Oh, I am so there, next time I visit.
I believe HP sauce is closer to our A-1 sauce.
I am the only person I've ever known who uses Heinz 57 on fries, but I never ever use it on a steak.
I know shepherd's pie, but what the he!! is "cold meat salad?"
Why would one put Steak sauce on steak, it already tastes like steak??
With the invasion of Tennessee by Mid westerners, Texans and Northerners, tomato based BBQ "sauce" is available everywhere. It's the sauce not the BBQ, which is only the meat. I'm not against it. I just didn't know it growing up in Nashville.
I did have pulled pork in Alabama that was served with some kind of mayonnaise sauce.
Grew up in England and never saw anyone put HP sauce on chips. Now HP sauce on a bacon sandwich... best breakfast ever! But then again English bacon is a completely different thing than the fatty stuff here in the US!
Wow, three pages worth of impassioned posts in 16 hours, on a thread that had nothing at all to do with DODMERB, MOCs or CFA. So apparently, we on SAF are very passionate about SAs, ROTC and FOOD! Works for me.
This has indeed been one of my favorite "off topic" threads of the year!
Certainly the most appetizing.
Agreed. Bravo Zulu to @LurkingQuietly . Excellent post.
I can't agree with this - I am trying to lose a few pounds and all this food talk is killing me!
Since I'm responding, I'm in the no-ketchup-on-a-hotdog camp.
Here it is.
Stick Meat: Walking around in a foreign port during the day with cats everywhere. Later at night the cats are gone and vendors are cooking up some meat on a stick. In some places it is called monkey on a stick. Certainly it isn't really monkey, is it? What with all the cats having disappeared.
We’re sailors. We eat that stuff up. Literally. My rule of thumb was, “I’ll try anything once, but do not tell me what it is before I eat it.”
We need to go back to hot dogs, because some memories just popped up about some things I ate per rule above and the gleeful faces of people as they told me what it was.
So it really wasn't just a faulty memory.
No, it's real. A couple years ago my son and I met up in B'ham and went to the Bama/10erSee game. While waiting in the airport to fly home, I picked up a shot glass for my daughter's collection and a bottle of Alabama White Sauce for my wife. She was not impressed.
I didn't even try it. I thought it was runoff from the coleslaw.
And don't get me started on creamy coleslaw.
That sparks memories of a port visit to Athens - our only liberty port during a 6 month Beirut float. A few of us took a trip well out of the city into non-english speakingville and were having a "Mixed Grill". Sadly, another diner who did speak our language filled us in AFTER we'd eaten most of our meal.
Ugh...oldest DS studied abroad in Beijing and he LOVED to eat cheap off of the street vendors....."shudder."
I ate dog once. Same sort of thing. Found out after ingestion. It was pretty good.
We always referred to meat on a stick as catch of the day.
