Off the back of my butter and sauce thread,, I had a sanga from my local meat pie shop today that had egg, lettuce, mayo, salt and pepper on buttered white bread... and it was delicious.
See, that sounds pretty good -- sans mayo, for me :) - Jennifer Dittrich
Last night I learnt that Americans don't usually like sauce on their steak... Or butter the bread in a sandwich... Is this true?
Yes to both - for me, anyway. Had quite a shock learning what a bacon butty was. - Jaclyn aka spamgirl
So if I made a tomato sandwich (white buttered bread with sliced tomato and a little salt) would this get me weird looks? - Johnny from iPhone
i make tomato sandwiches like that with mayonnaise instead of butter. - kendrak
If the steak is a really good cut of meat, and it's cooked & seasoned properly, then I won't use any sauce. But I have a hard time believing Americans don't like sauce on their steak - what's your definition of sauce? Barbecue, Worcestershire sauce, or...? As for buttering the bread in a sandwich, I don't know that you'd get weird looks, but you might if you buttered your bread then added another condiment, such as mayonnaise. - Corinne L
Do you aussies have miracle whip for meat and cheese sandwiches? - Joe
Corinne... I do. Bread and butter is the base then stuff like mayo gets added on. Joe, no. - Johnny from iPhone
The steak thing doesn't sound right to me, at least for the south and midwest. It's pretty rare to not see someone putting A1, BBQ sauce, Tabasco, or somesuch on their steak, if it comes without a sauce. Also, you do your sandwiches like Uli does. But no, I don't know any Americans who use butter as the base. We tend to start with mayo, mustard, ketchup, and/or pickle relish, depending on the sandwich. - Kirsten
We usually use just mayo by itself - either one provides a good fat barrier (so the bread doesn't get soggy from other ingredients.) The sauce thing isn't uncommon, but it doesn't feel like something everyone does one way or the other. I prefer it without in most cases, but like it sometimes. - Jennifer Dittrich
Depends on the cut. I like some A1 or worcester sauce on sirloin. Mayo and mustard for sandwiches. - Rodfather
I would have said that no sauce is the usual. - Steele Lawman
Don't tell anyone else, but I like to put ketchup (or catsup) on my steak. - Joe
Most sandwich places will put in butter only if you ask for it. - Bruce Lewis
A sandwich is a butter delivery system. No butter and it's not a proper sandwich! - Marina's Godmother :-)
Oh see, Helen, that's butter-bread (as it's called in my family, at least). A snack, sure. But not a sandwich. - Kirsten
Buttered bread for sandwiches: Rare, I think (certainly not for me--horseradish sauce or chipotle, depending on the meat). Sauce on steaks: All over the place, but the better the steak, the less likely the sauce, at least for me. - Walt Crawford
My ex-husband was a butter-then-mayo sandwich person until I said to him, "do you realize you're adding a lot of calories doing it that way?" Never crossed his mind because it was the way he was raised (he was from central Pennsylvania & his mom was Pennsylvania Dutch, which may have had a lot to do with it). - Corinne L
I don't generally put butter on sandwiches (unless it's the outside of a grilled cheese sandwich). Usually it's mustard or the like, depending on the other sandwich contents. I don't generally have sauce with steak unless the steak is really dry or tough. I will eat butter on toast or on bread that I eat alongside a meal. - John (bird whisperer)
I'm convinced that this is why a true Aussie restaurant/cafe in the States wouldn't work. There are tiny fundamentals that would shock a lot of folks but the culture isn't exotic enough for people to embrace it. - Johnny
my mom used to put butter underneath the mayo but then she started worrying even more about dad's health. <threadjack> had a "club" sandwich in UAE in a British bar. so not what I had in mind. It was weird and disappointing. - Christina Pikas
A bacon-based sandwich in the UAE? - Johnny
Johnny, I think you could have an authentic cafe, but not a chain restaurant. Those, by nature, smooth out the edges of any cuisine (even American dishes) so it isn't quite what it started as. - Jennifer Dittrich
oh yeah there and Bahrain - not really observant. when I was there. - Christina Pikas
What Jenn said. Americans love to claim they have had authentic [insert cuisine type here] at some obscure restaurant. - Corinne L
I now butter my sandwiches but that's because I'm attached to someone of British extraction. - Sarah from iPhone
I just looked up the menu for Outback Steakhouse. I literally can't. - Johnny
Oh, yeah. I can't imagine that's anyone's native cuisine. - Jennifer Dittrich
No bloomin onion? - Joe
No. - Johnny
Heh. I never really thought of Outback as a place to eat Australian cuisine. It's just where they give you a fat piece of steak and a huge gob of mashed potatoes. - Rodfather
The fact they have opened Outback Steakhouses here in Australia should tell you all you need to know ;) - Johnny
Heh, totally reminds me of the random Taco Bell restaurants you see in Mexico. - Jennifer Dittrich
I'm a mustard-only person when it comes to sandwiches, though as a child, my favorite sandwich was peanut butter and butter. When it comes to steaks - I guess I'd have to ask what your definition of steak sauce is. Are you talking like a brown sauce or a BBQ sauce? Or do you mean something like bordelaise or au poivre? Because depending on the type of cuisine under which I'm ordering my... more... - Hookuh Tinypants
I tend to marinade my steaks so they don't usually call for any sauce after the fact. But I haven't heard of buttering the bread of a sandwich...might have to try that >.> - Chris Topher
I might also clarify, it's only a small amount of butter. More like a scraping than a thick layer ala mayo - Johnny
I'm beginning to be a fan of rub. I used this stuff on some filet mignon and it was awesome. - Rodfather
#random The closest I got to Miracle Whip in London was "salad cream," but it's not the same. I do love me some HP Sauce, though. - The First NoeLB from Android
My favourite steak sauces are chilli and lime, mushroom, blue cheese, sweet chilli, creamy pepper sauce and sometimes sweet caramelised onion. If I have a good piece of steak then I tend to go plain but a good balanced sauce in combination with the sides can bring up the whole plate. - Johnny
OK so you're talking proper sauces and not just bottled crap made by Heinz. :D This is why I love you. - Hookuh Tinypants
We have that too, but that's usually only used on the cheap cuts that end up on steak sangas or at BBQs on plastic plates :) - Johnny
I still love you. - Hookuh Tinypants
Caramelized onion? Oh, yes! - The First NoeLB from Android
I never heard of butter and mayo together on a sandwich until this one time in Canada. I got off the 401 at a small town somewhere between Toronto and Detroit, found a small sandwich shop, and ordered a ham and cheese sandwich. She took a slice of bread, spread something pale colored on it, then asked me if I wanted mayo. !!! I'm thinking, that wasn't mayo? So I said yes, and then she added mayo on top on what turned out to be butter. - bentley
(silently judges Joe for the ketchup thing) - Marie
I put a patty of butter on my steaks as I grill them. I like sauce on my steak too but then I'm sorta addicted to mashed potatoes and gravy so its more collateral. #gravyoneverythng Butter with mayo is just weird. Butter or mayo slathered on heavy and thick.... #okaymaybeitsjustme - WarLord
I need Melly in on this thread #Alone - Johnny
Butter on a sandwich brings back some middle school memories from when I lived with my mother. She would pack me lunches of salami & cheese sandwiches with butter instead of some other normal type of condiment on it, because she doesn't like mayo or mustard and refuses to buy any. - April Russo
No to either one for me. Why ruin a good steak with sauce of any kind? People in this part of the country (Southeastern Pennsylvania) often butter their bread for sandwiches if they are from a Pennsylvania Dutch background. - Friar Will

RT @esthersorola: Bummer about "The Interview". Anyway, the human rights violations in N.Korea is kind of a bigger bummer so please support @LibertyinNK thx
RT @seanoconnz: North Korea just bought my screenplay "Kim Jung-un #1 Cool Sex Guy".
I was never going to watch The Interview but I'm now gonna buy and watch the DVD for the "fuck you". Sony has probably doubled potential $$$
Dear @DavidLeyonhjelm, We've already had the conversation. We're pretty happy with our decision. Thanks anyway.

If you ordered @CAH's Bullshit pack and are now genuinely upset that you got actual bullshit, ummmm really dude? It's CAH for fuck sake.
They also made it extremely clear that that's what you were going to get. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Even so, it's still CAH. Suspect everything :) - Johnny
I secretly hoped it was a joke, and I'd have something neat for younger brother for Christmas, which us why I ordered it. And when I got crap? oh well - of course I laughed! - ellbeecee
But still, those 30,000 pieces of bullshit are a very limited edition. Not sure anyone can ever pull that trick again. They will be a collectors item in a few years. - Johnny
What carrier was willing to ship that shit? - Eric - ill subliminal
They said it was sterilized so I would assume it would be safe to transport. Also that's why it was US/Canada only. I know from experience that any type of animal product is a pain in the ass to send cross borders. - Johnny
I'm guessing that might also be part of why it took them longer than expected to ship it out. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Sooooooo... Rockstar were basically just waiting for @AchievementHunt to plan all their heist for them before putting it into GTA:V.
Pretty much. - Chris Topher

If he was a "self proclaimed" Christian leader, we'd all call him a nutter and not blame other Christians... but here we are.
Queen Rania of Jordan just taught me the phrase "irreligious extremists". A perfect term.

RT @therealjedi: Not all Christians are the same. Not all Muslims are the same. Clearly what ever religion you follow, a fuckwit is still a fuckwit....
"Where's the condemnation from Muslim leaders????" *shows condemnation from up to 3 hours previous* "Well, doesn't matter. It doesn't help now, does it?"...
... and THAT is the level of critical thinking today. - Johnny

Someone is trying to point me to the ISnews22 twitter account... that has 66 followers... mostly spam bots... as proof. I'm done for the day. - Johnny

Being Australian, I sometimes lament not having a specific food ancestory or specialized dishes (family or community based) but my recent head-first dive into food culture makes me thankful I can easily swap between, and muddle together, the full spectrum of world cusine and my friends enjoy the ride just as easily.
Could explore Aboriginal cuisine? It's quite varied - Mo Kargas
Being half Finn I've gotten into Finn food, but like half if it involved pickled herring so.... Other than baked goods, Finn food isn't all that appealing. - Heather
Mo, I've dabbled in a few recipes but it's not easy to source a lot of the floral spices locally. Lots of mail order spice places are popping up online and getting them is getting easier. - Johnny from iPhone
I've never tried making the recipes myself, only had it provided to me by various bush communities. I can imagine the ingredients would be hard to find outside specialty shops. - Mo Kargas
