Worcestershire Sauce Substitute

Making a recipe that calls for Worcestershire sauce and don’t have it? Or need a vegan substitute? Worcestershire sauce is a common condiment that’s intensely savory and complex. It adds umami (savory flavor) to recipes of all kinds, from Caesar dressing to chili to the classic Bloody Mary. Worcestershire sauce was invented in Britain in the mid-1800’s. Its flavor is tangy, salty, sweet, savory, and a little funky all at once! It includes cured anchovies, meaning that Worcestershire is not vegetarian or vegan.

1. Soy sauce, ketchup and white wine vinegar

The best Worcestershire sauce substitute? A combination of soy sauce, ketchup, and white wine vinegar! This combination is a mix of pantry ingredients that tastes oddly similar to the real thing. Here’s what you need for a small batch (multiply as needed):

  • 1 tablespoon ketchup

  • ½ tablespoon soy sauce (or tamari or coconut aminos)
  • 1 dash hot sauce (optional)

You’ll find this mix of ingredients brings in just the right elements: tangy, salty, savory, and a little sweet. If you have it, hot sauce adds a bit of the spice that Worcestershire sauce brings from chili extract. You could even add a dash of fish sauce, but it’s not needed. Use tamari (gluten free) or coconut aminos (gluten free and soy free) as soy sauce substitutes.

2. Other ideas: soy sauce or vinegar

Don’t have all of the ingredients above? The overriding flavors in Worcestershire sauce are salty and tangy. If you don’t want to make the recipe above, you could use soy sauce, vinegar, or a mix of the two. You could also use miso in combination with either of the two. But the recipe above is really the best fit!
