TGI Friday's Jack Daniels Grill Glaze

You can make a recipe for TGI Friday's Jack Daniels Grill Glaze for your favorite types of meat for your friends and family at home.


  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon Tabasco sauce
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup Jack Daniel's Ole No. 7 & Tennessee Whiskey
  • 2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 beef bouillon cubes
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce


Combine ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Let cool. Use as a glaze on meat, poultry, and seafood just before removing from grill.

To prepare chicken breasts using Jack Daniel's grill glaze: use 2 (4oz.) breasts for each serving. Marinate chicken in your choice of marinade for 5 to 10 minutes. Place chicken on the grill or in a saute pan. While cooking, baste often with marinade. When cooked to your satisfaction, brush liberally with glaze. Remove immediately to a serving dish. Glaze burns quickly and can be difficult to remove from grills or pans if left to burn onto surface.

    in the video you say u are adding rice wine vinegar and then in the typed recipe it says red wine vinegar. is there a difference if so which one is the correct one.

    Tastes good but maybe a little too much tabasco. Would try with a tsp of Tabasco next time rather than a tbsp as it overpowered the smooth JD flavour.

  • Julie

    Well, mine didn’t turn out exactly like Friday’s sauce. I was a little disappointed but I am going to let it cool in the fridge for a couple of days and try it again. I thought maybe it was missing something to make it taste a little sweeter.

      So the sauce wasn’t sweet enough for you? I just want to know what you didn’t like about the sauce.

    I have made this recipe before but it called for roasted garlic and crushed pineapple. It was a little complicated to make but well worth it. Recipe did not double well

    • Chuck Doubleoseven

      Yeah, its gotta have both those or it just isnt close enough.

      This recipe is okay, but contains too much whiskey and it pushes through to give a little funny-salty flavor. Also if you use this much tabasco you better like that taste because it stands out also and flat burns your mouth. I used a scant teaspoon of tabasco and a tablespoon of JD and it turned out much more like the restaurant version.

    This was excellent on the steak we made last night.
