Once you've made this homemade sauce, you'll never buy bottled again. I had to guess on the serving size. (Note - if making vegetarian, use an anchovy-free Worcestershire sauce).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sauté onion and garlic in butter until limp.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and simmer on low heat for 2 hours uncovered while stirring occasionally.
  3. After reading a review, I made this today by chopping my onion in the food processor quite fine before sautéing. Wonderful, and less chunky. 10-21-07.

Wonderful sauce that I thought had a nice amount of spiciness without being too over the top. I used a little while cooking some beef and kangaroo for roti wraps and then used extra sauce in the wraps which worked terrifically. Rather than puree I went with a slightly chunky version by dicing the onion very finely.
