My Love Affair With Worcestershire Sauce [moved from Home Cooking]

My love affair began when I was a child. My Grandparents and Mother used this 'Miracle' Sauce just about on and in everything. I remember when my Mother made her famous breakfast and poured WS all over, my taste buds just began to sing.

Curries, Stews, Vegetable Juices, Poultry, Beef, Fish...I mean even some crazy combos got the sauce. Crispy Bacon and Banana Sandwiches with WS poured over went down so nice.

I cannot ever remember the cupboards being without this sauce and now I carry on this addictive tradition. I even carry it with me when I travel because I really like the English-Based, Lea and Perrins (Had to edit Crosse and Blackwell-did not mean them). The rest appear as poor imitations imo.

Just felt like sharing...Good Eating to you all.

  1. I don't put anything else on steak. I buy Lea & Perrins, but once tried a store brand to save money. I swear they took real Worcestershire, diluted it on-to-one with water, and rebottled it! Never again.

    1. I'm with you on this one, I've loved the stuff since I was a kid and it's the number ONE staple condiment in my pantry!

      1. It's a key ingredient in my version of spaghetti sauce (which kind of resembles a virgin bloody mary).

        I experiment with it occasionally by using it as a substitute for fish sauce in Asian recipes.

        1. Marinated steaks in Worcestershire. Nothing like it. My friends kids were hooked on A-1 on everything and they ate at my house alot. One night they had killed the bottle and when dinner rolled around and I found the bottle empty I mixed worcestershire., ketchup and Badia complete seasoning. Lots of Worcestershire. They never ate A-1 at my house again. They asked me to make the secret Suzi sauce. Nothing like A-1, but tasty.

          1. Don't use it as a strict condiment that much, but 'Wooster' sauce and little dry white wine goes in everything but Pecan Pie, Peach Cobbler, Buttermilk Pie, Banana Puddin, Corn bread, biscuits......well you get the idea.
