Whiskey Sauce for Meats and Vegetables

Wendy Rusch


I'm not kidding when I say this sauce is great with Meat AND Vegetables! This sauce is amazing!

We had it on shrimp, pork tenderloin, slab bacon, polenta AND broccoli! It was wonderful on all of it!!! It would be an awesome burger sauce and salmon glaze...it's so versatile.

Best part about this sauce is how easy it is to make!

I adapted this from TGIF's famous Jack Daniels sauce.

Stove Top


2 c
pineapple orange juice (or all pineapple)
3 Tbsp
red wine vinegar
1 - 15 oz
can crushed pineapple, do not drain
1 1/4 c
irish whiskey (or your fav whiskey)
1/2 c
worcestershire sauce
2 Tbsp
onion powder
4-6 clove
garlic, smashed or 1 tbsp garlic powder
beef bouillon, cubes
1/4-1 tsp
cayenne pepper (to taste)
2 3/4 c
brown sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

Add all ingredients to a large saucepan, mix well, bring to a boil, lower heat to a simmer, be sure to maintain a low boil.
Boil until mixture reduces by a third, 40-60 minutes. The longer you cook it, the thicker it will get. Last time I made this, I cooked it 1 1/2 hrs. It was perfect.
Remove from heat, run through a strainer to remove pineapple and garlic bits if desired. Allow to cool. Store in small pitcher, squeeze bottles or a bowl and keep refrigerated until needed.
Makes approx 2 1/2 - 3 cups. Enjoy!!!
*This recipe can easily be halved...but it's so good, if you do, you will wish you had more. :o)

*I used 1/4 tsp of cayenne, you knew it was there, but barely. So if you like heat...use more.
