Low Carb BBQ Sauce

Keto Friendly

It is that time of year again!  Warm weather, school is coming to an end, family get-together's and of course BBQ's. Grilling is my favorite way of cooking. During the season I really don't think I turn the stove on, except for breakfast or rainy days. When I switched to a low carb lifestyle I was nervous that I would have to give up BBQ sauce.  The carb count is SO HIGH!

Sugar Free BBQ Sauce Recipe

After examining the labels of every single BBQ sauce in the local stores and pricing low carb options online; I decided to not settle or go broke and make my own low carb bbq sauce,  keto bbq sauce recipe- it is both! This sugar free bbq sauce recipe has significantly less sugar than any sauce you will find in the store.  

My recipe is a combination of sweet & smokey with just a hint of spice.  It can be customized easily to fit your favorite flavor profile. See notes below*

Here is how to make our homemade

Low Carb BBQ sauce

Makes about 1 pint. Serving Size about 2 tablespoons.

  • ¼ cup Lakanto Gold brown sugar substitute OR sweetener of your choice (Use code MELISSA20 at checkout to save!)
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup white vinegar
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 tablespoons real butter
  • 1 can tomato paste

Instructions 

In a sauce pan over medium, add sweetener, vinegars and water. Mix until sweetener is dissolved.

Add tomato paste and remaining ingredients. Stir until fully combined. Bring to a boil, reduce to simmer.

Let simmer about 15 minutes to incorporate all ingredients and build flavor.

NOTES*

  1. If you like a thinner sauce, add a touch more water until desired thickness is reached.
  2. If you like a more sour sauce, add a little more vinegar.
  3. Go easy with the liquid smoke, a little goes a long way!
  4. This recipe is very easily adaptable to different sweeteners.  Using a white sweetener will result in a sauce that is more red in color.
  5. The butter makes a nice glossy finish and helps the sauce adhere to whatever you brush it on.

Store in pint sized mason jar refrigerated for up to 2 weeks.

  1. Instead of liquid smoke I used an imported smoked paprika, otherwise the rest of the recipe was identical.

    AMAZING! Kicks a bit at the back of the throat and a deliciousness lingers. Topping my pulled pork with this tonight. Not going to tell anyone it's keto.

  2. OH MY GOSH, THIS STUFF IS SO GOOD! I added just a splash more liquid smoke. This beats ANY BBQ sauce I have bought from a store. Thank you!!

    • Sorry tom, our stores around here only carry one size so we didn't think to add that.
      I believe it is 6 oz.
