    Soy sauce can be a good substitute if you don’t have Worcestershire sauce. Garlic powder and onion powder can enhance the flavor if fresh ingredients are not available.

    Simmering the Mixture: After adding the beef broth, let the mixture simmer until most of the liquid has evaporated. This step is crucial for achieving the perfect consistency—moist but not soupy.

    Pickles, a slice of cheese, and sliced onions are classic toppings. French fries and potato chips make great sides.
