Follow the other suggestions and it will turn out just like TGIFridays. I use it on pan-seared salmon all the time. It's our favorite sauce.

Love!!!! I used onion and caramelized them a bit first then added the Jack to deglaze. Next time I will cut Tabasco way down or eliminate it, but only because I don't remember the heat in this sauce. This is an awesome recipe!!!!

Made this the other night cause Hubby said he likes TGIF JD sauce. I only used 1 cup brown sugar. I will be making this sauce very often! He said it was perfect!!

this recipe is pretty accurate... I made changes as suggested (less brown sugar, added a little bit of garlic powder, and added some molasses) and came out damn near the same... thank you author!

Great recipe! Tastes almost the same as original one. I used just 1 cup of molasses and sauted onion in place of powder plus some garlic and it is fantastic!

This recipe is almost spot-on EXCEPT for the tobasco. The original TGI Friday's sauce does not have any heat whatsoever. So why is this in here? I foolishly followed the recipe to a T and included the 1 Tbsp... bad mistake. It was soooooo hot! I know at least one person in my house won't be able to eat this now.
Exclude the Tobasco or use no more than 1 tsp.
Other than that, it's perfect!

First off, tell angelos714 at the beginning of the JD barbecue sauce recipe it states makes one cup.
I followed all instructions(also adding bacon bits) and the results were outstanding.

I can't believe I just made Jack Daniel's sauce. Only 1 cup of brown sugar and ½ tsp of Tabasco makes the difference. Saute some onions with Olive oil(1 tsp) then add the Jack D. Let it simmer for 12 min then add other ingredients. This totally rocks. My Rib eye was the bomb (^_^)

I made it with half the amount of the ingredients posted (it was for small dishes), and it turned out the beef buillon's taste was too strong (2 cubes), covering the rest of the materials. The sauce was ruined...
