Sugar Free BBQ Sauce Recipe


  • 2 strips of thick bacon, chopped fine
  • 1 small onion, minced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced or 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 small can (6 oz) tomato paste
  • 1 can (12 oz) diet (sugar-free) cola – Splenda-sweetened preferred
  • 1/4 cup low carb (sugar-free) catsup
  • 3 T mustard
  • 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 pinch ground cloves
  • Hot sauce to taste


  1. Fry the bacon in a saucepan – a 2 qt pan works well.
  2. Add the onion and cook over medium until soft – 3-5 minutes. Add garlic at this point if you’re using fresh and stir it for half a minute or so.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients, plus about half a cup of water. Stir well.
  4. Simmer for 20-30 minutes. It will cook down a bit and flavors will combine.
  5. Adjust the seasonings so you have the balance you want – you can add vinegar, artificial sweetener (liquid preferred), or hot sauce. (If it’s too hot, adding more sweetener will tone it down.)

    The recipe makes approximately 10 servings of 1/4 cup each. Each serving has about 3.5 grams of carbohydrate plus 1 gram of fiber.
