Low Carb BBQ Sauce Recipe

Low Carb BBQ Sauce Recipe

Are you on a low carb diet? You can still enjoy a nice bbq in the backyard this summer without worrying about packing on the pounds. How? Try this low carb BBQ recipe.

The reason BBQ Sauce typically has high carb levels is the sugar, so if your are looking to cut out those carbs take your favorite BBQ recipe and replace the sugar with a substitute like Splenda..

 
Here is my favorite low carb BBQ sauce recipe:
1 cup prepared yellow mustard
1/2 cup granular no-calorie sucralose sweetener (e.g., Splenda ®)
3/4 cup cider vinegar
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon ground white pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon soy sauce
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon liquid smoke flavoring
 
In a saucepan over medium heat, stir together the mustard, sweetener, cider vinegar, chili powder, black pepper, white pepper, and cayenne pepper. Simmer for 30 minutes.
Stir in the soy sauce, butter, and liquid smoke; simmer for 10 more minutes. Cool completely, and refrigerate overnight to blend flavors before using.

To make your own low carb bbq sauce all you will need some type of base tomato product such as ketchup, tomato sauce, or a mixture of tomato puree and tomatoes. Then add what ever ingredients that you want. 

You can add any of the following items to give your bbq sauce a unique flavor: green peppers, Worcestershire sauce, habanero peppers, onions, red peppers, orange juice, jalapeno peppers, pineapple juice, soy sauce. This is not the complete list you can add anything you want that you feel will increase the distinctive flavor of your sauce. But, for it to be considered a low carb bbq sauce stay away from sugar or any items that have sugar added. Be careful with ketchup’s because most of the time they have sugar added. Be sure to read label’s closely.
