My low carb barbecue sauce recipes provide a healthy option without losing any of that BBQ flavor. They are suitable for diabetics and still great on the outdoor BBQ grill. You can enjoy all that barbecuing has to offer with several different low carb barbecue recipes.
When you think about carbohydrates you normally think about bread, pasta, potatoes etc. and you don't usually find these ingredients in barbecue sauce so what do we actually mean when we talk about low carb barbecue sauce recipes?
The carbohydrates that I've mentioned above are what are more commonly know as complex carbohydrates, in other words that are a combination of more simple molecules. Examples of these more simple molecules include glucose or fructose - you guess it, sugar!
So when we talk about low carb ingredients in BBQ sauce what we're really doing is finding ways to controll the amount of sugar, so start by looking for recipes that do not have any added sugar. Check out my Alabama White Barbecue Sauce for example.
If however you want something with a more traditional tomato base then this is essential reading. You’ll need to be patient in order to caramelize the onions but it’s worth it because it's the caramelization process that adds the natural sweetness to this sauce thus eliminating the need for added sugar.
Yield:- 2 cups or 480ml
Preparation Time:- 5 mins
Total Time:- 35 mins
A pinch each of:-
Put the onions in a non stick pan with a tablespoon of water and cook very very gently for an hour or two until the onion starts to brown (not burn).
Plenty of time now to light the BBQ.
Next add the tomato paste and water it down with the juice of the tomatoes stirring all the time so that you don't get any lumps.
Now throw in the rest of the ingredients together and bring to the boil, simmer for 30 minutes and now you’re in business. A healthy low carb bbq sauce.
