since we're talking about sauces and stuff, I might as well add one to the list. :)

Now THERE's a nice, hearty American sauce.  I'd like to hear its' oozings when I spread it over a juicy DGIII-2005.
 (Okay, maybe I tried and went a little TOO far to try and put it back OT ;))

Nice to have you back, Dan!  --We're Idiots without ye!

Marmite (and vegemite) sound as appetising as haggis.

And what's wrong with haggis?!?

hehe, okay, this whole discussion went by me :) *Doc shakes his head slowly* Ah.. kids... I should have stopped you
and gave you all some icecream many a post ago :)

Anyway, I don't recognize any of the sauces you mentioned here, but I'm pretty sure we have some kind of version of
them here too :) hehhe my personal favourite is mayonaise and soy sauce.. not together of course :) Oh yeah and I
AM a veggy, so steak sauce I rarely use :) even though it DOES taste good!

Cheers,
Janez

I'm more of a ketchup and profil supprimé on a cheeseburger kinda guy. ;)



Say, dan? maybe you should rename this thread to "world food"

Then open a new one that we have to sign a waiver not to pollute with garbage. :(

I might mention that you remind me now, of the greatest food in the world:


Balogna (or balonee, if you want to pronounce the thing)


I liked cotto salami too until I realized it had beef hearts in it. :sick:

Oh, and that's a problem? :).. Well there are sausages (don't know the english word) that have pig blood in them..
And then you have a food made of fried chicken livers and hearts.. Hearts are actually good, but I never cared for the
liver. Then you have people eating bull's balls... supposed to be really good. Horses... cats... damn even frogs and
snails are too much for me...

Sheesh.. no wonder why I can't eat meat anymore..

So THAT'S what balonee means???? I always wanted to know how baloney came to be a name for a salami :) What
kind of meat is in it then, any extras?

Here in Germany we have liver sausages and blood sausages. The liver sausage is more a liver pasty. Its consistency is like butter which was just brought out of the fridge (well, maybe a bit softer :)). It's only a bit, well... granulary! :)

Hmm, I quite understand you. Eating anything that consists of hearts, brains, blood etc. makes me sick :sick:

I like Currywurst!!!! On a school trip to Köln (can't spell it the English way!) I had it. It's basically sliced Bratwurst with
curry sauce on. It was beautiful!!!!!!!

Darn, now I'm hungry!

BTW: German food rocks! [sarcasm] Aren't I patriotic :) [/sarcasm]

Anyone seen the movie, Super Size Me? That really opens your eyes towards fast food.

To be honest, one of my favourite foods is Shepards Pie. Hmmm.

hehe, Free HEARTS is a problem and LIVER-wurst is not :)

hehe, I will never understand meat-eaters :)

And some will say: cows is okay, but horses NO! It's a HORSE for chrissake.. or rabbit is okay, but a housecat,
WHAT'S WITH YOU, MAN? How can you even think of eating such a little cuddly cute cat..? -- oh and the rabbit ain't
little cuddly cute? :)

Hypocrites :) (no offense to anyone around here, I just find people who blurt out something like that.. well.. dumb)

Either eat everything or don't eat any at all, I saw.. And while we're on the subject, do catch and kill and gut and
prepare your food as well :) I killed a chicken when I was a kid and ate it.. fish of course, but nothing else, so I'm also
guilty as charged. I bet most people would opt not to eat meat again if they had to even once start from scratch like
that. Then again, some might find estethic pleasure doing it, right Free? :)

ehem...


well, I'd probably become a vegitarian if I had to do all the gutting and crap myself.

I could probably make balogna though.

Well, If you wanted to make it en masse, yeah, but just for myself, it wouldn't be too hard.

If I remember correctly, balogna is made from already processed and slightly rotted meat, with the really bad parts
cut off, and mixed with lots of spices and stuff.

Not rotten as in decomposing, just definatley not fresh, you know? it's like just letting something sit out in the sun for
a few hours.

Well, I don't mean that it's Literally been outside in the sun for a few hours...

more like it's been in the freezer for a year or so...

but in any case, not inedible, but not really enjoyable as is.

and a joke recipe for beef jerky in the famous "earthbound" video game was:

take dried beef, string it to a clothesline for 6 months, and enjoy. :)

And then there is the lowly hotdog (frankfurter) ....

If you saw how it was made, you'd never touch them again.  Their natural colour is grey.  They require a lot of dye to make
them appear as if they are actually meat.

Another nice touch is the article that appeared in America's National Geographic Magazine, sometime back.  Apparently they
were doing an archeological dig in a garbage dump in New Jersey (Americans, feel free to comment). As they dug down through
this midden, they discovered a hotdog at about the 1956 level.  The thing was still firm and pliable and had appeared to have
not decomposed at all.

Balogna (Baloney is the standard North American mispronunciation) has a number of names in Canada, of which Newfie Steak is probably the most favourite. (Newfie is a contraction for an inhabitant of the province of Newfoundland (or a descendent thereof), a people with a reputation in this country (however undeserved) for backwardness, poverty, questionable intelligence, etc, though in fact they are much loved, though somewhat quaint. Similar to how Americans portray their cousins from the hillcountry of the state of Tennesee.).
