Ok, I'll bite. What is HP sauce?

An A1 type sauce but more ketchupy.

Raw and grilled tuna (ahi) is a staple here in the middle of the Pacific.
Mmmm . . . I love poke, I've never had better than when we were on the Big Island.  Do you make it?  And have a recipe you care to share? :)

I usually just make ahi sashimi.  I make up a nice strong wasabi-shoyu dipping sauce. That is my favorite. 

A 90 minute marinate in a honey-wasabi-shoyu sauce and a flash on the grill is awesome too.

Ahi poke (pronounced ah hee po kay) is ubiquitous here.  Every supermarket sells 50 different kinds of poke. There are even kaukau wagons that sell it on the roadside.  As many ways to make it as there are mangos in Puna.  I usually buy it already made.

I don't know what's happening here, but it seems like suddenly every restaurant out here is adding a poke to the menu and I freaking love it. The local Korean sushi restuarant has a not poke poke on the menu that I love with crisped wontons.

Give me more, let me quit a Broadway play from mercury poisoning cause I will eat it up.

Plus, a seared tuna loin.. one of the best foods ever!

Just kidding.  It's a sauce that's on the table in British pubs like catsup is on tables here in the US.  I can't imagine having shepard's pie without some HP sauce on it. Works well on fish and chips too.  HP stands for Houses of Parliament, not "The Boy Who Lived."

Ok, now it's running out of the corner of my mouth and down the side of my chin . . . I could eat that every day.  For every meal.  So good.  I'm going to have to make some, it's not everywhere here the way it is there.

Btw, there's a restaurant here called Pau Hana.  i have yet to try it, but I need to fix that soon.

Ah, interesting. Is it worth picking up a bottle? I've never eaten shepard's pie with any kind of sauce on it.

The stuff is awesome, and an essential ingredient to a bacon sandwich. Although, I'd go for worcester  sauce on a shepherds pie instead.

+1 to that, although I generally use a pretty liberal hand with it while cooking the shepherds pie, so not as much maybe needed later.

Another note on Worcestershire, the offbrands (at least in the states) taste like garbage.  You can buy name brand ketchup and offbrand ketchup and be underwhelmed by the difference, but the off-brand (non Lea and Perrins) worcestershire sauce I've tasted, well, I threw the stuff out, and that's saying something because I hate wasting food!

ONLY Lee and Perrins will do. There is no alternative that even comes close.

Does HP sauce taste better if you pronounce it "Hātch Pee" sauce instead of "Ātch Pee" sauce? :)

No. Quite the reverse

Soup.

Was at an off road/hunting lodge this weekend (5 gallon corny evaporated) and everyone brought some food. I brought a huge veggie with dip platter, so did someone else..... so I took half of it home. Took one of the containers with turkey broth from thanksgiving out of the freezer, dumped the veggies in there, a pint of ale, and grilled and sliced some sweet italian sausage.


Hmmmm, good.  8)

Annie's makes a vegetarian worcestershire that is quite good. perfect for ceaser salads when you aren't craving the anchovy goodness.
