English Brown sauce is a commercial, bottled sauce. It is a thick, brown sauce that is like a slightly sweet, tangy steak sauce.

It is made from apples, prunes, onions, malt vinegar, and seasonings.

It is particularly popular with fried meats -- either bacon or ham for breakfast, or fried meats for suppers.

In North America, practically the only brand of brown sauce sold is HP, so it is just referred to as "HP Sauce." In the UK, however, there are many other brand names, such as Daddies, and all the supermarkets put out their own brand of brown sauce. Consequently, there it is more likely to be called "brown sauce." This also handily contrasts it nicely with the other bottled table sauce that is omnipresent in England, which is "red sauce" -- as in, tomato ketchup.

English brown sauce is very different from French brown sauce. See main entry on Sauces where French brown sauce is covered.

    Escargot had their heyday in the 1970s, when everyone ate them with garlic butter and bought the Escargot dishes for home use (but couldn't actually bring themselves to buy the slimy little critters for use in their own kitchen.) You may wish to finally try cooking up Escargot in garlic sauce in your own kitchen. Mind you, you could simmer golf balls in that sauce and they would taste good.
