If you grew up in middle America in the 80’s or 90’s (maybe prior; not sure when it was launched)You probably had Hamburger Helper at least a few times. It was a regular at my house growing up.

This recipe is free from those nasty additives, but full of the yumm. (and even has some veggies, added! Look at me mom!)

NOT Worcestershire SauceChutzpah
Worcestershire or Worcester sauce is a fermented liquid condiment created in the city of Worcester in Worcestershire, England during the first half of the 19th century. It’s typically made from a base of vinegar and flavored with anchovies, molasses, tamarind, onion, garlic, and other seasonings. The flavor is savory and sweet with a distinct tang provided by the vinegar. It is commonly used to flavor meat, soups, stews, marinades, and even beverages such as Bloody Marys. This a mysterious-yet-flavorful brown liquid that is considered a staple in most American kitchens. How the chicken neck do you pronounce Worcestershire? Don’t pronounce that first R, and also make sure you put the schwa in the last syllable. Some people will want to say ‘shire’, but just like the state ‘New Hampshire’, -shire, -shire, it’s a schwa in that last syllable. Maybe this should be renamed to something else, but I miss this sauce, and used it quite frequently.
