Are you looking for Jack Daniel’s glaze? Well, you’ve come to the right place. This is that stuff you enjoyed from the TGIFridays menu, only BETTER. This is great on steak, chicken, shrimp and burgers!

~ Jack Daniel’s Glaze ~

(makes approximately 2 cups)

1 cup dark brown sugar

1/2 cup Jack Daniel’s whiskey

1/2 cup soy sauce

1/2 cup ketchup

1 heaping Tablespoon steak sauce (such as Heinz 57)

1 heaping Tablespoon Sriracha hot sauce (or your favorite)

3 teaspoons apple cider vinegar

2 teaspoons bacon drippings

2 teaspoons garlic powder

1 teaspoon onion powder

1 teaspoon paprika

1/2 teaspoon chipotle powder

a pinch of cayenne pepper

Combine all glaze ingredients in a medium size saucepan. Simmer until slightly thickened over medium-low heat for about 5 minutes. Stirring frequently with a wire whisk.

If you enjoy the Jack Daniel’s selections on the TGI Fridays menu, then I think you’ll thoroughly enjoy this Jack Daniels Tennessee whiskey glaze. It’s SO good! It’s a great alternative to barbecue sauce!

    Hi Irene! We’ve loved this sauce for sooo long….never thought we could make it at home. Thanks so much. Friday’s sauce has tiny chopped onions. Do you think those are added during the cooking process, or after?

      Hi Dorothy! :) Melissa here… I added onion powder instead of the chopped onions, but you could certainly do both. Just chop them fine and add them during the cooking process. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do. XO

    Sounds wonderful.

    Could this recipe be poured into sterilized jars, water bathed, and shelf stored un-opened for a period of time, given as a gift, with a note saying “Once opened, store in refrigerator – good for two weeks.”???

    Thank you.

    Is this something that could be canned/bottled? I have 2 bottles I bought when we went on the tour – my husband and I neither drink whiskey. But I was there and I like to shop and it was the only thing they were selling. BIG BRAIN DRAIN…:)

    Could we omit the bacon drippings? Or sub it for something else?

      Hi Ashley,
      I’ve never tried subbing something else for the bacon drippings, but you can certainly try.

    We loved this sauce as well, having changed to cleaner eating, removing overly processed food TGIF’s has been out for a while. What would be a good substitute for the Steak Sauce? Love your blog!

    This stuff is so good! I use it on steaks and chicken for the most part. I ran out of Jack so I had to improvise a few weeks ago and all we had was Wild Turkey. It’s a different flavor but still so good!

    Does this flame (catch on fire on the stove) to burn off the alcohol?

      Thankfully out of all the times I’ve made it the alcohol has never caught fire. It’s just smells very strong for a few minutes as it heats up.
