This is a recipe for an amazingly delicious bbq sauce that has no sugar. It's great on ribs, chicken...on anything really!!! I had originally gotten it from a friend years ago, and have since 'tweaked' it up!

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat, and cook and stir until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Mix the beef bouillon cubes and water in a cup until the cubes are softened and beginning to dissolve, and pour the water and bouillon cubes into the saucepan. Bring to a simmer, stirring to dissolve the cubes. Mix in the tomato paste, sucralose sweetener, Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard, liquid smoke flavoring, salt, cider vinegar, and hot pepper sauce. Stir until the sweetener has dissolved.

This recipe still requires a few modifications to be sugar free. You have to use sugar free dijon mustard and it's hard to find Worcestershire sauce that doesn't have high fructose corn syrup or something similar in the ingredients. Read More

My review of this recipe was horrifically edited. I am so disappointed in Allrecipes for doing that. This recipe is not good and was a waste of money. They way my review was re-written does not display that. I hope other people do not waste money as we did on this. We don't have a lot of money and I wanted to help others. Read More

Great sauce! Thick and tangy and smells good! I didn't have broth cubes, so used a packet of Lipton beefy onion soup mix. A new low-carb fave! Read More

I scaled everything down by one-half. Using another recipe I boiled the ribs to tenderize them then put this sauce and the drained ribs in a tin foil wrap. Out on the BBQ and it came out great! Hubby loved it. Big Smile Read More

Love this as it but also because it's easy to customize to taste. I used beef broth instead of water. Also if you want a more north east style bbq swap half the splenda for sugar-free maple syrup. Hotter add more tobacco or a dash of cayenne pepper. Smoked paprika never goes amiss in bbq sauce. Read More

This is a great tasting BBQ sauce if you're on a diet and want to go sugar-free. I divided it into freezer containers since I wouldn't be able to use it up in a short period of time. Read More

Excellent! Tangy and Smokey. I used half the amount of splenda the recipe called for because I like my bbq sauce more tangy than sweeet. I also used 1/2 cup of chicken stock instead of the bouillon cubes and water. I love this sauce I could eat it by the spoonful. Great for a low-carb diet. Read More

This makes a lot of sauce. Too bad because neither my husband or I cared for it. The flavors are just off. I'm a pretty experienced cook and don't know what I can do to "fix" it. Still looking for a good sugar free bbq sauce recipe. Read More
