Low Carb Barbecue Sauce


This is the recipe I like to use for ribs. Brush it on 15 minutes before the ribs are done, then again when you take them out. It’s super fast and easy to make!



6 oz can tomato paste
12-16 oz diet root beer or Dr. Pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
3 tablespoons mustard
1 tablespoon Worcestershire
1 teaspoon liquid smoke
1 teaspoon vinegar
Frank’s Hot Sauce to taste

Combine everything in a small pot over medium low heat until gently bubbling. Adjust seasonings to taste! Simmer for 15 minutes or so.
I like to pour in some grease from the pork ribs to fatten it up before I brush it on.

This makes 6 very generous servings at just under 5 net carbs. I used maybe a third of the sauce for a large (served 4) rack of pork ribs.

  1. Have you considered using zevia for the diet soft drink in the BBQ sauce recipe? It uses stevia as a natural sugar free sweetner and is supposed to be healthier than the other brands using artificial sweetners.
