Foods that require condiments to be palatable

Postby M-5 » Thu Oct 27, 2016 7:29 am

I do not have an aversion to condiments , I use mayo and mustard on sandwiches , Ketchup on HB and Hotdogs. Salsa On Mexican food and I even put A-1 on my baked potato . I do however think if the meat you are eating requires a sauce or condiment you really should learn to cook better or frequent better restaurants. GRAVY is not a sauce or condiment BTW

You are talking primarily about a good beef steak. Grilled on fire is best, salt, black or white pepper, maybe a touch of garlic butter, and it suits me fine.

I do like horseradish, mostly with prime rib.

x2, If you have to put sauce on your steak it aint much pumpkin although I do like to dip my prime rib in homemade au jus.

Them chicken pills were made for no reason other than keeping sauce off your fingers.

There are lots of things that need something to make them edible. Tofu and chicken come to mind, but I've never found anything that works on either of them. I'll admit I haven;t eaten tofu in 40-50 years but I doubt it's improved. I have tried chicken, but it still isn;t anything I would eat if given a choice.

They have chicken shaped like french fries at Burger King. They're called chicken fries.

I think you're looking at it wrong. It's not that some foods need condiments to be palatable, it's that they're better with them than without. To use HDRider's example, prime rib is certainly palatable with nothing on it except the seasoning added in the cooking process, but it's even better with some horseradish. French fries are palatable with nothing on them, but they're better with ketchup.

I can't think of anything that requires a condiment. Except mullet , requires at least a 12 pack

Baked potatoes become edible when smothered in Heinz 57 but be careful to not get any on your steak.

I can eat about any of the above mentioned without any condiments, but add condiments to enhance the taste. Mustard and onions on hot dogs. ketchup, lettuce and onion on cheese burgers. Butter on Bake tators, those I won't eat without something on them (so those I need something added to make them palatable). As a side note I like a slice of raw potatoe with just a little salt. Most fish need tarter sauce, but not required. No tarter for Salmon and Steelhead, just butter and pepper...maybe a touch of salt.
