I have inherited a lot from my Dad, including a very similar taste in food. Which means that having my Dad round for dinner is a great excuse to cook what I'd really like to eat, if only I could be bothered to make it. This recipe for TGI Jack Daniel's sauce is one I had bookmarked, but had been a bit weary of attempting in case it tasted like a bad fake. Fortunately, it was worth the effort. It is still not close to the original Secret Recipe, which is good for me - I like having the excuse for a meal out. This recipe creates a rich dipping sauce, but you must serve it hot. Once it cools it creates a tar like substance, but it will liquefy again if you warm it through on the hob.
1 tsp onion granules
1 tbsp tabasco sauce
2 tbsp red wine vinegar
2 tbsp worcestershire sauce
120ml Jack Daniel's (doubled from the Original Recipe)
300g dark brown soft sugar (a little less than the original)
4 beef oxo cubes
Place all the ingredients into a saucepan, and on the smallest hob ring, turn the heat up high till the mixture starts to boil, stirring regularly.
Once the mixture is bubbling, turn the heat down, and stirring every few minutes let the sauce simmer for 15 minutes.
Serve in a pre-heated dish to help keep it warm.
