Keto/Low Carb Sugar-Free BBQ Sauce
I think I have missed homemade BBQ more than I realized. I grew up with my parents making homemade BBQ sauce all the time. I can even remember my daddy standing over a hot pot of BBQ sauce tasting it by the spoonful of until it tasted just right. I think he could have eaten BBQ sauce on everything. Although I have found sugar free bbq sauce that is good, nothing compares to homemade. A couple of weeks ago I started experimenting with transforming my family’s recipe to a low carb version. It’s a little tricky since BBQ is very sweet and is usually made with quite a bit of ketchup. I could have used the reduced sugar ketchup, but since I’m making it homemade, I wanted to control the sweeteners used. Since Sucralose can cause some people to have an insulin spike, I used regular tomato sauce instead then sweetened it with MonkFruit Golden Sweetener (a sugar-free brown sugar substitute). I can’t believe how much it tastes just like my family’s homemade sauce! I feel like my entire Keto world changed today for the better with this homemade sugar-free bbq sauce.
In case you haven’t seen the Lakanto Monkfruit Golden Sweetener, I found it on Amazon. It is a fabulous substitute for brown sugar and Keto friendly.
Mix tomato sauce and yellow mustard with a whisk until thoroughly combined in a saucepan.
Add all other ingredients and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat to low and allow the bbq sauce to cook down until it begins to thicken and all of the flavors are thoroughly combined (approx 20-30 minutes).
