Grew up on Heinz 57 but been hooked on A-1 for many years now. But, a really good steak requires no additions. I still might use a little.

Great steaks require none. I don't know about other Asians, but I love my steak with either a salt-pepper and lime sauce (Asian style) or this fermented fish sauce that smells bad but taste delicious. I don't know how to translate it to english but it's definitely an acquired taste.

I like my steak a la diane - mushroom gravy

If I'm in a hurry it'll be worcestershire sauce on mine rather than steak sauce or ketchup

Interesting. the antique Romans were very fond of a very pungent fermented fish sauce called garum; evidently it's production involved smells so strong it's production was at times confined to the outskirts of cities.

When I was a kid I always put ketchup on my steak whenever we had it. However, I now prefer steak sauce.

A properly done steak needs no condiments....

But if one insists on having one - A-1 is pretty hard to beat!

I have to agree with this. If it is a really good steak then I don't need any sauce at all. If the steak is served with anything like mushroom sauce or bernaise then I will always ask for it on the side.
