eating etiquette (how to eat...)

Grilled Meat, Steak

Certain kinds of meat are never eaten with your fingers.

Table manners for eating grilled meats. At an informal barbecue, hamburgers, hot dogs, ribs, and pieces of chicken are most enjoyed when eaten with the fingers. Sausages without buns are eaten with a knife and fork, as are fish, and steak.

Table manners for eating steak. Don't smother steak with steak sauce, especially when dining in a good restaurant. If you use a sauce, pour a small pool next to the steak and dip each forkful of meat before eating.
