Jack Daniel's Blackberry Steak Tips

(Another go at these today!   Put them in the sauce yesterday morning.   Tim will move my portion to the hotter part of the grill to crisp up the outsides this time around.)

We've got a diner in town that serves Jack Daniel's Blackberry Steak tips that Tim absolutely loves.    They are only open limited hours and it's always a long wait, which can be difficult with Jake.    I ran across this recipe earlier this year and squirreled it away until we could get some blackberries at a reasonable price.      I made up a half batch of the sauce and stuck it in the freezer.     I defrosted it on Thursday, bought the sirloin tips yesterday and marinated them overnight in it.      I reserved half for basting, but it turns out it didn't need it.
We preheated the grill to high on all 3 burners, then brushed the grates with oil and turned off the middle burner.   Cooked them over that indirect heat to our desired doneness (Tim likes med-rare, I like med-well).   I'd have preferred them with a little bit of a crispier exterior, but that's easily fixable next time.    

Not the most photogenic dish and I was hungry and in no mood to play with it   :)

 This one comes from Goodgrits.com and is definitely a winner.

 2             cups  ketchup
1/2                cup  sugar
1        tablespoons  brown sugar
  3/4           lb.  blackberries -- fresh or frozen
     1/4           cup  Jack Daniels or other bourbon
     1/4      teaspoon  cayenne pepper (next time would use 1/2)
     1/4      teaspoon  black pepper (next time would use 1/2)
1        tablespoons  yellow mustard
     1/8           cup  Worcestershire sauce
 3/4     teaspoon  salt

Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and cook on low heat for 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Process in a blender or food processor until consistency is smooth.
(I used the Blendtec and no seeds remained- if your blender or food processor leaves seeds, you may want to sieve them out)
