Dom’s Easy & Versatile Meat & Poultry Glaze

 

This is something I’ve been refining for a few years. It’s a hot caramel glaze that is great both in the oven & on the grill. I find it especially tasty on turkey parts which you can often get on sale at your local supermarket but it works on any meat.

 

Ingredients:

 

12 Ounces “Dr. Pepper” or generic equivalent. Which is funny because i hate that soda to drink but it works great in this recipe , though root beer or cola would work as well.

4 ounces cheap wine

1 cup brown sugar (you could use white sugar I suppose but i can’t stand the stuff personally)

3 ounces of honey

1 tablespoon salt

onion & garlic powder

a dash of paprika

several grinds of black pepper or about 2 tablespoons of pre ground

2 ounces of olive oil

 

To make simply add all of the liquid ingredients and bring to a nice rolling boil, add the spices and reduce down until it’s nice and thick.

 

In application use a preferably silicon basting brush to put directly onto the meat while still piping hot so as it cools it will caramelize & harden somewhat. It’s a great and quick way to add flavor when you don’t have time to marinate, it also works well if you have a seasoning injector.
