Been with DP a year, happily cohabiting. Cooked him his favourite tonight, steak - not the first time I've cooked it for him.

Imagine my dismay and disgust when he mixed tomato ketchup and mayo and dipped in his perfectly cooked medium rare steak.

I must have look appropriately horrified as he said 'what?! It's been a year now so I feel I can do this in front of you'.

Can I LTB?

Meh, it's Marie Rose sauce. You'd have it with a surf and turf, he just didn't have the surf.

its all downhill from here! i am so sorry this has happened to you flowers

Hmm so basically like a Marie Rose sauce? Doesn't sound toooo awful in theory ... I enjoy it on prawns. Not sure I would waste a steak on it?

peppatax Tue 12-Jul-16 19:50:09

I could have accepted him dipping the surf but not the turf hmm

Yeah OP - waft do you mean if you don't even know that this is a classic chef's recipe?

confused

Mmm, that sounds rather nice actually.

Ditch him. Before long he'll be sitting in a chair in a string vest watching match of the day and drinking special brew.

That is fucking awful. It's all been based on lies so far, whatever will rear its ugly head next?

VanillaSugar Tue 12-Jul-16 19:51:13

Tut tut OP - he is right.

peppatax Tue 12-Jul-16 19:51:20

I suppose I feel misled - even he knew it was wrong and admitted he wanted to wait until he knew I really loved him before I saw him do it

Steak plus marie rose sauce = heaven. Try it.

Your husband is one of the enlightened few, it seems.

Isn't that what Burger Sauce is?

VanillaSugar Tue 12-Jul-16 19:52:25

LTB he deserves better.

Is that the reaction you're after? (Lighthearted)

My dh smothers tomato ketchup over his steak and peas. That's how he likes it.

Not me eating it

MissElizaBennettsBookmark Tue 12-Jul-16 19:52:45

Utterly disgusting.

French mustard for me grin

BlueberryJuice Tue 12-Jul-16 19:54:02

LTB! Only peppercorn sauce should be served with steak, your dp is a loon and should be shot

TheUnsullied Tue 12-Jul-16 19:54:43

You should definitely try it. Not with really good quality steak as it'd ruin it but it's a good match for middle of the road steak.

peppatax Tue 12-Jul-16 19:55:47

Right, okay, wow. Split opinion. (Stops packing bags).

I've decided we can make a go of it. He says he doesn't do it in restaurants so I just won't cook steak at home anymore grin

cuntinghomicidalcardigan Tue 12-Jul-16 19:56:27

That sounds tasty! My dh on the other hand... he has to have his steak well done. It's a travesty.

MoodyOne Tue 12-Jul-16 19:57:14

Oh my god my thing to do is have chips and do a squirt all over of mayo then a squirt all over of ketchup !!
It's in the same category as crisp sandwiches and jam and cheese sandwiches , who knows who came up with them all but they are amazing !!

peppatax Tue 12-Jul-16 19:58:18

Well done? Sweet Jesus. At least it was cooked to his liking.

MoodyOne Tue 12-Jul-16 19:58:38

Tho my other half puts ketchup on his Sunday dinner OVER YORKSHIRE PUDDINGS ABD GRAVY TOO! I mean who does that (he doesn't anymore)

peppatax Tue 12-Jul-16 19:59:55

MoodyOne I can live with the chips. It was all over the steak

ItsaTenfromDen Tue 12-Jul-16 20:00:41

anyone who has ketchup in my house, in whatever form, has to deal with their own plate. Yuck. smile
