Paleo + Whole30 Homemade Worcestershire Sauce Recipe – tastes exactly like the real deal but sugar free and soy free! Made with coconut aminos and dates. Gluten free, grain free, dairy free, clean eating, real food.
One of my biggest cravings this pregnancy has been red meat. Specifically burgers. We’ve been cooking up burgers at least once a week because I can’t get enough of them.
Shawn makes the most delicious hamburgers, and his secret is worcestershire sauce on the patty. It gives it even more umami flavor. But sadly store bought worcestershire sauce has sugar and molasses in it.
I wanted to create a healthier version of our favorite store bought worcestershire sauce that was paleo + whole30 compliant. After a few trials, I nailed it!
This homemade worcestershire sauce is based off of the Lea and Perrins store bought version. I used the same ingredients they used, but instead of using sugar and molasses I swapped in dates.
The store bought version sits and ferments for months, which I didn’t want to have to do. Instead, I added in some coconut aminos to give it that umami flavor you get from fermenting. The results are almost identical! I am serious. I had Shawn do a blind taste test, and he actually chose my version over the store bought. And he is a worcestershire sauce fiend. If it passes his test, you know it’s good.
This homemade paleo + whole30 worcestershire sauce is such a snap to make. You add all the ingredients to a sauce pan to warm them for just 5 minutes to marry the flavors and soften the dates. Then you blend them all up in your high speed blender for 1 minute. Strain it and it’s ready to use! I can have a batch made in under 10 minutes. So easy.
Most of these ingredients you may already have in your house. The only pantry staple you may have to pick up is anchovy paste. Or you can use anchovy filets in a can. I prefer paste since this recipe doesn’t require a whole can of anchovies, and it’s a lot easier to store the paste in the fridge than an opened can.
You’re going to love the flavor this adds to your burgers and steak marinades, and love even more how healthy it is! Paleo, whole30, gluten free, grain free, dairy free, soy free, sugar free, clean eating, real food.Print

Place all ingredients in a small sauce pan. Simmer over medium heat for 5 minutes, just to soften the dates and marry the flavors.
Pour the warmed ingredients into your high speed blender, and blend on high speed for 1 minute. (Careful blending warm liquids!).
