My wife made some steaks yesterday. We have always in the bast broiled them, but this time she seared them on the stove. They were pretty good.
But she put gravy on them. I thought this was weird. But she said she had gravy on steak all the time as a kid. I always thought of steak as being something you eat either with a sauce (Here I distinguish betweena “sauce” and a “gravy” as follows: a “gravy” is made from the metled fat of the meat. A sauce is not) or with nothing on it at all.
My question is: Is it usual to put a gravy on a steak? (Other than a Chicken Fried Steak, of course.) Or rather, is it unusual?
Whatever the answer to the question is, it turned out to be damn good. And all she added to anything was a little salt and pepper. I was very suprised by this.
