Tips

Using Worcestershire sauce in a kosher kitchen can be tricky, because it contains anchovies. Check the kosher certification mark. When it is accompanied by a "fish" notation, it means that the level of anchovies is greater than 1.6% of the whole product. When the kosher certification mark stands alone, the percentage of anchovies is less than 1.6%. when using Worcestershire sauce with meat dishes, use a brand with a stand-alone kosher certification.
