While Lea & Perrins this is not, it is unmistakably Worcestershire sauce. The strong malt vinegar tang holds secrets of flavor that I can now identify more clearly as anchovy, soy sauce, molasses, chilies, and tamarind, among many others that come together in a seamless sauce.

Welsh rarebit just seemed right. It was devastatingly cold outside, and I needed something to warm my insides and soothe my head. For those of you scratching your heads, Welsh rarebit is English dish of a cheese sauce on toast. But it's so much more than that, as the cheese sauce combines beer with a good aged Cheddar. It also contains a good dose of Worcestershire sauce and mustard, so it has an edge. It's wonderfully complex, and a far cry from most cheddar sauces.
This Alton Brown recipe takes the flavorings from Salisbury steak, but swaps the ground beef for the cube steak. Now, I doubt cube steak in any form would impress those who weren't fortunate enough to have it as a child. As for me, this is straight-up nostalgia on a plate—no A1 necessary.

With as many versions of this drink as there are people drinking them, the Michelada is also quite flexible, making it a great choice for a Memorial Day weekend gathering.
