Jack Daniel's BBQ Sauces - A review, a give-away and a recipe!

I was a little surprised to be asked to review the range of Jack Daniel's barbecue sauces, as they're a brand I would associate with meat-based rather than vegetarian meals. Never-the-less I was happy to try them out and see how well they would go with veggie food, as all of the sauces in the range are vegan.

I opened all the bottles and had a good sniff. I must admit that the smell wasn't particularly appealing, as they had quite a strong smoky aroma. The initial taste of the sauces was of the artificial smoke flavour, but after that, the sweet and spicy flavours came through. The one sauce that I really wasn't over-keen on was the Full Flavour Smoky, as the smoke flavour was overwhelming and masked the flavour of the other ingredients. The other sauces were more subtle, but I didn't feel that they tasted sufficiently different from each other to make it worth buying them all, when just one would do the job!

The sauces worked well with veggie burgers and sausages, and the Smoky Sweet Glaze tasted good roasted vegetables. After trying out a few different recipes with them, I decided that my favourite was the Hot Chilli Sauce (which was spicy rather than hot!), so that's the one I used in this dish. This recipe would work well as a Halloween or Bonfire Night meal. Just double or treble the ingredients to cook for more people.

Sausages and Beans Baked in BBQ Sauce (vegan)
Serves 4
  • 1 or 2 firm vegan sausages per person
  • 1 medium onion, cut in half and sliced
  • 2 red bell peppers, cut in half, de-seeded and sliced
  • 2 sticks of celery, sliced
  • 1 tin of baked beans or mixed beans in tomato sauce
  • 2 tbsp tomato purée
  • 2 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • ½ tsp dried mixed herbs
  • 125ml/½ cup of bbq sauce (I used Jack Daniel's Hot Chilli Sauce)
©
Pre-heat the oven to 180C/170C fan/350F/Gas 4.
Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in an oven-proof dish.
Add the vegetables and sausages and cook for 10 minutes.
Mix the tomato purée, vinegar and BBQ sauce together in a bowl or jug, then stir in the beans.
Pour the sauce and beans over the sausages and vegetables and stir together.
Reduce the oven temperature to 170C/160C Fan/325F/Gas 3.
Cover the dish with foil or a lid and bake for a further 30 minutes.
Serve with jacket potatoes and corn on the cob.

Alternatives: Place all of the ingredients in the slow cooker and cook for 3 hours on high or 7 hours on low. You may wish to brown the sausages off first.

The Jack Daniel's range is now available to buy in all major supermarkets.

    Jacket potato for Bonfire Night

    ReplyDelete
  19. I love turnip, honey & roasted garlic soup. (Ingredients are 25g butter, 1 onion, 3 carrots, 2 potatoes, 300g turnips, 1 stick celery, 750ml chicken stock, 4 tsps honey, 6 cloves garlic roasted in skin until soft)
    Basically, fry the onion first until soft, add all the other ingredients apart from the garlic and honey and simmer for 1 hour. Add the garlic (squeezed from the skins) and honey. Season to taste.
