25 minutes
Calories 170kcal


  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon worchestershire
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 3/4 cup ketchup (Heinz 'No Sugar Added')
  • 3 tablespoons chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 clove garlic (Heinz 'No Sugar Added')
  • 3 celery ribs (Heinz 'No Sugar Added')
  • 1/2 teaspoon Truvía® natural sweetener
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum


  • Grab a saucepan and dump in the water, vinegar, Worcestershire, soy and low-sugar ketchup.
  • Chop up a few tbsp of onion, 3 stalks of celery and clove of garlic – add that to the mix.
  • Follow with the sweetener and spices, bay leaves, and some liquid smoke.
  • Stir it up, and bring it all to a boil.
  • Pro tip - playing Bob Marley’s Stir It Up in the background infuses some Jamaican spiciness, so resist the urge to do so if you’re not a fan of heat.
  • Humming it is okay, however.
  • Reduce the heat and let it simmer and do its thing for 30-60 minutes.
  • Remove from stove and pass the sauce through a strainer.
  • Let the sauce cool then add in the xanthum gum and mix well – this will help thicken the sauce.
  • If you prefer a more runny sauce for your brisket or pulled pork, than go ahead and skip this step.
  • Pop the sauce in the fridge for a little while to allow it to set-up, and you’re good to go.
  • The sauce is even better the next day, so if you’re not a procrastinator like me, make this stuff the day before your next big cook-out.
  • There you have it, guilt-free keto BBQ sauce.
  • Now fire up that grill!
