Ketchup in Pho, now that's some gourmet food right there.

It must be since I've never heard of it. At 165 pounds, I'm not an expert.

I generally forgo condiments. The exceptions are most hot sauces and mustard that isn't "yellow".

Why no horseradish? I love horseradish. Horseradish is an urban battle cruiser compared with mayonnaise. :wink:

If you regularly eat ketchup on meat, then you deserve neither. If your meat is so bland that you need to put a flavorful, vinegar-laden tomato sauce on it, then you need new meat.

Only communists and homosexuals put ketchup on hotdogs.

Mustard is the king of condiments!
All hail mustard!

:lol:
My pathological hatred of mayonnaise (mayonnaise to AMJ) probably precludes me from ever becoming fat enough to be an expert. I abhor mayonnaise in all of its forms. I detest aioli. Salmon mousse is for the birds. Lobster mayonnaise is an abomination unto the Lord. Mayonnaise and bologna is the sign of the low normal, the man condemned by his own choices to a mundane existence. "Mayonnaise and white bread" was the insult used to condemn a sweeping swath of humanity in my happy childhood home.

That said I do like a good tuna fish sandwich. So I guess that shows a touch of hypocrisy, even if I do use Miracle Whip. By definition, faux mayonnaise must be worse.
Mayonnaise is not a condiment in a tuna fish sandwich---it is an architectural element, like the mortar in brick building which will always be a brick building, never a mortar building. It's OK. Really. It's OK.

I gained 60lbs after discovering the versatility of mayonnaise.

Hot sauce is my current favorite cause Mayo was leading to me to an early death

Hot sauce, hands down

But no mention of BBQ sauce breaks my heart

BBQ Sauce is very much like Gravy - a hotly contested food group unto itself. This is most likely why it has yet to be mentioned as a "Condiment".

What? So what are we talking here? Do BBQ Sauce and Gravy transcend mere 'condiment' status, a glorified condiment, as it were? Or do they defy mere condiment status and are unto a type and category of their own? I might contend that they are transcendent; existing apart from and not subject to the limitations of mere condiment status.

Deep-Fried Mayo

This is why we can't have nice things.

A mild, creamed horseradish is nice with corned beef, prime rib, and also steak (sometimes).
