I haven't had a bad one bad steak there yet, just the opposite, they have all been very tasty. Personally, other than Filet Mignon, I would rather season and cook my own steak.



I agree with seasoning and cooking my own.

Having worked at the WalMart DC at one time, I would say that I would probably buy the meat from WalMart if I made a habit of shopping there. I don't, though, we have Kroger around here and one other really good more local mini-chain, so I stick to those.

If I had to say anything, I would just say to stay away from the produce at WalMart unless you seriously inspect it. The same stuff I saw probably goes on anywhere, granted, but at least I can pretend by shopping elsewhere.

EDIT: No, screw inspecting it, just stay away from it. I'll just say that I have some idea as to how produce manages to get infected with salmonella.

just out of curiosity, what kind of sauce, if any, do you guys use when you're eating your steaks?

Ketchup.

Joking! If it's a good steak and still pink, usually nothing. If it's over medium or a lower quality cut I like cheap off brand steak sauce over A1 for some reason. Heinz 57 sauce is good too, very different, and very love it or hate it.

It's always fun to order a few ounces of Kobe steak at a high end place and ask for some Heinz 57. I just love the look of disdain people give me.

I grill my steaks a with a glaze made of teriyaki sauce,maple syrup and melted butter. No additional sauce after cooking.
When eating out, I'll use Peter Luger sauce if available, or Heinz steak sauce.

Ketchup?
Steak Sauce?

First of all, ketchup is a word derived from Arabic. Originally ketchup had absolutely no sugar in it at all. A good ketchup should have no sugar even to this day.

Steak sauces that have sugar are worthless. Its best to taste the steak, not the sauce.

Every salesman is told 'sell the Sizzle not the Steak'. So the disdain of a waitress is good entertainment because all she deals with is the sizzle.

Just season it before cooking, no sauce for me.

I will never get why people add A1 to their steak, it only masks the taste IMO. Ketchup on steak? To each their own.



I didn't even care for steak until my late 20's. That's probably because we really could not afford it, and I was not really exposed to it. I only started eating it because all the people I played with in vegas loved going to nice steakhouses with their comps( we had comps coming out the yin-yang back then). I don't like fish or seafood, except for shrimp and prawns, lobster is disgusting to me. So I started ordering steak diane or I would put the steak on my salad with ranch dressing. I didn't like it without some kind of sauce. Now I love steak and eat it all the time, anything but prime rib. Nowadays no sauce for me, just a small amount of seasoning, a little garlic salt works just fine.

for many years i had to stay away from steak, it was hard for me to digest. just recently i tried cutting a very good steak into strips like they do with a philly steak and cheese and then cooking and it worked. if you put it in the freezer for a few minutes it firms up so it's easier to cut. i fried it in extra virgin olive oil and margarine and cooked it on a very low heat setting slowly and covered. it came out very tender and easy for me to get down. i was generous with the oil and margarine and it made a tasty sauce when i poured it over the strips. i like the idea of adding a tiny bit of teriyaki sauce in the pan and also some of the juice from cooked mushrooms. that i will try next time. i recently saw a documentary about olive oil and i learned that it's a really, really big deal in italy. which is the highest quality, has the best taste,, etc. like wine is here and elsewhere. my wife cooks beef ribs which are very high quality meat in a slow cooker for 4 hours with potatoes and some water and of course her seasonings and when they come out they're so tender you can cut them with a spoon. i'm not exaggerating. you can literally cut them with a spoon.
