Default Sugar Free BarBeQue Sauce

  • 2 strips of thick bacon, chopped fine (or see note)
  • 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, (or see note)
  • 3 T mustard
  • 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 pinch ground cloves
  • Hot sauce to taste
Note 1: If you prefer to leave the bacon out, add 1-3 teaspoons of liquid smoke, to taste, near the end of the cooking. Alternatively, add some smoky flavor using 1 teaspoon of smoked paprika, or chipotle powder to taste.

Note 2: If you can't find low carb catsup, leave it out, but add about a tablespoon of vinegar and some sweetener, 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.

Wow, thanks for the recipe. I eat extremely low carb--no grain or sugar, so this is wonderful. I also love your signature quote--how true! Thanks again for sharing.

Thanks! I will try this with little smokies or precooked meat balls for an appetizer to take to our Christmas Quilt Guild meeting. It will go great in the crockpot! Several people have sugar problems in the Guild. Thanks!
