TGI Fridays Jack Daniels Sauce
Here is a super special post for you today! This is TGI Fridays Jack Daniels Sauce. If you close your eyes while you are tasting this wonderful sauce you will think you are right there sitting in your favorite booth at TGI Fridays! Oh, by the way, it doesn’t even have to be a Friday!
We love making things saucy and have even made our own Homemade Cayenne Pepper Sauce from the cayenne peppers we grew in the backyard last year.
The recipe for this sauce is so easy to make, you probably have most of the ingredients in your kitchen already. This secret sauce is over the top and is not only great on pork but chicken and even a burger or steak!
Up here in the great white north, we try to use our grills, smokers, and BBQ’s all year round, but it can prove challenging sometimes! I remember one Christmas it was particularly cold and windy and I was smoking a turkey for Christmas dinner. The wind was so crazy and I had to build a windbreak with cardboard in order to keep the temperature up on the smoker!
Grilling and BBQing can be less of an issue, especially if you have a gas or propane grill. I will be out on the deck year-round. Sometimes having to shovel a path through the snow, but it’s worth it for that beautiful grilled or BBQ taste. This TGI Friday’s sauce is something that makes all that work worthwhile; it is sooo good!
How do you cook baby back ribs with Jack Daniels?
There are a great many ways to cook ribs. Here is one of my favorite methods. Get out a large roasting pan with a metal rack and fill the bottom with 3/4 of an inch of water. Cover and roast the ribs in the oven until they are done. They will be nearly fall off the bone, but not quite. After all, who wants the meat falling off your ribs, and all you have is a pile of bones!
The next step is to get them on the grill to finish. This is where you get to slather that wonderful Jack Daniels sauce on them. You also want to brown them up. Get some really great grill marks on your ribs.
I also like to serve this great sauce in a small bowl on the side for dipping!
How do you make TGi Fridays JD sauce?
Yes, it is perfect on ribs, but it also is great on just about anything else that you put on your grill from burgers to chicken! To start off you have to roast a head of garlic in the oven. Cut off the top and drizzle with olive oil and roast for about an hour and let cool. Don’t eat it right away! You are going to need it! Squeeze the roast garlic into a small bowl and set aside.
Next, in a medium saucepan mix water, pineapple juice, teriyaki sauce, soy sauce, and brown sugar. Cover with a lid and let the mixture simmer, stirring occasionally until the sugar is dissolved. Add the remaining ingredients and let simmer for 40-50 minutes.
Make sure your sauce has reduced, it should be thick and syrupy and able to coat the back of a spoon.
