Someone left the bottle empty in the fridge (well, just a few drops is the same as empty). I had just enough to copy it, then when I brought a sample to my unsuspecting taste-tester, he liked mine better than the original! I washed my Heinz 57® bottle, multiplied this recipe to fill 'er up, and haven't bought another name brand since. Hope you like it!

Cook's Note:

Tabasco(R) is optional. My family actually prefers it without hot sauce in it, but the recipe is meant to copy the original.

All I can say is WOW! I loved it, but it was not near enough. I came up with my own larger recipe. My carb count was different, but I believe it was my use of Heinz low carb ketchup that made the difference. 1 13oz bottle of Heinz no added sugar ketchup 1/2 cup of worcestershire sauce 1/4 cup of yellow mustard 3 tbls of lemon juice 2 tbls of Texas Pete This gave me a yield of 20.58oz, with a total of 52 grams of carbs. With a serving size of 2 tbls, the total carbs per serving is 1.6 grams. I mixed everything up in a 4 cup measuring cup, and poured it into an empty ketchup bottle. Hope this helps those who want a little bit more... Read More

Nope. Not even close. If you grew up on Heinz 57, this simlpy will not do. Kinda gross with the Worcester and lemon. Just spend the $5. Read More

The one thing that I like about this recipe is that it's scaled down to 1 serving. No need to have a bottle of Heinz 57 Sauce sitting in the cabinet, just mix up what you need that day, and it's done. Honestly, I haven't bought Heinz 57 Sauce in years, so I'm not 100% sure how close this is to it. But I will say that we liked this sauce, and we did like the Tabasco in it as well. Read More

BINGO! You nailed it. I love Heinz 57 with my fried taters. But when I went to pick up another bottle, I found the price had increased to $5.65 for a 20oz. bottle! Yikes! What on earth could they put in it that justifies that price??? I decided to find out if anyone had cracked the code, and found your recipe. Now I am abundant in my favorite tater sauce at a fraction of the cost. You're a genius - thanks for sharing. Read More

You've created the perfect copycat recipe NWMama. Thank you for sharing it. I have made this several times now and it's perfect as-is. Just FYI the brand of worchestershire sauce you choose does make a difference. My last batch was with the store brand and it tasted off. I won't do that again. Read More

I made it. However I did not find it to taste much like Heinz 57. It did taste like most steak sauces. Where as Heinz 57 I actually like on grilled chicken. I'm not sure about this sauce. As far as going on steak I'm not sure what kind of steak everyone else eats but a steak doesn't need sauce. So yes its great if you like steak sauce. (crazy) but not Heinz sauce. Read More

I was looking for a Heinz 57 copycat because I can't eat the original anymore now that I'm watching my sugar & corn syrup intake. This tasted like the original to me, just without all the sweet junk. Read More

VERY GOOD! I tasted this sauce after mixing and I honestly can say I thought it was going to be a loser. I refrigerated it until dinner giving the ingredients time to blend. When served with a steak it was excellent! It truly can compete with any store bought steak sauce. Thank you NWMama for sharing your recipe. I will be making it again! Read More

I will never again pay for a bottle of Heinz 57 sauce! I think this sauce is actually better than the original and VERY inexpensive to make. Read More
