Low Carb BBQ Sauce

Feb 24, 2011

How many of us have gone to the doctor (especially if you are of the over 40 persuasion) and were told to lose some weight?  Have you been to these Dietician specialists, and see what they recommend for losing weight?  Meat the size of a deck of cards?  Seriously?   In addition, the number of Carbohydrates they allow is excruciatingly low.  In the Joppie house, we recently began to count our carbs, and follow the plan, and it’s tough!  And how does my husband, whatever he goes by, Croppy, Hoppy, or is it Choppy Joppie, do when he is one of the GrillinGuys????

Well this recipe sounds perfect!  And anything with Bacon is A-Ok with us!

Low Car BBQ Sauce 

Here is your shopping list:

  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 2 minced garlic cloves
  • 2 six-ounce cans of tomato paste
  • ½ cup sugar-free ketchup
  • 6 tablespoons of any mustard
  • 2 – 12 ounce cans of diet Coke or diet Dr. Pepper
  • 1 cup of water
  • 2 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce
  • 5 strips of bacon

First, fry bacon in a large saucepan, then add the onion and cook over medium heat for 4 minutes.  Add the garlic and stir it well for 30-45 seconds.  Add the rest of the ingredients and mix thoroughly, and allow the sauce to simmer on low heat for 20 minutes. Be careful to stir it often to keep it from scorching.

Store it in your refrigerator until you are ready to use it.  You can play with some other spices such as:

Cumin, Paprika, Coriander, Lemon Peel or whatever you like.

Enjoy it with no guilt!
