until it goes "clank" on the plate. He likes hockey pucks with ketchup.

Seriously, you NEVER have a good steak cooked well done. Proper steaks are cooked rare. The objective is to restore the body temperature of the cow, so you have that true carnivorous experience.

79. De gustibus.

There's no arguing over tastes.

Older than the Heinz-variety catsup is Hunts. A lot of people use A-1. They're similar but different. Both are basically unreformed catsup--they include tomatoes and something sour as well as fish.

But catsup used to routinely have anchovies in it. Used to have mushrooms in it, at least in some kinds.

Worcestershire sauce is true to even older varieties of ketchup. The recipe kept morphing, easier when it was home-made or home-brewed than when it became the object of large corporations, patents, trademarks, and media campaigns.

It all started off as fermented rice & fish sauce. I have Vietnamese fish sauce in my pantry, next to the Hunts, A-1, Worcestershire sauce, and even the stuff much, much closer to the original S. Chinese stuff, Vietnamese fish sauce.

The word's apparently traceable back to a Hokkien word. That's a variety of Chinese that's been under extreme pressure from Mandarin over the last 400 years. It's not extinct, far from it, but it's probably got a limited life-span given the imperialism and push for assimilation that is PC in some countries.

81. Saddest thing about his eating disorders

is that any old hunk of meat "well done" would probably taste "better" with catsup.
The lsos, in all likelihood orders a primo Filet Mignon burnt for him and he needs the catsup to replace the juices .
I hope smart chefs substitute a cheap shoulder cut or such when he orders and saves the prime meat for themselves.
