    It's important to maintain a sense of proportion here. If you've just been served up a fine entree by Thomas Keller at the French Laundry, you'd be insane to start by reaching for the salt. On the other hand, if you've just been served a hot dog on a paper plate on someone's patio, there's nothing wrong with reaching for the mustard. And there are gradations in between.

    Considering someone a philistine because they apply steak sauce to steak seems rather extreme to me, but that's just me...

    there's a difference between liking steak sauce and DUMPING THE ENTIRE BOTTLE ON YOUR STEAK.

    Acknowledged. Still, it seems to me that if you don't like how I eat my steak, you have a personal problem.

    Agreed.

    And if you cook for yourself or you eat out, who cares. But if someone is cooking for you, I can see this viewpoint. While one is free to douse a steak in sauce if that's what one likes, it obliterates flavors that the person cooking is working hard to create. So you can see why the cook would not want to cook for this person again, or wouldn't take the time and cost to select good ingredients. It's like working hard to create a spectacular fireworks display and having someone shoot them off in the noonday sun.

    for steak it depends on how good it tastes, because i've had excellent steak that's like om nom nom that doesn't need anything. But on the other hand i've had steak that tasted like paper and was flavorless and that needed steak sauce, it just depends on the steak.

    I was offended at that lady in Chicago who put all that vegetable crap on my hot dog. Does that count?

    My GF's dad puts salt all over his food before he's even tasted it!

    I don't get offended though, I just think he's strange.
