I have some pork tenderloins to broil with sweet potatoes baking right now. We'll round it out with a garden salad.

Brown sauce as I have always called it (HP Sauce) is an American product I think. But it has been over here ever since I can remember. The label actually has the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben on it so I guess we have truly adopted it!

That's what the HP stands for. House of Parliament Sauce. It is very common here in Canada also. Along the same lines as A1 steak sauce, but a bit tangy er.

HP Sauce is a brown sauce[1] originally produced by HP Foods in the UK, now produced by the H. J. Heinz Company in the Netherlands. It is the best-known brand of brown sauce in the United Kingdom in 2005 with 73.8% of the retail market in the UK.[2] HP Sauce has a malt vinegar base, blended with tomato, dates, tamarind extract, sweetener and spices.[3][4] It usually is used as a condiment with hot or cold savoury food, or as an ingredient in soups or stews.

I stand corrected! Thanks Rocklobster. Anyway, it's jolly nice with a sausage! (Also, a fried breakfast isn't really "proper" without a dollop on the plate.)

Are you sorry you asked?
Sounds good to me, I'm trying to visualize you plonking and dolloping your classic banger with a bit of panache!

I'm having a pork chop, sliced cucumber and cottage cheese.
