Taste Buds: Jack Daniel BBQ Sauce

033111_ribs

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

3 teaspoon minced onion
1 tablespoon Jack Daniels whiskey

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.
