Critical Ingredients

This recipe only has 9 ingredients, all which are pretty common. If you don’t have Worcestershire sauce, use soya sauce. The only advantage of Worcestershire sauce – at least if your using a good one like Lea and Perrin’s – is that it is gluten free unlike most soya sauces. If you are vegan, you can use a flavor-less cooking oil instead of butter.
