Paleo Worcestershire Sauce Recipe

Worcestershire sauce is one of those things that is in so many recipes that it makes sense to have a bottle of it in the fridge at all times. But, due to my own laziness, rather than making it (because the store-bought variations are not an option due to their ingredient lists), I just leave it out of the recipes I have that use it. That makes no sense. And of course, this sauce is gluten-free.

Quick & Easy Sauce

There are several Worcestershire sauce uses, so I decided I’d make my own version that works in a variety of dishes. My favorites are the Instant Pot Beef Stew and the Prime Rib Au Jus. This Worcestershire adds such a depth of flavor to these dishes that I now realize we were missing out on. But while traditional Worcestershire sauce is fermented, this one is not, so it can be done in under 30 minutes and ready to use in dinner that same night.

What if you cannot have coconut? I'm allergic to it.

Kendra.. Do you think I can make this WHOLE30 compliant, by switching out the molasses and using dates or figs and just leaving out the Coconut sugar???

I haven't tried this without the molasses, it definitely adds to the flavor. I would say you could sub it out with date paste (ground up dates with a little water to thin it out). Figs would be too "seedy". And yes, just leave out the coconut sugar.
