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!
We tried this BBQ sauce last night and it was AWESOME! THANK YOU! For the person who complained about the taste in the first review, maybe they should substitute the low carb ketchup with tomato sauce. I think that should help. Thanks again!
