Why You’ll Love This Worcestershire Ketchup

  • Cuisine Inspiration: American
  • Primary Cooking Method: No-cook
  • Dietary Info: Gluten-free, Dairy-free
  • Skill Level: Easy

When my kids were little, these wanted to eat everything with ketchup. So I started making my own homemade ketchup. But as I made the basic version more and more, I realized that the possibilities for adding different flavors were endless – just change up the liquids and spices. We ended up with Balsamic Ketchup and Buffalo Ketchup, and finally this Worcestershire Ketchup. I love putting steak sauce on a burger, so I thought that those savory, umami flavors would be perfect for upping my ketchup game. Here’s why you’ll love it too…

  • Great flavor. I call it “fancy pants ketchup” fancy pants ketchup. It is somewhere in between plain tomato ketchup and steak sauce with a more complex and interesting flavor that the basic stuff.
  • Simple ingredients and prep. No added sugar and only a handful of items you already have in your pantry. Plus all you have to do it stir it together – no cooking required!
  • No gluten or dairy. While you do have to check the label on your Worcestershire Sauce, there are several gluten free brand available. So this is a great gluten free and dairy free way to add extra deliciousness to your meals.

What You’ll Need

Here’s a quick list of the ingredients to make this homemade ketchup. Be sure to scroll to the recipe card for the full amounts and directions for making and storing the Worcestershire ketchup.

  • Tomato Paste. You’ll need one small 6 oz. can.
  • Worcestershire Sauce. Be sure yours is gluten free, if needed. At this time, in the United States, the French’s and Lea & Perrins brands are gluten free, but this can vary by country of manufacture and can change at any time. So always check!
  • Seasonings. A blend of salt, pepper, dried thyme, and dry mustard enhances the savory flavors.

      1. Okay Horrible was a little too harsh. the tomatoe paste was too intense and it seemed like to much Worcestershire, maybe I read it wrong. Is it really a 1/2 cup to 6 ounce Tomatoe paste.

        1. Yes, that is correct, but we tend to like things a bit more acidic and strong flavored. I also love mixing this into burger, so you want that flavor so that it comes through when mixed with the beef. I should have put the note as I did on my balsamic ketchup recipe, but you could use less Worcesteshire, and then adjust the consistency with water. I base my homemade ketchups on this recipe, but found that it was too watery and not vinegary enough for my taste, so I just use all vinegar in place of the vinegar+water http://www.fixmeasnack.com/2010/01/homemade-ketchup/

          thanks for your feedback!
