Jack Daniel's Sauces - Gluten Free Options

I'm still waiting for the product mentioned yesterday to review, so in the meantime I thought I'd share my thoughts on the gluten free Jack Daniel's Sauces available.

I've been using the Hot Pepper Steak Sauce a lot recently, not on Steak, I don't eat red meat, but on both Chicken and Pork and it works incredibly well. I use it as a cooking sauce rather than a table sauce.

We've not been able to find our usual brand of Oyster Sauce which I use all the time so needed a substitute, we've had other Jack Daniel's Sauces previously so we thought why not give this one a go.

I should document the Taco Trays recipe using this because it really is lovely. Basically it's a base of Shallots and Mini Peppers, fried until they start to stick to the bottom of the pan, then add sliced Mushrooms and add something like - I've never written the recipe so all quantities are currently by eye - 200ml of water, a good glug of this sauce - about 3 tablespoons - and a Chicken Stock Pot. The Chicken is diced quite small and coated in a dry rub of herbs and spices that totally escape me because The Glutenite always does that bit, then it's coated in Corn Starch and added to the veg once it's soft.

That's our usual Saturday post shopping lunch which evolved from Nachos.

At the time of writing this, all but one of the Jack Daniel's Sauces are suitable for coeliacs, they are:

Hot Pepper Steak Sauce / Extra Hot Habanero Barbecue Sauce / Smooth Original Barbecue Sauce / Full Flavour Smokey Barbecue Sauce.

The one which contains gluten is the Smokey Sweet Barbecue Glaze. 

Bizarrely, all the gluten free ones have onion in them, which - as you'll know if you read my last post - I recently eliminated from my diet. I've had no ill effects from this sauce at all, so I guess it must be an amount I can tolerate which is going to make my carrot intolerance test interesting.

So yes, lovely sauces that can be used for cooking or dipping, you can find the ingredient info here (might have to enter your date of birth).

Tonight I find out just how intolerant I am to those pesky carrots, I plan on eating the gravy which has the carrots cooking in it but not eat the actual carrots. I'm hopeful that my tolerance is high enough, if not, next experiment - remove carrots completely (and lots of flavour *sigh*).

New post coming tomorrow :)
