Taste Buds: Jack Daniel BBQ Sauce


One of my many jobs while in college was working as a waitress at TGI Fridays. Pretty much the best thing on the menu was anything and everything smothered in the Jack Daniel Glaze sauce that they made. Every now and again I will get a craving for it and look up yet another recipe trying to duplicate its tangy awesomeness. I think I found a winner today, and even if it was not EXACTLY perfect I was so super happy to find something that was so close and so super duper yummy. I decided to slather the sauce all over some fall off the bone baby back ribs. YUM!

    RECIPE: Jack Daniel Baby Back Ribs
For the Ribs with Sauce
1 Rack Baby Back Ribs
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon olive oil
2/3 cup water
1 cup pineapple juice
¼ cup teriyaki sauce
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1 1/3 cup dark brown sugar
3 teaspoon minced onion
1 tablespoon Jack Daniels whiskey
1 tablespoon corn starch
1 teaspoon crushed pineapple

1. Put ribs in crockpot and let cook for 5 hours on medium heat.
2. Two hours before ribs are done start the sauce. In a small saucepan brown garlic in olive oil
3. Combine water, pineapple juice, teriyaki sauce, soy sauce and brown sugar in a saucepan over medium heat.
4. Stir occasionally until mixture boils then reduce heat to simmer – do not cover.
5. Add remaining ingredients stirring occasionally.
6. Let simmer, making sure it does not boil over for 30-45 minutes until thick and syrupy.
7. One hour before ribs are done drench with sauce.
8. Put another coat on 30 minutes before ribs are done.

For the Coleslaw
1 head green cabbage
1 large carrot
¾ cup mayonnaise
3 tablespoons sour cream
2 tablespoons white vadilla onion
3 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons white vinegar
1 tablespoon dry mustard
2 teaspoon celery salt
1 teaspoon fresh dill
salt and pepper to taste

1. Combine the shredded cabbage and carrots in a large bowl.
2. Whisk together the mayonnaise, sour cream, onion, sugar, vinegar, mustard, celery salt, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl, and then add to the cabbage mixture. Mix well to combine and taste for seasoning; add more salt, pepper, or sugar if desired.
3. Cover with saran wrap and let sit in the refrigerator for at least an hour or overnight to combine flavors.
