On the recent Bombcast, Jeff declared that he puts ketchup on his steak, causing an outburst from Brad. Do you put ketchup on steak?

I did...when I was five years old and didn't know any better. I guess the one redeeming factor about ketchup is that it can mask the taste of low-rent ass meat, though.

Dude, everyone knows that mushroom sauce is the only sauce for steak!

I've never had a good steak ever.  I don't think they exist.  People just think they're good because they got that idea in their head from someone else.

Can't believe Jeff said that... A fellow big man.    Ketchup completely ruins everything that steak is meant to be.  Steak is savory, Ketchup is sweet.  Why Jeff... Why?!   Listen to Ryan.
I should go easy on him thoe.  Lawled like a mofo, when he quickly snapped "NO."  When asked if he saw the Daredevil movie.

Salt and pepper you don't need anything else, I think the any sauce detracts from the taste of the meat.....

If it's poorly cooked, maybe. Other than that? No.

I do when it's a mediocre steak. You cook brazing steak and chances are that thing is dryer than you would like.
Now give me a medium rare fillet steak of the highest order and no condiments are needed.

Some sort of thick, chunky tomato relish is alight, but ketchup would just ruin the steak.

the only sauce that should ever be put on steak is A-1, but only on bad dry steaks.

Hell to the NO, that sounds nasty and only on a burger and hotdog and frys and meatloaf, yes and I know steak is a form of meat but its different.

Ketchup on steak... might as well go all the way and put ketchup on your ice cream.

I've never actually done it myself and I think steak is fine without sauces but to be honest if you give me a bottle I'll put ketchup on just about anything.

I'm a vegetarian so i can't say anything about it. 
I do love me some ketchup though. 
I'm a large-scale consumer.

When I heard them talk about it on the bombcast I was like "why didn't I think of that!", so the next time I eat steak I'll be sure to try it with ketchup.  If it's good on a burger then why wouldn't it work with steak.

I avoid steak unless I am at an actual good steakhouse, and I don't think they would even allow you to ask for ketchup in those kind of places :P

I don't eat steaks, but back when I did, I put either some sauce on it or nothing. Ketchup on one doesn't appeal to me.

Oh, hell no!  I either rub my steaks with spices or make fresh mushroom sauce from the drippings to put over it. 
If you cook em right the juice that runs out when you cut it is all the sauce I need. (I cook mine to medium, which is an internal temperature of 160 Fahrenheit)

Everyone is entitled to their likes and dislikes. If Jeff likes to put ketchup on his steak then I don't see what's the big problem.  I think seafood is very disgusting but people still seem to eat it.

I very rarely do. Most of the time, it's because I've also had a side of something like french fries and there's a little extra ketchup left over on the plate. But my answer to the poll question is a resounding "it doesn't matter."
Now, if you want a real debate, ask how people pronounce it: Ketchup, or Catsup.

Hm, interesting. Next time we have steak I won't use ketchup, see if it's better.

I just straight up hate ketchup. Although, I eat my steak well done, I'm apparently an outcast due to this.

There's not much point to eating a well done steak, it'll be dry and not very tender. 
Also, they'll probably use a bad cut of beef, just because the cooking will mask its quality.

I think I may have done it when I was younger, but I wouldn't do it today. I've had a serious distaste for ketchup for a long time now.

I just put salt and pepper on my steaks, or a mushroom sauce. I like ketchup but I don't think it compliments a steak right.

The closest i got to something like that was putting ketchup on Church's chicken.  But ketchup does make a lot of things taste super good. I dont get Brad's fat ass not putting it on Hot Dogs.  Hot Dogs, fries, eggs, its all good bitches.

You could put A-1 on a shoe and it would taste fucking delicious.
