Nicki Minaj – Bad Steak Taste?

Musical sensation – and new “American Idol” judge Nicki Minaj visited a steakhouse in Hollywood last night and faux pasd all over the place.

Or did she? You tell me.

The Nickster sent someone out to fetch her some A.1. Steaksauce for her tasty steak.

In a nice restaurant. In Hollywood. California.

Is that tacky? Or is it just having her steak the way she wants it?

I, personally, do not care at all how anyone eats their steak. You enjoy that bad boy the way you like, I say.

But, chefs are notoriously offended by the addition of outside steak sauces.

So . . .  did she fall down in the etiquette department or do you subscribe to the “live and let live” notion?

Nicki, just know that if you had enjoyed that steak at home no one would be the wiser.

Just sayin.

Steak Etiquette

Is it okay to ask for steak sauce at a steakhouse?

Does it insult the chef if you order your steak well done? (Well, that’s why I like my steak at home – I never insult myself. But that’s another story.)

These steak questions and more are answered by celebrity chef Bobby Flay in this enlightening video (click on photo).

Click here for video. Then go cook a steak at home – where no one will judge you. Well, except maybe the cat.
