I like to have this on my grilled food and barbecue. It is adapted from a recipe by Bill and Cheryl Jameson and their book "Smoke and Spice". I just try to use it sparingly because I find large amounts of Splenda to be only marginally acceptible on low carb.
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1 tablespoon onion powder
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 cup low-carb ketchup (I like Heinz 1-Carb brand)
- 1⁄3 cup Splenda granular
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- 1 tablespoon vinegar
- 1 tablespoon liquid smoke
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
- Combine ingredients and simmer covered for about 20 minutes.
- Cool mixture and refrigerate until needed.
I was really hoping to like this, but it had too much of a ketchup taste or after-taste really. The consistency was great. I doubled the liquid smoke and that helped some. But I didn't care for the extreme tang and the strong ketchup flavor. I'll keep looking!
A fantastic sweet and smokey BBQ sauce that goes well with anything! Best of all it won't ruin your diet! I added a little bit of Splenda Brown Sugar to mine. A great recipe!
Delish! I've had full carb barbecue sauce at restaurants that wasn't as tasty. I mixed all of the ingredients in a bowl and heated in the microwave. Tasted for changes, and it didn't need any. I then poured it over pork in the crock pot. So good!
