About the ingredient worcestershire sauce. Including 1,491 recipes with worcestershire sauce, nutrition data, and where to find it.



Worcestershire sauce is a fermented liquid condiment flavouring used especially with grilled or barbecued meats. It is also used in cocktails and drinks.

The ingredients of a traditional bottle of Worcestershire sauce sold in the UK as "The Original & Genuine Lea & Perrins Worcestershire sauce" are malt vinegar (from barley), spirit vinegar, molasses, sugar, salt, anchovies, tamarind extract, onions, garlic, spice, and flavouring.

The "spice, and flavouring" is believed to include cloves, soy sauce, lemons, pickles and peppers.

Worcestershire sauce is primarily used to flavour meat dishes. It can be used as steak sauce, and is sometimes added to chili con carne.

Vegetarian and gluten free alternatives are available and some Worcestershire sauce powders are marketed as suitable for vegetarians. Vegetarian varieties omit anchovies, producing a sauce which is similar, although not considered a variety of Worcestershire sauce.
