  • 2 cups sugar free ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons monkfruit sweetener (start with 2 tablespoons and work up from there)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar free tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 small sweet onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne (optional)
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon liquid smoke


  • Heat oil to a medium saucepan over a medium heat. Add olive oil.
    Next, add onions and cook for 2-3 minutes. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute.
    Add all remaining ingredients to the saucepan, except liquid smoke and butter. Stir through and simmer on low for 10-12 minutes.
    Taste the sauce, and add more monk fruit sweetener if needed. Use 1 tablespoon at a time. Keep in mind that this is a powerful sweetner!
    Remove sauce from the heat and stir in liquid smoke and butter.
  • Let the sauce cool for 10 minutes.
    Next, blend the sauce in two batches and return it back to the pot. Keep warm.
    Use right away on grilled or smoked meats, or cool sauce completely and store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. Freeze for up to 6 weeks.
    Rewarm the sauce before applying to grilled and smoked meats.
