um, any ideas?
preferably would like to avoid a trip out to gresham
in case you're curious as to why, i'm making sangrita for a tequila tasting. here's the recipe i got from a chap in mexico about 10 years back:
1L tomato juice
12oz orange juice
6oz lime juice
1.5oz maggi sauce
1.5oz inglesa sauce (worcestershire)
tabasco sauce - al gusto
sal y pimiento
By the worcestershire in the regular grocery. If not there, try a Mexican aisle or store. Or Asian, though I've heard there is a difference in the Asian formulation compared to the European one. Essentially it is hydrolyzed protein, msg, and coloring - a sauce flavor enhancer.
You should have no trouble finding it in the ethnic section of any grocery store. I've bought it before at safeway for micheladas.
I get it at Uwajimaya in the sauce isle. I love the stuff. Awesome on a bahn mi or in chicken adobo.
I buy the 27 oz size in any Asian grocery store. Tastes similar to small bottles from other stores to me!
