This glaze works great with beef and turkey, or any meat really, and will compliment any Memorial Day BBQ spread.

 

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 shallots, minced
  • 1 large vidalia onion, minced
  • 1.5 large garlic cloves, peeled and minced 
  • 1/4 cup Olive oil
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 2.5 Valencia oranges
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup Jameson Irish Whiskey (or any whiskey of your choosing)
  • Caster sugar (Optional)
  • 1 tbsp Grand Marnier (Optional)

 

DIRECTIONS

  1. Place minced shallots, onions and garlic in 1/4 cup olive oil, salt, pepper and 1/2 cup water on a skillet, and cook on high heat heat until the vegetables are brown and well caramelized, about 25 minutes.  Stir frequently.
  2. Add brown sugar to the onion mixture.
    1. When the sugar melts, mix into the onions. 
    2. Taste, and add more brown sugar if a sweetness isn't detected
  3. Remove mixture from heat and allow to cool.
    1. Add the juice from 2 1/2 oranges
    2. Place in blender, and puree until there are no chunks.
  4. Add whiskey and Grand Marnier.
    1. Taste to ensure that the whiskey flavor is present.  If not to your liking, add more.
    2. Add a tablespoon of caster sugar if mixture doesn't have enough sweetness, and repeat.  Caster sugar is another name for super fine sugar, and will dissolve more quickly than regular granulated sugar.
  5. Enjoy warm or cold.  The glaze will last for 3 -4 days in the fridge.
