The first thing my family used it for was as a steak sauce. I like to add it to a lot of dishes, especially things that are cooked with tomatoes and beef. I've never refrigerated it either.

According to the L&P Bottle I have, Refrigeration is not necessary after opening. I read it twice to make sure...

I love this stuff though. It's a MUST in home made Chex Mix.. Jerky too...

worcestershire sauce has a ton of salt in it, so i've is used as a salty flavoring component in things like burgers, meatloafs, soups, casseroles, salsas, sauces, roasts, potatoes, and steamed veggies, and drinks such as bloody marys.

my wife doesn't like it much, so i've found it to be a tricky thing to use as it's flavor seems to stand out in just about every dish. it's very distinct, so just a little goes a long way.

i, however, could drink the stuff straight. as a kid, my dad and i would head into the veggie garden with a bottle of worcestershire, splash a little on each of the freshly picked vegetables, and devour them.

i didn't know that butter and a little salt was good on steamed veggies until i was an adult, as i was hooked on the sauce. my favourite is on steamed baby peas. next would be boiled baby redskins.

keltin, do yourself a favor and get some garden ripe tomatoes, slice them into wedges, and splash on a good amount of worcestershire and let sit for a few minutes. then pig out. if you like bloody marys, you'll love it on fresh tomatoes. so much that you'll invariably end up sucking down the leftover mix of worcestershire sauce and tomato juice/mucillageny from the plate.

with no one looking of course.

I will definitely try this on fresh tomatoes. I don't know why I hadn't thought of this before. Thanks BT!

I use Worcestershire sauce on frozen french fries in the oven along with garlic, paprika and butter. The Worcestershire sauce adds a great flavor.

In the UK, the predecessor to Worcestershire sauce, Henderson Relish, is the "no meat pie" is complete with out kinda thing.

Like Worcestershire sauce, it is tangy, thin, dark, and mysterious. BUT, it is on the table at ALL pubs, and food halls. Like ketchup here, it is a very common condiment. I LOVE my cow pie just less then smothered with the stuff!

In the US it seems to just be what you said, an additive, but next time you have meat loaf, give it a shot like a regular 'ol condiment...or heck, even on french fries.

Just my $.02

barbara, et al,

try it on steamed or reheated canned veggies, like baby peas or corn. you'll love it.

still, there's something about tomatoes and worcestershire that matches perfectly.

Bucky, I do the same thing myself. On garden fresh tomatoes, nothing better. Oh yeah, I often toss on some shaved Parmesan or other cheese. Too bad the garden fresh guys are getting to the end of the season.

There are only two of us here but we go through a lot of the W stuff.

When I get into one of my peanut butter jags I will always add W sauce to it.

Or add a bit to a melted cheese sandwich.

My reflexive answer to 'Does this need anything?' is W sauce.

I know of few soups, any kind of stew like dish, or even some salads that cannot taste better with a splash. Ya just gotta keep it below the taste radar for guests.

As for me, splash it on. I love the stuff.

Oh yeah, and a tip of the bottle in a bloody Mary will take the drink over the top.
