My mom always said war-chester-shire sauce. I learned to pronounce it properly as wooster sheer like most folks here. I too use it in marinades for steaks, mix it in hamburgers and meatloaf. I always splash some in my tartar sauce too. Most any beef recipe can be boosted with it. I've never tried it on veggies but will have to give that a go.

Just shows how long it is since I last checked my bottle of L&P! (Or how much notice I take of this really quite useful thing that I have been ignoring all this time!)

Katy, the sauce is wooster sauce. So what do you call the city?

Also, what's umami sauce?

I use all the ways people mentioned, but haven't really tried it on vegis. I'll have to try that. It's good in some salad dressings. I don't much like it on steak.

I pronounce it Wister or Wiste-sher

I don't call the city anything!!! Never been there! It's "way oop north".

Honest answer? In my head the city is called "Works" - the city is spelt Worcestor, but is abbreviated as "Worcs".

As for umami, yes, I have paste not sauce. I doff my hat Sir.

Addie, if you look at a map of southeastern Virginia, you'll see lots of familiar place names. Some of the first European explorers found and named towns, rivers, etc., here, including the Elizabeth River right down the street from me.
Jamestown of course was named after King James. And there is Williamsburg, named after King William of Orange. A lot of the folks who came here named their town after the one they came from in England. I know there is more, but right now I am having a senior moment and can't think of them.

I pronounce it wuster sheer, but I abbreviate it for my grocery list worc.

I like your pronunciation best, Katy and I'm going to call it wooster sauce from now on. Like you said, it's easier to pronounce,

In my part of the southern US, we call it worster-Shire. Emphasis on the second syllable. Eat it on steak, add it to hamburger meat before cooking, in stews (especially a good shake into a Brunswick Stew) and mostly in Bloody Marys.
