The Best Worcestershire Sauce

I couldn't find any recipes for real Worcestershire Sauce on Zaar, so after using this one from, I thought I should do all Zaar fans a favor and post it here. You do not want to be without this in your fridge! My family all agreed that this easy recipe beats Lea & Perrins by a mile when it comes to flavor! TRY IT!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all ingredients except the sugar in a 2-qt. saucepan; boil. Reduce heat; simmer for 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, cook sugar in a skillet over medium-high heat until it becomes dark amber and syrupy, about 5 minutes. Add caramelized sugar to vinegar mixture and whisk to combine; cook sauce for 5 minutes; transfer sauce to a glass jar with a tight-fitting lid.
  3. Refrigerate, covered, for 3 weeks; strain to remove solids; return to jar. Refrigerate for up to 8 months.
  4. *Note* I have used this before the suggested 3 weeks with good results, though the flavor really seems to improve with time. I usually just pour the amount I need through a strainer so that I can leave all the spices in to continue adding flavor.

Delicious! My daughter was recently diagnosed with a soy allergy... who knew that soy is in almost all processed foods?!? Anyhow, I discovered coconut aminos which is an awesome soy sauce substitute! Used in this recipe with amazing results. This sauce is so full flavored you may want to adjust the quantity you use in your recipes. Thanks!

This recipe IS excellent. The sauce has a rich, full flavor; slightly sweet, but tangy and "Worscestershire-y". I highly recommend it. It does taste much better than the store-bought version.

I've made this 3 times now, and it is really easy and delicious. I like this way better than store bought, and I can control the ingredients such as no corn syrup etc. If it seems a little strong, you can dilute it with a little water.
