How to Make Low Carb BBQ Sauce
Add the avocado oil to a saucepan and sauté the shallots over medium low heat until they’re translucent.
Add in the garlic and sauté for 15 seconds, then add in the chipotle peppers, sauce vinegar and Brown Swerve.
Stir until combined, then add in the remaining ingredients and whisk.
Simmer for 25 minutes or until thickened nicely.
Pour into a food processor to break up the chunks of raspberries, chipotle peppers, shallots and garlic.
If you'd like, you can also strain the seeds to have a completely smooth sauce, which is what I did. This really helps anyone who can't have seeds.
Allow to cool so the flavors can meld before serving. Store leftovers in an airtight jar in the fridge for up to 1 week or freeze.
How to Make the Best Keto BBQ Sauce Recipe
This is and easy homemade BBQ sauce that only takes minutes to make and with just a few simple tips, it will turn out perfect every time.
What's the best sweetener for Keto BBQ sauce?
Brown Swerve is, by far, my favorite sugar substitute. It has almost an identical flavor and texture of traditional brown sugar. It doesn't have an aftertaste like some other sweeteners like stevia and monk fruit, though if that's what you have on hand, you can certainly use it.
Can I Make Low Carb Raspberry BBQ Sauce in Advance?
If you're looking for time saving ideas, this BBQ sauce recipe is perfect for that. You can make it in advance and freeze it. Be sure you store it in an airtight container and not a freezer bag. Allow a little extra room at the top of the container as the sauce will expand slightly as it freezes. IT should keep in the freezer up to several months.
Adjust the Flavor to Your Liking
That is one of the most beautiful things about making your low carb sauces. You can adjust them as you go. Start out making this BBQ sauce as the recipe states. If it is too spicy or smoky, add a little more jam. And likewise, add a little extra liquid smoke or chipotle peppers if you'd like those flavors to come forward more so.
Is BBQ Keto? What are the Carbs in BBQ Sauce?
