If there’s one rule I follow, one single mantra I adhere to come hell or high water, it’s this: Never skimp on the condiments.
That’s right. Never cheap out on ketchup, mustard, soy sauce, mayonnaise, or steak sauce. Don’t low ball me with your bottom shelf salad dressing, pancake syrup, butter, or Worcestershire.
